    On my Hennessy I did the #4 zipper mod and I got rid of the bottom entry, this saved some weight (thanks 2QZQ). I also changed out my suspension for continuous loops and whoopie's saved some more weight but most of all made it MUCH easier to set up.

    Yea - I see what you are saying... I like the bottom entry.... I think I will keep it.
    There was an Old Man with a owl,
    Who continued to bother and howl;
    He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
    Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl
    .WOO

    my tarp weighted more after zipper mod??
    WOO, the different suspensions can save a little, but for sleep system savings i went with cuben tarp and 3/4 quilt. also my top quilts are all wearable and eliminate the need for camp jacket. in winter i go with a 11' DIY hammock (no net). i just picked one up from Syb on here for $50. 15oz. less then the HH.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
