    RR Double Layer

    I received my ridge runner today! Only, it wasn't what I ordered. I had initially gotten in touch w/ Warbonnetguy about a blem'd double layer as it was really on sale. Then the black friday sale came online and I sent an email opting for a single layer. Fast forward to today and the hammock is here! After some poking around, I noticed it had an extra slip of fabric under it. Hark? A double layer? Surely not. But it was, so oh well. I can't tell if it's the original blem I ordered or not, but I'm happy with it! It's well made for sure. As for weight, it's a little heavy, but lighter than I had expected. With the adjustable webbing susp, poles in the stuff sack it weighs 35.8oz, that's also some condensation from the humidity on it as well. Like the bottom of it makes my hand wet when I run it along the fabric. The cloud burst tarp weighs 17.5oz in the stuff sack. I ordered 100ft of zing it as well as a dutch hook and a dutch fly to make a continuous ridge line in accordance with the video that Dejoha posted. The other 70 feet of line are for the tie outs on the tarp. I will also be using the Titanium stakes I ordered off here to stake the tarp down. After I receive my dutch gear I'll take a weekend trip and post a report. I don't have an UQ yet, but since I ended up with a DL, I can use my big agnes air core and the hot spot I ordered from REI as insulation. Here are a couple of hasty, and consequently terrible pictures I took when I first hung it this morning.

    No such thing as a "terrible picture" of a hammock.

    By the way, did you have a snooze? How did it feel?

    No snooze yet, but I did lay down for a while and almost fell asleep. It is very comfortable. Planning on sleeping in it tonight. My wife loves it too.

    It sure does! It's not nearly as tippy as I was expecting.

    I'm thrilled, truly thrilled. I'll be getting an underquilt next month. I think I'm getting a gossamer gear pad to use for now, so I might go with a lighter UQ so I can use the pad as a back support for my pack, a sit pad and an under pad to supplement the lighter quilt.

    When I first got mine, it was still warm out. I always put the extra 4 inch spreader bar in the head end because it opened up the shoulder room and provided more air circulation, thus keeping me cooler.

    The reverse is now true in the winter, I leave the extra header bar out when its cold. It feels like more of a cocoon feeling, giving me more of a warm feeling because of less air circulation. Nice to have that option.
