    That's awesome. I had a chance to try the Flex on at the Clark store in SLC and it was great. My only reservation is the massive amount of Velcro underneath didn't seem like a polished insulation strategy. I kinda like the idea of returning to a pad like the massive Exped ones.

    On picture nr. 7 in the original post of this thread. My keen eagle eyes spot what looks like an UQ. What brand, if not DIY, is that?

    Keith, thanks for the suspension ideas. I ordered a JRB spreader bar before the Flex even arrived. I've placed an order for 3 whoopies and tree straps from Arrowhead Equip- should arrive Thursday. My initial impressions are 1)This thing is huge (fog horn blowing in background) 2) It is well made and should out last me 3) Definitely a car camping hammock, unless a backpacking buddy can split the load by taking the tarp, poles, and spreader bar for a shared hammock set up.

    Hi Keith, my hubby is looking at the Flex 180 and came across your thread. He is curious to know what your height and weight is to give him some perspective as he looks at the pictures, if you wouldn't mind sharing. He is also interested in shoulder width. Do you feel like you have plenty of shoulder space? He is trying to decide if this might be a good hammock option for him. He is 6'6" and about 260 lbs and has really wide shoulders.
    With a radical sense of hope, I strive for the seemingly impossible.
