    Smile 1.7 sl bb arrived!

    ok guys i just got my first hammock and my first bb i almost ran down the mail man i think i scared him a little running for him!!! i got it and set it up on my front porch attatched to 4x4 post and i forgot to order caribeaners so i grabbed some cheapie ones i picked up at lowes they are stamped 150 lbs each but they worked for now. i got it adjusted in a couple trys and just fell asleep for a few i did notwant to get up! i looked over the desighn and details of this hammock and i am very impressed it was worth the wait i am very very happy and i hope my wife can sleep without me tonight

    let me ask others how these do in hot summer i was hoping this sl would be coolin the texas heat? do you line it with a sheet or any tips for heat? pad or no pad in summer?

    You will need some kind of insulation under you even during the summer months. A pad works. I have used a synthetic sleeping bag down to the mid 50s and been ok, but bags are different and some people sleep colder than others. They are great all around hammock systems. I'm sure you will love it.

    Be careful with those biners. You might want to hang pretty low just in case something goes wrong.

    I can't wait to get mine... The wife already gave me permission to hang it in our room

    Wonder how long she will let me sleep in it instead of our bed...

    that's too much of a risk. if your wife is letting you hang in your room, you can't do anything that might jeopardize it.

    thinking of buying a warbonnett black mamba top quilt. any one have any experience with these. i love the quality of my hammock and i would imagine the same quality as the hammock curious how happy others are with the material the loft should i get the extra down a few ounces? i am only 5'10 tall but i was thinking of getting the long for the width because i am a stocky fellow! opinions?
