    Pictures of the Condor

    O.K. I finished my first night in the new Condor and I have to say I slept like a baby. This thing is huge and the sweet spot seems to be where ever you lay. I did not even need or use a pillow last night as my sleep angle without it was perfect. I was able to lay right to left, left to right and 3/4 on my side - I usually am a back sleeper. I am sure you could go full side no problem. The topcover even in the basement adds warmth. My house goes down to 60 degrees at night so the basement will be around 55. Slept warm and cozy but found out that my New River does not quite fit the hammock. Will be in need of a new UQ -maybe a DIY project!!

    Here are some picture I hope they are good enough. I only have my phone, no camera.

    This will be my bed every weekend till I can get out in the woods. It was super easy to set up and I have the foot end slightly higher than the head but not as much I as do with my WBBB.

    Well here are the Pics:

    It is terrific that Papa Smurf is filling this niche of custom jungle hammocks. I don't think Clark promotes or will do such custom work. But does use separate zipper tracks for bugnet and weathershield. And #5 zippers, both of which come with a cost of added weight. So, you're not odd in going with that pair of reliability up-grades.

    I didn't see from the pics: Is the weather-shield a zipped-over cover for the bug net, or can they truly be independently deployed? Clark does it both ways, depending on the model.

    Kinda hard to see from the pics but you can use the topcover and the bugnet independently or both at the same time whick ever you prefer. I can also unzip both (they still remain attached to the hammock) and store them in a captured bag made out of the end of the netting, remove the ridgeline and go with a completely open top off model.

    Again Papa does excellent custom work!!!!
