    Traveler?

    Has anyone tested it? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

    Yes indeed.

    My Traveler is a simple and lightweight double layer gathered end hammock. The two layers are sewn together around the perimeter, excepting a YKK zipper along one edge allowing access to the space between the layers to place a pad or vapor barrier. It is available in single-layered model as well, but I don't see a downside to multi-layers.

    The dimensions are well chosen, and I find it to be exceptionally comfortable. I've used it successfully with a whole range of quilts/pods/socks/covers and it works fine with all I've tried. It is uncomplicated, and versatile. On top of that, it's made by a cottage gear builder right here in the U.S.

    For use anytime that bugs aren't a problem, it's my very favorite hammock. I guess I'm a fan of it's simplicity.

    Really starting to favour simple hammocks. But what about bugs? Have you tried it with the bug net that Brandon sells?

    No, I haven't. I have other netted hammocks that I use when I know that insects will be around. I would like to see a thorough review of his bugnet, though.

    I agree with Angrysparrow about the Traveler. I spent two nights camping this weekend, and happened to have my Hennessy ULBP and Traveler in the car. I thought I would have bug troubles with the warmer weather, so I used the Hennessy. After I realized that the bugs weren't out, I spent the second night in the traveler. I really dread the warmer weather, as I don't like messing with netting, complications, and claustrophobic hammocks.

    Special shape?

    Is the traveler an asym shape or anything other than a gathered end hammock? I have been wondering for quite some time...

    just a double layered end gathered hammock with a 4' zipper to open and insert the pad, available in single layer as well

    If I remember right, you had a special way of gathering the ends that resulted in a big ball where the whipping is. I think there was a cord running through it like a channel, but it seemed to pull into a different shape than the ATHH does, which is also a channel with a cord through it.

    Do you still use this method?

    yes, it's whipped just like the bb
