    Sure seems like this thing would be 'cold' to sleep in given how high the tarp is off the ground. I know it can be lowered, but then how do you get in given the tree sides are so low? Love the outside of the box thinking - integrated bug-net to tarp, gear hammock, double decker capabilities, etc.

    I'm not in the market for a new hammock or tarp right now (very happy with my bridge system!) But I have to say, I've been really impressed with the Nub'e website, how the owners have represented themselves, etc etc---definitely a class act! (and I love the idea of helping local people support themselves!) So, just wanted to say "good luck guys and keep up the good work!" (really is a clever design!)
