    Thumbs up

    I'm just gonna say "Ditto, ditto, and DITTO." I was ready to get rid of my HH. No longer. Great work, quick service, just all-round satisfaction.

    I've seen that ... drooled over it ... but had to pass on it for other toys

    Love to hear how you like it. I've read great things about it. I got the star map program for my iPhone which helps for id'ing that bright spot that captures my attention occasionally. Nothing like the capabilites of the Skyscout.

    I plan on this mod over the winter. I have also thought about removing/sew the velcro slit closed. Has anyone ADDED any material, say a 2"-3" strip, where the velcro was to help get rid of that left calf pressure point???

    I've not ... either make that modification or had the issue with calf pressure.

    Glad I've not ... I'd hate to loose the bottom slit opening.

    I don't know if that would work. The problem went away for me by shortening the ridgeline.

    Here's how I shortened it without cutting it.

    I sent mine last week and plan to do a section of the AT the second week of October. I can't wait!

    Well, my "new" hammock arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased. Echoing everyone elses praises is about all I can do. Exceptional quality of work, super easy to work with and open communication throughout the process.

    I'm doing a section of the AT next weekend so I'll post a report on the before and after use of the HH when I return.

    Happy hanging and thanks a ton to 2Q's and ZQ!

    Man, just got mine back today, what a turn around! And.. as you probably guessed, the work is amazing. Man my hammock hasn't been rolled up so neatly since I got it.

    Thanks for the great job and the terrific service!

    I recently got mine back as well. I figured I would jump into the top thread praising the mod quality and give a big +1
