I have done tests with 3 stuff sacks, & taking off the RayWay Quilt & putting it in a separate stuff sack takes about 1 - 1.5 minute & the hammock still takes about 1.5 min. The thing that makes me like my way is not saving the 0.5 minute packing time, it's the set up speed I'm after: Literally under a minute using the BBB. I don't have to rig the UQ every time. It's always in place. Step by step: tie on head end tree hugger (W Dutch clip) 5 seconds, walk to other tree 10 seconds, tie on foot end tree hugger 5 seconds, hook on WhoOpie sling, walk to other end hook on WhoOpie, adjust head end walk to foot & adjust that: 20 seconds. Total time (Not counting tarp) 40 seconds. Putting in & opening No Sniv adds another 10 - 20 seconds & I am home. The tarp (Yet another story) is about a 3 minute rig.
I have no idea how long it would take to put on / take off the BBO & the 1X each time. I don't care, they are staying as they are.
So, if I am about to be POUNDED by a thunderstorm, & as long as I do not hurry, I can be up in 5 minutes or less. With 90% of the hammock set up being under cover.
Next video I'll show all components & set up then take down.
The BBB is homemade by me and has seen hundreds of uses. I need to replace it, but don't have the heart to retire it.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
