    Oops. The deadly combo of a late-night bottle of wine, hammock forums and a credit card have struck again. Good thing is I no longer have to worry about fitting an 11-foot hammock with a 110"...

    It works for me and I'm not really fond of zippers. The walmart sheers come in black. The material is bulkier and somewhat heavier than RBTR but it is really tough. At less than $15 for the netting,...

    No. I bought the Trunktech for lounging in a local retail store more-or-less spontaneously prior to a multi-day raft trip. I ended up sleeping in it with a pad and had the best "camping" sleep in...

    1.5 spider works great with marlin spike, simple and sold, haven't used a beckett. It does tend to want to bunch up at knots and takes a second or two to flatten after use. It is no problem in the...
