    New Trail Lair

    I ordered a new 11' hammock from Jared for my backpacking trips. I wanted it lightweight but also modular for all season camping. After canvassing the forum for some fabric opinions, I chose to go with the 1.2 MTN XL cut down to a finished width of 62". Very happy with the finished product, weight and the comfortable lay. He had it done and shipped in under a week despite the special order fabric. Some pics below from my back yard test hang. Looking forward to using this out on the trail.

    Thanks. It’s a tick over 16oz with the windshield removed. And ~20oz with it zipped in for winter mode. I know some of the ultralight fabrics or netless could have gotten me lighter, but I like the added durability of the MTN material and the convenience of the integrated bug net.

    Nice purchase! I love the orange stitching.

    If I can see right in the pics, it looks like you got the gear pouch and head end shelf? I love that shelf... well and the hammock in general

    Thanks - the orange thread does seem to contrast well with the olive nylon. No gear pouch, but I did get Jared to make me a detachable peak shelf for the head end. That’s included in the 16oz weight. My pillow was laying in the hammock so that might look like a gear bag.

    That looks great, Andy! I really like the colors and the weight. I am looking forward to checking it out in person.

    Great looking hammock! I recently ordered a couple of Trail Lairs to replace some older hammocks. You are definitely going to enjoy your new hammock!
