Hammocks
« on: November 18, 2013, 11:43:49 AM »
I use an eno double nest with the guardian bug net and love it.
last time out i got a little rain so i strung a 1 dollar hammock at an angle and it covered perfectly.


I wish i had spent the extra 5 bucks and got the pro straps instead of the slap straps. more footman loops in the pro.

If its strong enough to hold Oscar and Sam at the same time, I'd say it's pretty much good for anyone.  :peep:

Don't try to skate around my awesome joke above. It haunts you. I know it.

Is it tied around the roll bar through your window, Oscar? It looks like that's what you've done. I always figured I would tie one to my stinger (after I figured out a way to keep the strap from sliding down either side of it). I don't have a hammock, but I've wanted one for a while now.

Why do you use the double, and not the single? Just more room?

Its around the roll bar. I bought the double because I'm 6'3 220. Reviews online said it would work better

Cool. One day I'll get serious about getting one. I'm sure I'll have some questions when that day comes around.

the atlas straps are like having gold! they are longer and dont stretch during the night. they also are stronger webbing and have a loop every inch so there are no awkward distances. A cheap tarp tied in a "A" shape over the hammock also works great for rain. I would like to buy the kelty rain shade my self but way to much when a tarp does just as well. how much was your bug net?

you can tie it to the roll bar or the door jam.

I realized I'd forgotten to post in here. I broke down and bought a Warbonnet Blackbird hammock back during their Black Friday sale. I got a 1.1 double layer, so I could use a pad between the layers for warm when necessary (and not have the pad move around on me). With the lousy weather this winter, I've only had it out once to mess with it. I'm hoping to start hanging it more often to get some practice with it. Overall, I like it. I did change out the suspension to whoopie slings, as they were fairly inexpensive, and much lighter. I do have some Atlas straps I bought for it, but haven't used them yet.

Never heard of that brand before. Just looked it up and man that thing is nice! Love the tie ups on the side so that u can open the hammock up while laying and the pad sounds very handy! Never heard of whoopie straps. What exactly are those. I replaced my rope one the ends of the hammock with paracord. Packs easier, stronger, and lighter on long hikes

Whoopie slings are just another type of suspension. They are made of Amsteel, normally, and have a breaking strength well within safe range for this application.

I think I paid about $20 for the pair. I got two different colored ones so I could distinguish between the head end and foot end, as they are different for my hammock.

If you want to blow your mind about hammocks, check out http://www.hammockforums.net

Here's a pic of a whoopie sling with the parts labeled.
