    2. Yeah, i have discover is the only comfortable way that i sleep in a gathered end hammock also i have a D shaped sag with a fixed structural ridgeline for the consistency sag, i used to be a tent camper, sleep with a cheap walmart blue pad but i only do it because i didn't know any better. i was trying to minimize size and weight but sometimes when the money is running short cheap stuff is kinda heavy. so getting into hammocks really make my gear shave pounds and volume considerably... now in just at 3 pounds for the hammock, tarp, straps, rope and my DIY bugnet.

    3. Man that is awesome! What does your average pack weight look like?
      To be honest, I'm very much a hammock newbie which you will probably notice with the next overnight adventure. ;)

  3. I'm not an expert ;-), but i do my homework and investigating all about hammocks, for get started on hammocks i recommend you to see this series of videos... The crazy, crazy man is called Sean "Shuge" Emery is a hammock forums member, after seen those videos i really wanted to get into hammocks. Better be prepared to be uncountable in a cold night. :)
