the hammock support, which necessarily folds the webbing in half, at
least. Depending on how much I tighten it, that hitch can squeeze the
webbing even further.
Patrick's KAQ uses a prussik, which has the same effect. A PeaPod is
supported by the end of the hammock and doesn't really squeeze the
webbing with its weight.
However, I don't use underquilts every time, so I'm not sure if the
webbing folds are a matter of memory from when I DO use underquilts,
or if it's caused just by the kind of loading a hammock subjects it to.
