Thanks for setting the record straight. I read through all the pages
in the Hennessey Hammock website a few years ago, but did not go back

opens from bottom to top.
It's these snags with zippers that gives me second thoughts about

did try zippers in the prototype Safari models. (I tested one.) They
had a complex system of rings and strings to open and close the
zipper. Tom decided to discontinue that idea. Zippers break and are
not truly field repairable. Field repairs are why I prefer buttons
over snaps and zippers, btw.
