5246Snake Skins for a Speer?
- Apr 1, 2004I have snake skins for my HH and they work great. I know some of you
have made some for your Speer hammock. Are they worth it?
On the HH it's all-in-one design makes the snakes skins really great
-- your whole setup is nice and dry in a tube.
But on a Speer, the seperate tarp and bugnet makes the snake skins not
as useful -- you pack up the hammock while under the tarp, put the
bugnet away and take down the tarp last.
I know they can help keep the straps dry, but that doesn't seem like
enough upside to be worth the effort.
P.S. I now have a double bottom hammock and a 5' x 10' tarp done. All
I have to do now is the travel pod and the synth blanket to go under
it. The tarp turned out great. The 1.1 oz ripstop that thru-hiker has
is really confortable for the hammock body, too.
