6415Speer Hammock Design
- Aug 2, 2004Ed,
Just a quick question about the Velcro set up on your hammocks.
Would it be possible to alternate the Velcro type on the hammock or
the pea pod so that the pod seals to both sides of the hammock when
it is not fully sealed up?
While in Yellowstone, I ran into very hardy mosquitoes, so while the
nights were certainly cold enough to warrant the pea pod, the bug
netting was still necessary. I tried to have the bug netting attach
to about half the Velcro strip on the hammock, and then have the pea
pod use the other half. However, only one side of the pod matched
up with the hammock, so it was very drafty if the wind was blowing
the wrong way, and always noticeably colder on one half of the body.
Other than the one mild irritation, the entire system worked
wonders. Yellowstone was definitely some of the worst weather I've
used the hammock in, and while all of the tents around me were
bailing water and wringing out sleeping bags from the monsoon, I was
staying dry and enjoying the spectacular storm. Several people were
eyeing up the rig, so hopefully you will have some additional
business coming your way.
