to get a pad or sleeping bag into it. I have a single which I take
along when dayhiking. I removed the stock metal tie-offs and
replaced them with lightweight carabiners. They weigh the same but
are stronger and have a larger/better ends to tie webbing straps onto.
For testing puropses you don't have to sew anything--just drape your
bug netting over the hammock from a ridgeline like a few people here
have done. That way, if you don't like the hammock you can sell it
