Re: [Hammock Camping] Permethrin- was Hammock Camping] Mosquito protection (bag and/or liner) question
- If you are using an ag formula on clothing, that use would have to be listed on the label, if not you are using the pesticide illegally. BMD

If, in this case, there is a product specifically formulated for use
on clothing, that would be my first choice.
I'm also concerned whether the ag formultions would play nice with the
not-inexpensive high-tech fabrics that I, and most of you, wear in the
outdoors. I want to retain the breathability and integrity of the
materials. But, as always, each of us has to make that call on our own :)

Doesn't hurt to have em out east either. I carry extra straps along
with the HH because sometimes the spot you'd really like to use
requires the extra rigging. Normally though it's better to avoid
larger trees because of deadfall risks.
When my brother and I went to Big South Fork a few weeks back, the
only hammock spot I could find down by the river had an 4ft. dia.
windthrown tree near a smaller one. All the other options were
crawling with poison ivy. So I tied the two straps together and
wrapped em around the prostrate tree as many times as I could, tying
off back to the line. The other side had the usual HH strap. It
worked. Without the extra strapping I would have been forced to go
partway up the bluff face to find something useable.
Yea, let's see that car hammock of yours. :-)
