  • Good afternoon, I cut my ridge line about 15 inches from the foot end, in order to center the cut over the entrance. I tied a knot in each end of the "cut" to form a loop in each end of the ridge line. I use a small Wal-Mart carabiner to connect the two loops. I leave the ridge line connected when hanging the hammock., then disconnect afterwards I have an Explorer Ultralite and...

  • > Good morning, By detaching the ridgeline the HH can be used as and "open-faced" hammock without having to enter. A pad can be inserted between the netting and body of the hammock, and then one can lay on top of the hammock and the pad is held in place. It is also less restricting when used as a chair/lounger.

I always "hang" the hammock with the ridge-line connected, so it is under tension and there is no chance for the ridge-line to disconnect by accident. However, there is not so much...

  • Good afternoon, I have made that modification to my HH. I cut the ridge-line above the entry-slit. I put a loop in each end and connected the the two ends with a small caribenier so that the HH can be set up with the ridge-line intact and the ridge-line later disengaged. I have experimented with the HH (ridgel-ine dis-engaged) both right side up and bottom up with no apparent...

  • Hello Scott, I have been using the insulated air core in my HH for about a year now. I find that the pad, by itself is comfortable down to about 40 to 45 degrees. I sleep directly on the pad, using my WM Megalite as a quilt. I carry a piece of 20 inch by 30 inch closed cell foam to use under my hips and shoulders for lower temps. I have found that the pad deflates some during the...

  • Good evening, I researched the BA Horse Thief before buying a WM bag. I believe I have seen a picture depicting, as well as read, that the pillow sleeve goes on the outside. I am not quiet sure about this. Hope this info helps Repeat/Jackie

  • I posted the link to my most recent AT section hike at Kampfire, but there are a couple nice hammock pictures in the journal. I slept each night in the hammock (exception - night at the Kincora Hostel) and had a great trip. I especially like the picture of the hammock at the edge of the drop-off at the Vandeventer Shelter: http://www.imrisk.com/atdamascus/atdamascus.htm Rick

  • David, by elevating the feet, the blood flow to the cranium is increased, in proportion to the amount of elevation. This can lead to some increase in intracranial pressure. Other physiologic conditions could also come into play, such as electrolyte levels which can be abnormal after long days on the trail. In my case a contributing factor is the decrease in my caffeine intake...

  • I have experienced vascular headaches twice as a result of sleeping with my feet too much higher than my head in the hammock. The last time the pain was so bad it woke me up at 5 A.M. and I was too nauseated to eat for a couple of hours.
