Re: poncho as under cover
I think the side shock cord is important. It helps shape the cover and make a much more effective seal. With a simple non-asym hammock, it can come over the top edge, making an excellent wind shiel...

Re: Staff too short?
Yeah, it's too short. Your forearm should be about level in that pose. I'm 5'10" and my single staff is set at 49" from tip to strap mounting. For downhill travel a little lon...
