For less than material cost I figured I'd try a light hammock. Yet to see how useful I find it.

the suspension on that one is kinda goofy, just knotted ropes and steel hooks (but many hammocks' suspension is goofy in stock mode)
it will work for a recreational hammock. dont expect that one to convert you.. like the Blackbird
i may get one of these for my wife. thanks for the heads up!
fwiw, the manly term for pink is "light red"

What sort of suspension change do you suggest?

re:fwiw, wait 'til I hang it under the MSR E-wing. If it clashes in total darkness it must be manly.

i switched out the rope/hook nonsense with some 1" polypro webbing from strapworks. on the hammock side, run doubled-up amsteel blue thru the channel and then a prusik around either cinch buckles from onrope1.com or ring buckles made by SMC (check REI for stock, they are rappel rings)
after that $12 in mods, it made a great hammock. still have mine!
