BAT HAMMOCK INFORMATION
SINGLE POINT HAMMOCK OPTION
|Click Images to Enlarge|
It is easy to get
into the hammock by sitting at the open end below your feet, and then
rolling back and into the the hammock. Then you can easily adjust your
position fore and aft to find the best balancing point for sleeping. The
hammock comes with "horizontal" and "longitudinal" spreaders to hold the hammock open and
create a stable sleeping platform. These are not necessary, and some people
may wish not to use them for a lighter Bat Hammock option. We have
purposely not put adjustments on the vertical webbing, because this could be
a weak point. Instead, you are free to use and ring and carabineer to
shorten the vertical webs near your head, to incline your body into more of
a sitting position (depending on how much you shorten the 2 vertical webs
nearest your head). Materials: The Bat Hammock is made with Nylon
420D and reinforced with 2 layers of ES Polyspun Polyester 450 (yarncount
150x30) coated with Breatex to keep it waterproof but breathable and
straps are 1.25" Nylon, and the Cone Rain Fly is Ripstop Nylon. Color:
with black straps (we do not make blue color. Our sample only). Cone
Rain Fly is Dark Olive Green. Cone Net is dark color, so it is easy to
see out. Dimensions: 7' long x 8' high (including the 1 meter straps) to a single attach loop. (packed: 20cm x 20cm x 10cm).
Weight (with spreader poles): 2.2kg. (5.5lbs).

FLY & CONE NET
We have designed a custom Cone Rain Fly for the Bat Hammock. The Carabineer loop for the Bat Hammock slides through the top of the Cone Fly with the Cone Fly Loop holding the fly in position above the hammock. The fly extends down 15" (35cm) past the bottom of the Bat Hammock with a draw string at the base of the fly to close the fly beneath the hammock for windy wet conditions. The hole at the top of the hammock is very small, but it may be a good idea to take a small plastic bag to clip the carbineer through, and then to pull over the top of the rain fly, to seal this hole for extreme rain conditions "on the edge." The dimensions of the rain fly are 265cm tall x 330cm base (8' tall x 12' circumference at the base).
We also now have a Cone Net for the Bat Hammock. It is exactly the same idea as the Cone Fly, but it a mosquito net for keeping out the bugs.
We look forward to seeing your photos of your Bat Hammock in action. If you have any questions, please email me -- TOM CLAYTOR
