    My warbonnet blackbird XLC and superfly tarp still going strong. We had to clear out a space to set up hammocks on this trip.

    Here's my hootch that I've used since last October. Grand Trunk Kryptek Hammock, Dutchware TI Cinch Buckle Kevlar Suspension Straps w/ Sewn in TI Dutch Hooks, Duthware Xenon Hex Tarp, JacksRBetter Mt. Washington 3 Under Quilt and JacksRBetter High Sierra Sniveller (long) Top Quilt.

    This was taken last weekend (May 17-20, 2019) at the First Cascadia Regional GTG on the Wild and Scenic Collawash River, in the Mt.Hood NF.

    Here's the Blackbird XLC (original model) that I used to use, but seeing this thread resurrected reminded me that I have no pictures of my Bonefire Gear Whisper, which the hammock I use these days. Instead of the UQ like in the photo, the Bonefire hammy has the insulation sewn in which makes for zero adjustments, it just works.

    That said, the XLC is still amazing, it just gets used less often and not in my yard like this anymore.

    Eno SingleNest with bug net, upgraded straps (I forgot the name but they are the stronger ones made by Eno) and Aquaquest 10x10 Defender tarp. I've only used it once so far just the other night and so far I am happy with it.

    DD Frontline Hammock (going to be replacing the straps with whoope slings). Also have a 10x10 AquaQuest Guide tarp that I can use with it if need be. (no I don't usually wear shoes in the hammock)

    Got out and did a 3 Day hammock with some freinds!
    Desert Oasis of Havasupai, so no UQ or tarp, but I highly recommend the underbelly (sidebelly in my case) hammock! It was amazing, and I had an excellent time.

    Was able to pull water right from the campsite, clean and clear.

    *Fun Fact, bought the UL Sea to Summit and Bug on here!

    This was my bed for 6 nights last week at Owasippe Scout Reservation in Michigan. I run a pretty up-scale setup, LOL. DIY tablecloth hammock with Harbor Freight cam-buckle strap (buckles removed, of course) suspension tied with a lark's head directly to the hammock. Fronky-style Bugnet made from $1.45/yd tulle from Joann Fabric. (No cinch on the bottom because I couldn't find any shock cord locally the day before camp, when I made that one and 2 others for my boys) $3.00 poly tarp. It kept me warm and dry and bug-free all week, and I woke up every day feeling better than when I sleep in my bed.

    8 of the 18 scouts we took to camp also slept in hammocks all week. It was a blast.

    His original name is French knot, an evolution from the knot the Machard named from is inventor Serge Machard a French climber, it is an unidirectional knot well known in climbing.

    The original Machard :


    For finishing the knot the carabiner must be tight against the rope
