- PD can be used without the Easton Aluminum tube hoops, but the hoops add more options and simplify set up and modifications
- By folding into layers the PD can be an effective cover blanket in a hammock down into the 30 F range
- Cordage Options
- None means you supply your own cordage. 20 Footers work well. Six tie outs around base is best.
- 9 Parachute Cords is 9-20 foot hanks of parachute cord. This is generally enough to provide overhead line and vertical line to PD, plus 6 lines to tie out the base.
- 3 Parachute/6 #24 Bank line is for three hanks parachute cord for the overhead and the Bank lines for the base tie out.
- Easton Aluminum Tubing Hoops consists of one large hoop divided into two sections. The hoops are shock corded for ease of use. Although I used the PD for a year without the hoops, I find they are invaluable for ease of setup and adjustments, two or three lines at the base is usually enough to secure it.
