The Switchback LightHiker was designed with the weight-conscious hiker in mind. This net less model weighs a mere 17 oz., so you’ll hardly notice it as you hike.
The body is made from top quality 1.1 oz. sq. yd. ripstop nylon with a DWR finish. Each end of the Switchback body has a channel sewn in, and is triple stitched for strength & durability. The Liner is also sewn into the channel.
The Switchback 1.1 includes a comfortable taffeta liner and a pocket for a pad of your choice (CC foam, self inflating, or down air mattress). The pocket can also be used for storing a jacket or fleece for quick access.
The Switchback includes (2) 10″ x 12″ storage bags made from noseeum. The bags are conveniently located so that they are in the same place regardless of which end your head is at. The bags can hold a water bottle, flashlight, books, etc. Also included are (2) sewn-in D rings for the attachment of a pillow or clothes bag.
Tie Out Points
There are four tie out points strategically placed to maximize interior space. The tie out points at the L shoulder & R ankle accentuate the diagonal lay and the other two will open up the hammock completely. They also act as anchor points for the PolarPod, ensuring perfect placement every time. They also work with many underquilts on the market today. The tie out points are also used when the hammock is set up in “ground mode”.

We highly recommend Tree to Tree’s Ring Buckle Assembly & Tree Straps. The Ring Buckle Assembly was designed for their hammocks, cinching the channel ends perfectly and providing strength & durability. It also functions as end anchor points when set up in “ground mode”. These Tree Straps are a perfect compliment to the Ring Buckles and are available in three different lengths.
