How to install the Speer PeaPod


Installing the PeaPod is as easy as tying your shoes! 

Note: If using a hammock with a bug net zippered on both sides, it should be fully un-zipped & tied up out of the way

Step 1. Wrap the end of the PeaPod (PP) around one end of the hammock and attach the first 6" of the hook & loop.

Step 2. Cinch down the draw cord most of the way with the cord locks and  let the end of your hammock stick out a inch or two.

Steps 3 & 4. Repeat on the other end ensuring the PP doesn't hit the ground.

Step 5. Get in the hammock and place your hand between the hammock & PP under your butt. The PP should be lightly snug (never tight). If the gap is too big you can adjust by sliding the end of the PP toward the end of the hammock and cinhing down the cord locks Re-check the fit and adjust as required. If the PP is too tight , loosen the cord locks a little, allowing the PP to slide over and expose another inch or two of the end of the hammock. Re-cinch the cord locks. Re-check the fit and adjust as required. When you are happy with the fit, tie off the draw cords to your suspension at the end of the hammock.

Adjusting the down: Once you have the PP where you want it, it is advisable to check the down distribution as the down will tend to migrate towards the ends when stuffing into the stuff sack. Simply place one hand inside & one outside the PP at one end and scoot most of the down towards the center for the first 12" to 18" or so, working your way around the end of the PP. Repeat on the other end.

Note: To make installation easier, always stuff the PP into the stuff sack starting at one end & ending at the other, making sure the draw cords are at the top & bottom of the bag.
