Today the results that ive been looking for developed right before my eyes.
After swearing that I would never sleep in a gathered end hammock again,because of the calf bite problem,Risk posted a picture of his d i y hammock that got me drooling over the weight of his little nest.
Then catavarie posted a thread about the shorter hammocks being right for him,just about the time I recieved a package from d i y gear.
The short of it is after sewing all night Iam now a proud owner of a 1.9 single that fits me like a glove,it only has a 7 foot 5 inch ridge line. Who would have thought you could get all of me in such a little space ,with so much comfort.
A big thanks to Risk and catavarie for the posts,keep up the good work guys, you saved me alot of pack weight.
