I did the first test hang with my first DIY hammock
it is double layer..
outter layer is unknown walmart olive nylon
inside layer is silver/gray walmart ripstop
I used chain link & buckles from Paul @ AE
and some straps I have laying around
from when I strapped my canoe to the car
my only problem is I don't think it is as long as I wanted it
I need to go out & measure while it's hanging
it is very comfortable!
being 5' 3" and 112lbs guess I can get away with a shorter hammock then I anticipated
since I took this pic I added a lightweight sleeping pad inbetween the layers
I plan to add a ridge line, side tieouts & bugnet like this
so far so good - I am happy for someone who really never sewed before
PS. the pic above is my front yard.
When I really want to go camping I could go out back
