I just got my order from Strapworks (1.5"x30' polyester straps) and 4 yards OD green ripstop nylon (from Denver Fabrics). That was fast. I just order them on Sunday.
Now I am waiting for the bias tape to arrive and I will begin my DIY hammock.
I have been pondering over something whilst waiting for my orders to arrive....
What is everyones preference as far as bug nuts go? Attached or detached?
If I were to attach mine It would put a long zipper in the shape of a "U" that would be sewn to the hammock at the bottom and then extend almost the entire length. The ends would turn up and go over my ridgeline and just touch the other side of the hammock.

Lets here what you think.
