I've been playing around with my DIY DL hammock. One of the main benefits I've found is that I can place a pad between the layers and have it remain in place much better than putting a pad in the hammock. I also get to avoid laying directly on the hammock.
On that note, I was wondering if anyone has tried running a few pieces of shock cord under a single layer hammock to hold a pad in place? It seems like that would remove the weight penalty of a second layer while retaining the benefit of holding a pad in place.
I've got a Travel hammock ATTH with several tie-outs for when it is used as a tarp. I was thinking about trying it, but I thought I'd see if anyone has been down this road already. If not, any suggestions or thoughts on what the shortcomings might be would also help.
It seems like this would be good for a GG wide pad or even stacking pads without an SPE.
