Clark owners seem to like the pockets on the NX series.
Has anyone out there made a hammock with pockets attached to bottom?
I have no hammock-making experience (or sewing experience) but I wonder two things:
- Would sewing anything into the bottom of the hammock affect the lay, be uncomfortable, or particularly susceptible to thread ripping out as fabric stretched, etc...
- If this were a double-layer hammock design, what complications would adding these pockets to the outer layer create. I'd guess that if the pockets were loaded up, they'd sag away from the inner layer when the hammock were empty, but would snug up once hammock were loaded with a person.
I don't know if I'll ever get to/be able to build it, but a double-layer hammock that allows the option of an "inner" pad, with some Clark attributes like underside pockets and a weather shield system of some kind, is an attractive plan for me (all in camo, of course ).
The most daunting task is the zipper work...but unrelated to the two questions above...
