This item came in this week and I have been playing around with it. First let me say that it is very well made and has a number of useful applications for which it can be used.
Seeing how the "gear hammock" application attaches both at the head (plenty strong) and the edge of the Hennessey hammock bungee tie out point (probably weak); I wondered how the weight transfer would take place if you...say put a 30 pack into it? It seems to me that at best it would be a 50-50 split...at worst more of the weight would be on the tie out...and it would tear and/or pull out.
Has anyone played around with the gear hammock using a scale to see where the weight transfer takes place?
If I had access to a couple of fishing scales, I would do the experiment myself...but unfortunately, I do not.
