I am currently using a bridge made based on Grizz's videos and have also made a primaloft underquilt for it. I decided to taper the width at the foot end of my current hammock which made the midsection a bit on the skinny side, so I've been wanting to make another for a while. After using my setup a few times, I'd like to be able to set up camp a little quicker and have seen where some of you have integrated insulation with the hammock body so its ready to go once the hammock is hung.
I'm wanting to stick with the Primaloft since I'm familiar with it and am happy with my current loft/warmth. I've been thinking for several days now how to account for the stretch of the nylon body so I don't compress the outer shell. I'm thinking of making the hammock body first and rolling wide bias tape that will protrude out of the rolled hem that I can later attach the quilt to. In doing this, I can get the hammock to where I can take measurements, lay in it and let it stretch and let someone take the measurements of the stretched hammock. Then I can attach the Primaloft to the outer shell cut to the size of the stretched hammock plus allowance for loft and seam. after that I will simply attach this to the bias tape(good sides together with PL out) and then turn it inside out. After that attach the endcaps to neatly close off the head and foot ends. Another thing I was thinking was to do the quilting loops only on the outer shell before assembly that way I wouldn't have any knots or threads to snag from inside the hammock.
I'm looking to see if any of you have any suggustions on a better method or any reasons this may not work.
