My first test hammock was $1 bin polyester about the color but a little heavier than the material used to make the Boy Scout uniform in th 70's.

I made it double bottom for "security" reasons and it has held up well through some naps and 2 nights.

I found some blue nylon oxford in the $1 bin at lunch today and will use it to make test hammock #2. I do not know what weight it is but not quite as heavy as packcloth.

Do you think my 250# would be secure with single bottom?

It is only a test hammock but am hoping to use it on a 2 night canoe trip in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for any input.
