Did you have any condensation trouble with the CF hammock?
yes. I would not want to use this in warm weather. Hence the long break between my last use and when I finally took it back out this last weekend. I wanted it to be cooler before I used it.
I'm pretty convinced that CF is a cool fabric, exceptional for tarps and OK for stuff sacks. But it is not a good fabric for hammocks. Besides breaking for unexplained reasons, it doesn't stretch one iota so it is hard to get comfortable in, it is expensive, and it doesn't breath well which may be OK for some folks wanting to to also serve as a wind block.
The CF I have samples of here are not of fabric. They're samples of dyneema reinforced film.
You could save a few more grams by tossing the woopie slings and using a single line of amsteel.and a knot.
There are fabrics of ultra high strength fibers: think kevlar (tm) and other aramid anti-blast and anti-penetration vests and other garments and air-bags. When used in gloves to protect those working with knives, weight is not an issue.
I pointed out the cuben that is a film because if you think of it as a film and not a fabric, then those who are not working on cutting edge, like Rock, will look elsewhere, even if the price of cuben drops or the strength increases. As a film, it is just not the first thing to think of it where breathability is needed.
