I have a plan in mind for the hammock I want to build. Im throwing the plan out to all of you for advice and potential problem spotting before I begin. I've never made a hammock before and I think this plan is ambitious but I'm going for it.
The hammock will be a gathered end. I may also consider making SGTRock's Ghost hammock. I want to experiment with an inflatable hammock bottom as the insulation instead of ccf or UQ. I know that would make the bottom non breathable but I'm thinking its similar to using ccf as far as not breathing. I would put some down into the air chambers in an attempt to add warmth and keep the air more still. Im imagining the inflated bottom would go from long edge to long edge and head to foot. The hammock body would support my weight with no body weight on the outer layer.
Then I want the Hammock sock with the SEEP that Hangnout and MedicineMan have shown. I'm thinking of making the entire sock with Momentum90. I'll have a bug net on the SEEP side only. Both the bug net and the sock entrance will be SEEPs if that makes sense. So the bug net is part of the sock not the hammock.
I really like the sock/SEEP/tarp concept and Im excited to try adding the bug net. The inflatable bottom is a stretch but may work. If it works I wonder if it could be used also as an integrated top quilt. No quilts to carry! (not that they're hard but less is still better)
