I have a ton of 1.o ACU ripstop from the group buy and was looking to build another DIY hammock.
In the past, I have always used the same basic design with only slight modifications... A claytor mosquito clone. I'm looking to branch out a bit. Here's what I definitely want to include:
No Net! Open hammock
Double layer (I use a pad)
Works well for a taller fellow (I'm 6'4")
Doesn't need to have a structural ridgeline (I have always used claytor clones)
I was going to do an ENO clone since that what I'm used to. But after perusing the forums I was thinking of doing a gathered end with knotty stretch mod on the head end and some sort of footbox. Knot sure how this will work with a pad in the double layer and if those mods will add unnecessary weight. In the past, I have always slept in the hammock with my body in the middle of the hammock as I am primarily a side sleeper. Whatever design I choose must work with a wide pad as that isn't going away any time soon (I'ts the frame for my pack).
As always, Thank You for any suggestions. You guys are the best!
