I've been toying around with the idea of a partial sock for my hammocks. Not a full length sock, but just enough to cover each end and provide a little extra wet weather protection under my diamond tarp.
Maybe a 2 to 3 foot section at the foot and head made from a lightweight nylon ripstop of some type ( I was looking at the coated ACU seconds DIY Gear has for it, but 1.1 with DWR might be fine ). They would just extend a short ways over the suspension, and then down and ride a short way down the ridgeline.
I had also considered making the foot end double as a snakeskin as well so everything would pack down into it for quick deployment.
Anybody ever do something like this before? I couldn't find any recent references to anything like it, but I may just be blind
