    I guess what I'm really looking for is the shape of the inner shell. Once I get the inner shell made I can make all other cuts based off it. Is Risk's hammock sock the same shape as the PeaPod?

    They're probably only good to around 70 pounds of pressure so I wouldn't trust them except on maybe a gear hammock or a VERY small child's hammock.
