October hang, James river VA Kayak camping
Nice,,, Early Muzzle Loader comes in Thursday for us
When the 3-5 mph breeze hit (and it was a slight breeze)I got a slight chill from the top. But remember a 48 deg breeze is cold, a65 deg breeze is not.
I would say shorts and tee shirt - 60 deg is...
I have made 4 UQ's with CS 3.7 my designs have dart cuts, etc reqiring the cutting and stitching of the Clima Sheild.
The last UQ was a 2 layer of CS.
I picked up a spray can of headliner...
I have 6 Hennessey Hammock, just like em. all bought used for about 1/2 cost of new. Most purchased off this forum, 1 off craigs list
Remind me to never by a used hammock from you LOL
On the rivers we camp, you'd need a 12" foam pad to lay on them rocks,,
I have 5 Hennesy Hammocks, soon to have another, as some "schmuck" dangled the bait in front of me, knowing I'd bite :)
(dang this forum :) )
I typ take 2-4 kids kayak camping, so they are all...
Upper James River near Glasglow VA, 22 miles, overnighter. probably last trip of the season,,
Fishing was kinda slow, but a good trip overall....

I took the throws and made TQ's by folding the sides in at the foot and sewing the bottom closed and the folded in sides up about 24" to make the foot box.
James River VA. night temps about 48deg,...

Got it, Mines a long shank machine,, So I need a long shank adapter,,
The foot does not "clip" on or off
I have 3 machines, all the same
Problem, I ordered the rotary foot kit, it says it fits any machine.
The instructions say to push the "red" button to release your presser foot,, my machine does not have a "releasable foot" am...
For the life of me I see no difference between the 2 ?
Looking to purchase my 1st double layer hammock.
I saw the link you had on another forum to the binder attachment you use:
The link wont work,, can you...
I have been pinning, but it's a PITA. Was thinking spray, slap, spray, slap. I'm looking to streamline the UQ making.
Now if I can find an easy way to sew the grosgrain on :)
I was making an UQ with Clima and ripstop.
I had to make relief cuts in the clima and then sew it to get my curve, then put it between 2 layers of nylon and pin it
I was thinking if there was...
Yeah, is that sleeping naked, or is 6 layers of thermals with a parka on ??
Thanks for the reply guys,
Do all "basic" ripstop nylons "breathe" ?
Should the outer shell be water proof? but then it wont breathe ?
I a have a 2 Hennesy's I need to make UQ for,
We are Kayakers, not hikers so weight is not an issue. I am looking for a basic inner and outer shell material, not cutting edge light weight.
The under quilts we made have cut outs for the pull out lines. They help keep the UQ in position,
Been a while since I have posted, Been busy with Rodeo,, but still hanging strong!! :)

Daughter and I travel for Team Penning, she gets the goose neck bed, I get the Hammock, Doc gets the pasture,,,
It's a nimbers game for me,, how many tens of million hiking hours are put in by hikers in "bear states" in the US? how many fatal encounters each year? 1? .5? .25?
Number wise, I have a better...
Funny thing is,, 10 Y.O. Son has slept in his own hammock for the last 2 years on our trips,, mama convinced him that he "needed" to sleep with her.
That was her 1st and last trip,,
sewn the perimiter on 2 climashield UQ's,, works great
Worked for mama and 10 Y.O. son, in a HH Safari.
He slept thru the night, she woke every time the racoons sent in a raiding party!
She is 6' and 145#, he's a typ 10 Y.O.
Thanks StormCrow, more info is better.
I am not doing production, just a lot of "1 of" DIY gear making.
I enjoy the making process,, but it is no joy if my machne is a pain with 1.1 and 1.9...
Rev you saved me my "new Kayak" money :)
I will play with the foot pressure adjustment.
The hair pins sold good,, I may still try double sided sewing tape, I'll repeort back.
I have had "limited" luck with My Necchi SN and Dressmaker feeding 2 layers of nylon, never feeds both pieces evenly.
I will go out on a limb and translate your response as "not worth the price and...
I have a spray jug filled with farm grade permith cut to .5%.
I was not sure it would "repell", I knew it would kill after a while, but thought maybe they would have enough time to...
Anyone use a "binder attachment" ? one that folds and feeds the grossgrain?
Saw a vid of a nice one, but it screws to the table of the Sailrite, my Necchi does not have tapped holes in the table :(...
When looking for a machine to make typ outdoor gear, would a walking foot or a dual feed be better??
Hammock camping in MD May thru Oct, HH explorer UL and Safari, and UL backpacker.
My UQs are ~ 3/4 "summer quilts, they run from my thighs to my neck.
That leaves my head and feet vulnerable...
got word from HH that it's a no go, in fact they said DO NOT attach the hex fly to the hammock, but use seperate suspension.
All my explorers have Snake Skins and I love them.
I recently purchased the HH Safari with the HH hex tarp.
this is one big hammok and tarp.
will this combo fit in the large hh snake skins ??
Was set to make 2 UQ's, having already made 2 with 1.1 ripstop shells,, Jumped on the Momentum bandwagon, major mistake, that crap is like trying to sew thin *** kitchen trash bags.
ordered some material for an uUQ about a year ago:
which is the inner shell (agianst hammock) and which is the Outer shell?
The black has a realy shiney...
Thinking about an overnight on horseback with my daughter (she's a hammocker).

Message sent on the Kodiak,,
One of each sitting at Goodwill,,
Do they both have all metal gears ?

I carried a GT UL (with straps and dutch clips) in my day bag to any event I went to, (horse shows, family reunions, kids sports). it was a great way to chill out for an hour between games....
Heres how to solve all them problems with the wife encroaching on your time/space:

What ever happened to the climasheild combat (3.7) ?
I'll chime in,
I have 4 HH explorers and Exped's, never paid more than $80.00
One of the Exped's I got for 50.00
all very lightly used, just a thought.
I fact I got a HH exped, jetboil, titanium...
Getting ready to sew one up with clima sheild 2.5 (2 season quilt, down to 40)
Clima comes in 60" wide, 60" long enough?, or order 72" (2 yards)
Who sells clima sheild, the inner and outer shell...
