guitar strings here.
Thanks Dutch, Derek, and everyone else for making this site awesome. Count me in
I'll just hang from this gigantic dead limb that could easily crush me in the middle of the night, what could go wrong?
Be sure to pack a stepstool so you can hang it high enough on the tree.
I've just got a dutch 11' nylonD hammock and am tinkering with the suspension at the moment. Im not a fan the way I whipped the ends because I can feel a little bit of a calf ridge. I...
Count me in brother
I cant imagine you can get a dogbone shorter than a continuous loop. Seems to me you have 1/2 the amount of room to burry so I worry about strength.
You certainly could. You could also save on weight and expense by splicing or putting a locked brummel on the end of your ridgeline to larkshead to the D-ring of the tarp ridge and using a flea...
Do you think it's possible to go smaller with those? It doesn't appear than your burries go the full length of the loop and meet eachother in the middle. I am looking at the smallest loop I can...
Did anything ever come of this?
What i've done with mine is splice one end onto a ti-dutchbiner, and use a stinger on the other end.
I start by clipping the biner to the head end of my tarp's ridge D-ring, then run the line...
Hey everyone what's everyone think about these tree huggers homedepot is selling? There's a 2" and 3" ...
Pics inside and out with the doors closed please :D
any pics with the doors closed? Love to see inside and out with the doors closed
Not to threadjack, but has anyone done a Knotty mod to their Dutch NylonD hammock?
Just hang him low and he should be fine. If he rolls out in the middle of the night 6" isn't going to do much damage.
The most important thing about hanging in the wind is site location. You want a spot that provides shelter from the direction of wind. Bushes work great, a grouping of trees, rocks, felled logs,...

I disagree. Putting a cat cut on the ridgeline will make it hang really weird. Your peaks will be pointed up and allow in more weather, while allowing the sides to hang down lower.
I'd really love to see what the woodland cammo NylonD looks like.
Doesn't ripstop by the roll make this multicam pattern in a silnylon? why go through the extra trouble of siliconizing it yourself?
My ENO doublenest got me into it, but the 11' gathered end I tried is better in every way, and less expensive.
Nice work, I would add a tieout or two to the middle of the sides so you can fold in your corners like doors if you need to. Give us the details about this thing.
size? weight? all that goodstuff.
you say it's a rectangular bag? What are the dimensions? On an UQ, you want the length to be about 50-60" wide X 70-80" long. If you're able to get two piece like that out of each half you should...
I believe that's a photo of general sherman, the tallest redwood in the world. I believe those are park workers, and I doubt it's legal to climb even if you could find it. (its location is a well...
Haven't decided yet. I will probably put some slight cat cuts the sides, but probably not on the ends.
The rectangle tarp imho is more versatile.
You can still pinch in the corners as doors like the winter tarp with a rectangular tarp, so long as you have 1-2 tieouts in the middle. You can pitch...
how are the line-locs working for you?
This is perfect, thankyou.
I am sold. it's all a matter of time now.
The silnylon Multicam is the fabric i've been looking for forever. Im glad to see that RBTR has gotten the ball rolling on this fabric, but that price OUCH! $17.50 a yard. I know it's still in...
I like it. I keep one end completely cinched at the foot end of my hammock. It fits my hammock and bugnet so I can deploy them as one and never have to remove the bugnet. I use a sock style bugnet...
I always love the look of shock when I tell them I made my setup when they ask me where I bought it.
Waste of weight and cord. I just tie the lines to my d-rings, and then larks head the tieouts to my tent stakes at the length I want them and then seat the stake.
You shouldn't need doors with a rectangular tarp, the corners should fold in fine to make doors just requires a few extra tieouts.
Seems expensive Try diy gear supply, or dutch
Yes a simple flat felled seam down the ridge line to start it off
Then you've got to decide what you want to do for tie-outs. I would recommend either putting 1 tie-out in the middle, or 2...
Probably more shits than giggles.:lol:
A little food for thought, I'd recommend something with a little more protection for cooler weather. Hex tarps can still be very drafty and will only give a slightly better protection against the...
At $3.50 a yard, you're well off to just wait for some silnylon 2nds to go on sale.
Your first line of defense is Site location. Find a spot that is on a sheltered side of the ridge, or next to some tall brush with trees that will allow you to hang perpendicular to the wind.
If the goal is creating a lighter good weather tarp to compliment your foul weather superfly, why not make a diamond asym? Easier to make, less materials needed, and even lighter weight.
Where does one find a 12x10 piece of the soft stuff?
How long have you been digging to find a 4 year old post?
Its not necessary. I made mine with just a rolled hem around the edge and its held up just fine. I triple rolled the hem before i sewed to give it a little more strength, but grosgrain would be...
Weight savings minimal? I cut my shelter/sleep system in half by 5lbs, and I didnt even go with lightweight stuff.
slide a piece of wax paper intbetween
I hang with an eno doublenest and about 12-15' between trees. I have a 12' hex tarp that I think is just a tiny bit too long in the ridge. The next tarp I make will be an 11x10 rectangle. this way...
60" = 5' so You'd only have to do 2 sections 5x10. but still 14' ridgeline is LONG and will force you to hang well above your hammock due to the suspension of your hammock. This along with the...
