I'll take the exped if it doesn't get taken!
Interested. PM coming.
I'm putting together a few of DIY hammocks and looking for some solid colored ripstop. I need 10 yards total for 3 hammocks. If you happen to have any or know where to look, let me know! I usually...
Yup, ready to close. Thank's for the help!
Thank you for the help and peace of mind! These will work perfect.
What all comes with it? Does the footprint and fly come with?
Just looking for anyone who has an extra sleeping pad repair kit. I have an organe exped and a big agnes insulated air core but the colors don't matter much. I looked in my bag and found my glue had...
Hello and welcome! It certainly is a good place full of good people.
Is this still going to happen? I am very interested in this!
Welcome from South Dakota! Enjoy your time on here!
Welcome from up in South Dakota. Enjoy HF, there's plenty to explore.
Welcome from Rapid City! Should you (or anyone else for that matter) find yourself up north give me a shout!
Welcome from RC, SD! The exploring of HF never ends.
Nice to meet you neighbor! Welcome to HF and if you ever find yourself in the Black Hills and looking to hang, hit me up!
UncleMJM, I like the way you put that! The trees are the place to be; welcome!
Welcome from the Black Hills. It sure is a good time here on HF.
Welcome from the Black Hills.
Good to have you on! Welcome form Rapid City.
DIY hammocks are the cheapest by far I think, and a bit fun to make! I found enough people (I've got 4 siblings and outdoorsy friends) where I could buy in bulk and save big time!
Going on a Big Horns backpacking trip and need a good sleeping bag. If you don't have one maybe some advice on good options for sleeping bags.
I'll take it.
I'll take the GSI for $15.
I would love to be in on this!
I am looking for some convertible pants; size 34x32. Also looking for a larger sized jet boil system. I'm not particularly fond of eating nuts and fruit while hanging :lol:
I'll take BA Primaloft if scoffman doesn't want it!
I'll probably do that, although I do feel a little bad cutting up a perfectly good ratchet strap!
I'm leaving for Puerto Rico on Saturday!
Do you have a like to it? I cannot find it on their site.
What stores sell webbing? I need to make some quick tree straps for an up coming trip!
Thank's for the help!
Wow, that does sound pretty slick! What does a hot iron like that cost?
Great! I think the table cloth factory offers quite a reasonable price for their Crinkle Taffeta. I'm sure almost none...
Is amsteel to slippery to use to whip a DIY hammock?
Hmm, I am 6' 185# so that might be cutting it close, plus I am not sure about the other people who will be making them! I cannot seem to find the hammock blanks! Is there a link to follow?
I am getting my DIY materials together, and I just want to make sure 1.1 oz 2nds from backwoods day dreamer would work. Also, I am whipping the ends so is it necessary to hem the top and bottom since...
Amen! It can be awfully brutal, but well worth it. Day hikes are also quite exhilarating, as well as catching 185 walleye in 4 days!
I love the Big Horn National Forest, around cloud peak area. I also love the Boundary Waters in Minnesota near Wednesday Bay, but that is more canoeing then it is backpacking! I am going to Puerto...
Thank you Junebugdawn! That is quite the price! Got my order in, now the hardest part....the wait!
Great! Thank you very much!
Still looking for extras if you have them!
What are other low cost ways to seal the ends of ripstop besides hemming?. I don't have access to a machine and would like to do something to make it last longer.
Just wondering, as far as materials go, if the 1.1 oz ripstop nylon from DIY gear supply (backwoods day dreamer) will be durable enough. I'm just looking for additional input.
Great to know! I have amsteel too so I think I should be good. It's much lighter and very good price! Plus, with a name like DIY gear supply, I'm more than happy to patronize them! Thanks Jimbo!
Just a question about 1.1 oz nylon. I found some here: http://www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com/products-page/breathable-fabrics/Would the 1.1 oz ripstop 2nds work for a hammock? I am 6' and 185 pounds...
Craige, Thank you very much. I apologize, that is what I was trying to say (gathered vs channel) but thank you for clarifying. I suppose channel would cut a few grams of rope as well.
I know this sounds quite trivial, but I am simply wondering how you pronounce hammock? Perhaps it depends on where you live; I grew up saying "hammick" but recently I ran into someone convinced it...
Just starting a DIY hammock and could uses some extra amsteel or zing-it for ridge line, something to wrap around a tree and a tarp for some shelter. Thank you for the help!
That's what I was thinking, just wanted to double check. Makes sense I suppose! Thank you for the help! I can't get enough of HF! So much knowledge and such generous people!
Brute, thank you! That is exactly what I've been looking for. If I added a ridge line, I could just put the ridge line's loop through the suspension, right? Also, what is better, the gathered end or...
I'm planning on making a UCR; is a locked brummel necessary for the loops or will a simple loop buried back into itself be strong enough? I'm just worried that if you pulled on the loop wrong you...
gmcttr, thanks for the links! Looks like I have some work to do! I cannot wait to hang!
