I have a single nest ENO, SSPro straps, and a MacCat Standard tarp on the way. I want to use snakeskins but, dunno what size I need. I want the tarp and hammock seperate. If I get a bugnet itl be the one from campmor.
I also am interested in the Stuff sac thingy for the hammock instead of skins ...maybe...I havent even set this thing up yet but will get to on a trip in a week.
The only skins I have found there wasn't a size and I wouldn't know what size to get anyway. I would attempt to make my own as I have DWR but, I don't have a sewing machine and NO sewing skills! I have NO CLUE how to use those things! My mom does but, she doesn't sew very straight
Any advice would be appreciated. I am not above hand sewing something. Unless you think it will be a bit much.
BTW I liked the idea of the mesh skins for the tarp. I believe that was Hammock Engineer? Excuse me if I am wrong.
Thanks for the credit, but it belongs to someone else. I think I first saw it one Jeff's site, who I think saw it somewhere else. There are some pics of mine in Michele's gallery that I sent her. I usually use sil for waterproofing and noseeum for the tarp. I think DWR would work.
For my tarp I added 16" to the length of jacks dimensions, and for the hammock and underquilt I added 2-4" (can't remember off hand) to the width of both ends. That makes probibly a #6 skin. The smaller ones worked for me, but they were harder to get on. The larger ones slip right on. They are also easier to gather up and stuff into my pack.
If you want I am willing to trade if you have extra DWR laying around for a set of sil and noseeum skins. I have extra grey sil and white noseeum laying around. PM me if you are interested.
