I like a double bottom. I like optional (but not required) spreader bars. I like a separate tarp.
I would like dual entry though, detachable bugnet and detachable weather shield
I'd also like storage pockets (like the Clark)
Tie out loops and under quilt loops would also be nice.
BTW - I made a home made hammock from some silnylon material I found at walmart a few years ago. I had a seamstress sew the edges. Then I made a gathered hammock following Jeff's instructions HERE
- really very simple to do. I've used that homemade hammock as a hiking hammock - I take it on hikes to take a nap in it halfway through my hike. At one point I weighed 270 lbs while using that hammock (I'm now down to 230) and had no issues with it.
before I found this forum and I was youtubing and googling I had found Hennessey first and was amazed, and then when I saw Clark I was even more wowed.
I am glad to see you have drop some lb's, I am a large guy as well and worry my fat ass will split the hammock and I would have to figure a good story to tell people how I broke my butt.
