not sure if a dog would stay in it if it saw an animal but for those that travel with a pet it might work to keep them dry and close also
This would be more like a tent over a hammock or a Hammock in a Tent
TA-DA! Got it - finally! Sorry to be late getting this posted. I had to appropriate the living room to work. Raining heavily here so no outdoor shots yet.
I used the TED Net and cut the bottom waterproof material in the same shape as my new hammock sock - dory shaped. Works perfectly. The walls pull up about 12 inches to contain splashes and a bit more protection from sideways rain.
I made the walls too high - better too high than not enough. Plenty of room to sit up, turn around, etc. Plenty of room for sleeping bags too.
Fits my hammock - I just rolled the extra material up for now. You can use it as a bottom protector and bug net for those hammocks without netting. The whole thing weighs in at 10.4 oz. Including suspension.
I made one side static and the other shock cord. Works just fine. Entry/exit takes 2.5 seconds and the wall snaps up with authority - the bugs will be intimidated for sure.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
