    Bushman Hammock Chair

    Paul,
    looking for some info on the Bushman Hammock Chair...
    -total weight for 1.1 and 1.9? recommended user weights for each?
    -what are you using for suspension parts? lengths?
    -any additional pics?

    Thanks

    Bushman Chair

    Hey AC, and all

    The chairs a pretty cool and make a great place to sit on a hike, I have one in my day pack and one hung up in the gear room.

    1.1's are coming in at about 8 oz and the 1.9 would be about 2 oz more than that.

    I have not found the top load limit on the 1.1 but I am recommending to keep under 250 - some stretch is not going to change the comfort on the chair like it would in a hammock. 1.9 would be good for most anybody above 250 or on the border, but again I have not yet been able to find anybody that would top out (tear) the fabric.

    Suspension is a webbing buckle system, working on a cinch buckle system but for now tri-rings (so back up slipped half is required)are the order of the day with a girth hitched set of amsteel through the sewn channel ends. We are shipping it with 14' of webbing on each end- should be plenty most places.

    You can set it up a couple of ways, the way I have pictured here: http://arrowheadequipment.webs.com/a...ts/show/928496

    is the lounger mode, or you can put you feet up like this:


    and adjust the recline by adjusting the straps.
    If you hang it like a regular hammock you can sit like you would normally in any full size hammock. It is not quite big enough for a person bigger than a kid to lay down in.

    Either the 1.1 or the 1.9 pack down to about the size of a large grapefruit.

    Sorry I don't have much else for pictures, the weather has kind of gone down the drain out here the past few weeks.

    Let me know if there is any other info I can help with.


    Thanks

    Paul

    What is the finished size of this chair?
    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.

    Sorry, missed you the other day somehow. This is off the top of my head, but roughly 3 foot 10 inch bt 4 foot 6 after hems and channels. Thats a good bit bigger than the Bushmans chairs but it lets you do the recliner thing much easier than a smaller size would.
