Hows it hanging?
having had a browse of yours, and a few others websites, while researching the best type of overnighting for a mountain bike rider, i am very interested in having a bash at making my own hammock!
just one or two questions
What type of ripstop should i use? are there different grades? will most nylon hold me (I'm 6'5" but only 72 Kilo, 11 stone in imperial)
another thing i was going to comment on is that, on my travels, people have said it is easy to get cold in a hammock, due to the flow of air underneath the hammock
has anyone ever considered sewing a layer of myler (super tough space blanket foil) into the base of a hammock, to refelct the heat fromt he person, back up, through the user, and into the airspace in the 'tent/tarp' bit of the hammock
is there a leverage factor on the hammock, ie:, if i way 11stone, will the weight applied to each end be 5 and a half stone? or does it increase?)
what size of hammock would i use? how much material would i want (at 6'5")
cheers!, looking forward to my zero residual presence adventures!
