Okay I got my hammock tricked out with brand spanking new WhoOpie Slings. I went to put the hammock back into the snake skins and realized how much was taken up by the stock suspension ropes. One skin almost covered the entire hammock, two was overkill. I bought a couple of JRB quilts that came with some cordura stuff sacks. I don't use them for the quilts, I put them both in one sea to summit bag along with my clothes to keep them nice and dry.
All that to say, I was thinking about converting one of those bags into a Black Bishop style stuff sack. I punched a hole in the bottom of the bag and ran one of the slings through it and stuffed the rest of the hammock into the back. It seems like a great solution, it certainly is less bulky.
My question/concern is this, should I reinforce the hole to keep it from continuing to rip or get bigger? I was thinking putting a grommet there to shore it up. I would welcome any ideas or thoughts. Thanks in advance!
