    Talking dream hammocks

    This thread is for the discussion of various far-fetched new hammock designs.

    RULES:

    No existent hammocks to be discussed. You might love your HH, but the place to say so isn't this thread.

    If suggesting a new design, prototype images should be made, if at all possible.

    Suggested multiple uses are good.

    Only semi-serious designs to be discussed- if it's a real one, why then, it should be taken seriously in a different thread.

    maybe thinking of the wall will trigger that "next big idea"

    my attempt:

    A hammock with built in insulation (quilt like) but can turn into a pad for ground sleeping. (like a shelter) Since the air mat has to hold air, it won't be breathable, so you could also use it for a hanging bath!





    and it looks like these images might be in the wrong category- could a mod move them, please?

    Mine isn't as extreme or cool, but on another thread based on what Arkwater was doing I was making an asym Speer hammock. When I get some more nylon I am going to make it.

    something like the Exped Hammat only using a DAM and a better suspension system - I don't like the hammocks with the fanned out lines for the suspension - tangled lines are no fun

    edit - I see TH beat me to that idea - oh well

    Or a hammock with some sort of heating system....

    My dream hammock would probably include some sort of air bag system so that when you don't tie your hammock to something strong your a** doesn't get bruised when you hit the ground!

    I'm working on mine now, gotta find a 96" zipper. No one seems to carry one locally.
