    Hammock Chair

    I'm thinking of making a hammock swing, If I don't use something like sil nylon, what other material could I use that is easily bought at a fabric store?

    You wouldn't want sil in my opinion. Slippery..
    A decent weight (thickness) ripstop will work.
    Post pics when your done.

    Cordura in pretty much any weight would be great, assuming this is for the yard, and not backpacking.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen
