    Too slick!

    Now I have ideas swimming around in my brain......I am going to try something similar to your setup this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Love it.
    Have you considered adding a few compressor straps to the bag to get the size even smaller once everything is packed and cinched closed?

    Thanks for all the compliments! Just to remind everybody, I didn't invent this! I have to credit Shug and Babblefish5 (I think), for giving me the idea. Perhaps the difference is that I've been making my black bishop bags in the two-ended manner instead of putting a hole in a more rectangular bag.

    Thanks, Shug. The shock cord loops work pretty well, but I'm thinking about trying something else... A large mesh 'snakeskin' which would slide over the entire thing at the underquilt, compressing it just enough to make stuffing the whole setup in the bag a little easier, while also keeping all the layers in place. Less likely to loose it, too, since it would stay on the suspension with the black bishop bag.

    Well, part of the idea was to have the stuffed diameter be larger than the diameter of my pack, so that it perfectly conforms to the interior when packed. So, in this case, the backpack and its other contents provide the final compression.

    So if it were made from noseeum, you could also use it as a bug-sock? Multi-use...

    Hmm. Over my head perhaps. Good idea. If it were big enough to cover the occupied hammock, it would be to big for this particular purpose.

    True, true. Just a random thought. I enjoyed the video.

    Oh, well done!! I like the little shock cords to help keep it all tidy during unwrap and wrap. Very cool. Looks like I, too, have another DIY project to put on the list.
    Heh heh.
