I'm in the process of building my first DIY hammock - double layered, gathered end with zippered bugnet, shelf and footbox. I'm using 1.1 ripstop for the hammock body and 1.0 for the footbox and shelf. (The quality of the fabric is top notch - thanks Scott @ backwoodsdaydreamer.com).
Question for those who have traveled this road before - should I also go double layered on the footbox and shelf for added strength? Is that wise or just overkill?
