    Ugh. He should be held accountable, but I personally wouldn't send it away to be fixed. DIY sew job or a local tailor shop. If you pay he pays. If you don't pay, he still pays by taking you for a nice dinner or buying you a bottle of the good stuff.

    Why's everyone so adamant about the money? It's his friend and it was probably an accident. I know I've forgiven my friends for worse accidents than that...and vice versa.

    Let's give advice on repair and let the folks involved worry about the details of funds.

    Because even a friend has to have some common sense. This isn't forgetting to use a coaster, this is damage to a $175 piece of handmade gear.

    That said, I would have asked my friend how he's going to take care of this.

    Sending it back to Brandon for inspection repair would be an acceptable option. Otherwise I'd sew it up myself.

    So CT, what did your friend say/do/offer? Or is he already forgiven and it's your baby to fix now? Just curious.

    Good point, AS. On that vein, I like a DIY sew job best. Quick, not difficult, not costly.

    Maybe his friend already offered to pay. Maybe he'll pay himself. That's not the point.

    The OP didn't ask how to deal with his friend. He asked for repair advice.

    Reminds me of a movie:

    Biker #2: [the whole gang holds Pee-wee hostage] I say we kill him!
    Biker Gang: [shout] Yeah!
    Biker #3: I say we hang him, *then* we kill him!
    Biker Gang: [shout] Yeah!
    Biker #4: I say we stomp him!
    Biker Gang: [shout] Yeah!
    Biker #4: Then we tattoo him!
    Biker Gang: [shout] Yeah!
    Biker #4: Then we hang him...!
    Biker Gang: [shout] YEAH!'!
    Biker #4: And then we kill him!
    Biker Gang: [shout] YEAH!'!'!
    Pee-wee: [tries to throw voice without moving lips] I say we let him go.
    Biker Gang: [shout] NO!'!'!
    errr... I am joking. Sorry about the burn hole.

    i was taking it on the form that he was already warned that hammocks although a rarely known fact. are very suseptible to hot stuff.

    just like i said, switch the situation around. if you feel like you should have been like: "hey buddy i know shugs your idol but you cant smoke a cigar like him in my hammock"
    and if he was like: "awe man c'mon i'll be like harry houdini with this thing you wont even know i smoked it...."
    then shame on him but if the above conersation didnt happen then meh.
    forgiveness is a virtue?

    actually. think of it like a new mod to your hammock. done free, now you can keep your hydration bladder outside and put the tube threw the new hole!!! freakin awesome!

    Or, it could be the solution for how to answer nature's call in middle of the night, depending upon location and size of the hole of course

    Point taken. I guess we are just a little defensive when it comes to our gear.

    Nice battle scar! ( annoying though)

    I'd repair it like John says, unless you have a small piece of bugnet to patch over it.
