    Might I suggest installing a second pull out on the head side half way between the end and the current tie out. I find this helps me to get the head end a little more taunt and keeps the bugnet from touching my face.

    Thanks for the suggestion. With the netting pinned in place yesterday, it was not in my face at all. I was thinking about more tie outs anyway, though. I'll see how it is once it's sewn.

    Well, the netting is now attached, so I just have a few finishing touches. I want to add a small triangular patch where the zippers meet at the top to close off the small gap, I need to make a small peak bag to stuff the netting into when it is unzipped, a larger peak bag for the head end storage, maybe a ridgeline organizer, and then a bishop bag of course.

    I'm really really happy with how this has turned out. It is cavernous inside with the netting deployed, and oh so comfortable. Our kitchen scale is M.I.A. at the moment, so I'm not sure how much it weighs, but I'll update the thread when I find it and finish the other items.

    Looks as good as it gets. You sure this was your first cause it looks like an awesome job.
    Small touch on the black bishop bag. If you add a mesh pocket to the outside you can store your straps and toggles separate from your hammock. I always forget this step till after I make my bags cause I am just so excited to be finished the hammock.

    Thanks for the compliment and the pointer on the bishop bag. It definitely needs some pockets. This just goes to show that with all of the projects and help from this forum, anyone can put one of these together. Tons of knowledgeable and friendly people here.

    That is a great looking hammock. I like how you have put together the bug net. Top notch effort and result on your first DIY project.

    So I finally found the kitchen scale. I haven't made a bishop bag for it yet, but I also kind of like the idea of using this dry sack. Anyway, the hammock, whoopies, 2x6' straps, 2x3' extensions, 2 soft shackles, and the O.R. dry sack all comes in just shy of 2lbs. Not too bad.

    With a ripstop stuff sack I bet you could shave 10oz off that.

    nice looking set up! how does the strength of the dutch ridgline biner seem? I was thinking about picking one up, but i like to string the hammock suspension pretty tight so I can hang stuff of the hammock ridgline, and i didn't want to get it for it to just bend out when i use it the first time. I use 7/64 amsteel for the SRL and 1/8 amsteel for the whoopies
