I just whipped up a new hammock with 1.1oz ripstop I got from DIYgearsupply.
It's nothing fancy. Just hemmed the edges and whipped the ends.
I'm 6'5" and have previously used hammocks that were uncomfortably short so as an experiment I made this one extra long. Unhemmed, the fabric is 12' long.
I will most likely trim this down at some point but I just wanted to see what it was like. You can always trim fabric but you can't add it back!
I was just curious whether a hammock can be too long purely from a comfort perspective. I realize that there are other issues like tarp coverage to worry about when using a long hammock but is there a point when a hammock becomes uncomfortable due to its length?
