Marked to watch later but men, I love the idea!
Now to use that too as a swagroll/gearskin backpack, tree huggers for backpack straps, whoopies for tying and made of mithrill... no .... anyway, great idea and will happily watch and rewatch it....
Nonetheless, I'll make the Survival Hammock a foot longer.
I'll also offer a couple of suspension options. I figured out how to use a short Amsteel strap, and rig it so it is recoverable after you ungather the hammock.
More news toward the end of the week!
Nicely done Mac.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace without end to you.

Watched it and loved it.....thanks MacEntyre!
Orange Rescue Me Survival colour option instead of black?
Thanks to everyone for the kind words.
Sorry to have to do that... sure wish I could afford a bunch of rolls of fabric in lots of fancy colors!

Nice idea Mac. I like the option of crawling inside or sleeping on top of it.
To keep the netting off your face, could you sew a loop of material in the corner of the netting? (instead of pole sleeves) You could use it with trekking poles on the ground or tie off to the tarp ridge line if you crawl inside in hammock mode.

'tie off to the tarp ridge line ' very smart and that'll work when in hammock mode
and in ground mode a string up to a branch could work to keep it off the face too.
That's nice and simple... a grosgrain loop in the center of the upper edge of the noseeum window. Good idea!
Good start Mac !
I think if you make the bug net window larger as the traditional "Mors Scarf"
has and also add some tabs for staking to use as a bivy bag your well on your way to a winner.
Adding the foot to a 10' hammock would also a good choice.
