    Sounds like you got nylon webbing instead of poly, where did you pick it up from?

    Okay, never mind. Apparently I made a newbie mistake by attempting a hang between 2 convienent trees in my yard that were too far apart. When I went for two that were more realistically placed the webbing and silnylon work great. Ready for the 2 night trial this weekend

The whipping is holding, but not certain that I trust it for an all nighter as the fabric is so slick. I'll check back for advice, gonna read more posts for DIY hammocks.....
    Just caught the SILnylon... most of us don't use sil as it is waterproof and does not breathe... Me? Add some soap, 'cause I'd be taking a bath by morning...

    YMMV! Let us know how it works out!
