    Bridge questions

    With a pad pocket inside, How does a bridge hammock work with a large or regular neoair or other full size pad ??

    Is 2.2 oz crinkle taffeta like from a tablecloth good enough for 240# or would I be better off with ripstop.

    Thanks

    The polyester crinkle taffeta tablecloth fabric works great for a bridge hammock. I've made 2 now with a single layer of the fabric (2.5 oz/yd^2). I am close to your size, so you should be fine.

    Cheers
