    You may have to lower the supports a bit to get the ridgeline tight. Do you plan to put a bugnet on it?


    Yes! I would like to add a bugnet and a zipper, but I'm scared Schneiderlein. So very scared.

    And I don't have the bugnet or the zipper yet.

    Scared!? You?!
    Just do it. The worst that can happen is a hole in your thumb from not paying attention.

    Oddly Enough

    Oddly Enough Cannibal as much fabric as I have destroyed in my projects, I have never come close to that thread injecting point. I keep good distance in front and behind.


    Schneiderlein, where did you get your zipper? What kind of cord did you use for your ridge line? Where can I get some? and and and What kind of cord did you use to put in the channel? The one that the ridge line connects to inside the ends.

    The zipper I used on the hammock you saw at the Congaree hangout was a #5 zipper from questoutfitters.com. I think you could probably use a #3 zipper for some weight savings (the blackbirds seemed to have had #3's on them, but I'm not really sure).

    I would recommend you install a little triangle patch at the tie-out before you put the zipper on the hammock to make the zipper run straighter. Maybe 8-10" wide by 3" high or so...

    Cord? I used 550 cord for the channel just because I had it. You could use something a lot lighter, but I removed the strands from the inside and we are only talking about five inches or so...

    For the ridgeline, I used 3mm Lash-It. Again, I had it around but it's way overkill at 1,200 lbf breaking strength...

    I actually did not connect the ridgeline to the cord in the channel, but used the same loops with a knot as hc4u. I thought about doing it the other way, though, but then I got too lazy...

    If you want to get a closer look at the hammock I made, you're welcome to borrow it for a while.

    I used 1.9oz ripstop and noseeum from Ed Speers. I also added the little triangle at the tie-outs to make the zipper run straighter. The bug net is not removable, but has a full-length zipper so it can be flipped over the ridgeline. I did not measure for the bug net dimensions, but wrote a little program to compute the shape. Worked out well. At the end of the zipper, I put a little patch of dyneema ripstop. I put a 3/4" channel in the ends of the hammock and ran a piece of cord through them to gather the fabric. I used a cable tie to hold it in place. The hammock weighs 15 oz without suspension.

    Love the hammock! It is very comfortable. I took it on a trip on the Foothills Trail last week and was amazed at how much warmth the bug net added. When I get around to it, I will make an overcover that attaches to the bug net. Below are some pictures.

    Thanks again, hc4u, for providing such an excellent tutorial!





    Schneiderlein,
    Thanks again for the Dyneema square.
    I notice that in the one picture above, that your zipper pulls meet in the center. Does your bug net fully detach form the hammock?

    You're welcome, Bob. The bug net is not detachable, but it can be flipped over the ridge line for a half open hammock. I guess it's like a Hennessy with a #3 zipper mod from 2QZQ.

    I thought about making the bug net removable, but decided against it. For one, I like the convenience of the two zipper pulls that can meet anywhere I want them to, so I don't have to reach all the way to the end of the hammock. Also, the bug net only weighs a hair less than 1.5oz. The #5 zipper I used is about 1.4oz, and each pull adds about 1/4oz. Didn't see the sense in adding more weight than the bug net itself for zippers just so I could leave the bug net at home.

    I am working on an over cover for the hammock at the moment, but it's hard to get motivated when the sun is shining...
