    WOW! Is it just me, or is that fabric on a really great sale? Is it comfy/quality feeling?

    Feels fine.

    Magna does not cut fabric to order, so you take what you get when it's in stock. The roll I bought was 46 yds. They only sell it on the roll, so the shipping is shockingly expensive due to the length. Usually the "shipped" price comes out to about $2.00/yd.

    A big group buy was done a year or two back on their 30D ACU.

    Nice looking hammock. How long is the pipe your using on your hammock stand? And the height of it for hanging the bridge hammock? Stand looks awesome too!

    Thanks.

    It's a 16 footer (4x4' aluminum sections) and as you can see I'm using all of it with the WBRR length suspension triangles and Dutch cinch buckles. Getting creative, one could get by with a ~14' pole and maybe less with your shortened triangles.

    The ridgepole height is only ~63" due to the tighter hang of the bridge.

    I finished this hammock today with the installation of the end caps. The head end has a shallow pocket.

    Did I say I am very pleased with this project? .............. I am!

    For those interested...Breyman has some of this fabric up for sale here to help fund a scouting project.

    Where did you get the ridgepole poles? How do they secure into each other?
    Tag with Home if your thread is more about home hammocks. Thanks!
