    Hammock chair

    I hunt. I use a light-weight chair that has a single leg for still hunting through the woods. It does the job but it is not all that comfortable for long periods.


    I love my hammocks but dont want such a large profile and even my lightweights are still heavier than my simple chair.

    Came across these "gear hammocks" that may fit the bill.

    Gear Hammock

    Anyone know of an alternative or something similar?

    In a perfect world - I'd love to replace my hand-warmer, chair, and fanny pack with one slick solution.

    SteelerNation has directions for a combo chair/pack cover/gear hammock here.

    I like that chair a lot.

    Also just found this one. Good if you only have one tree (which I most often do)

    Good hi-res of the front of it here.

    I read its not a very quiet material in cold temps which could be a deal killer for me.
