Saw this http://thehammockseat.com/forms/Fana...icOutdoors.php and decided to take a crack at it. I used 4' of 64" wide 1.1 and folded it over to get 32". Came out a little narrow I bet 40" or so would be better. I gathered up each end so its just like a small hammock. Just slapped it on the tree with some cord I had and used a dirty old pipe for the pole but it worked great, I could pivot and everything. I bet a hiking pole could work and probably just use your hammock suspension. Sorry for the butt pic lol.
