    Actually, if you stuck to the monkey fist method, you wouldn't have to sew anything at all; you could adjust it for different scenarios, and you wouldn't have to bring anything extra, just use what you'd normally bring.
    I don't know what a monkey fist is, but I get the idea -- very cool trick!

    Huh, I never thought about pull-outs... It could be nice to get more of a view while lying in it, though.

    While sleeping, I don't mind it sort of closing up around me, and I sometimes even throw the stuff sack side with my phone and lip balm and stuff in it over the other side to use it in "burrito mode" as I like to call it. In fact, I have yet to use my bug net because burrito mode seems like enough protection in most cases, though I wonder if this would still be true in warmer weather...

    Anyway, I may try the pull-outs with a pebble, just for kicks! Thanks for all the great ideas!

    Very cool ideas. I love this forum! I am gonna have to try this.
    With a radical sense of hope, I strive for the seemingly impossible.
