    BOY DO I! This would go great in m backyard with my ACU tarp you made. Keep the black silnylon ready for enemy lines that way!

    Hey Nick I thought you might like it. Let me finish out some details and as soon as Scott gets back, we'll talk some more. Mean while - more pictures!

    I finally got the zipper and side pulls on and will be pinning the net in place and sewing it up. This is the last part of the construction job. The more I lay in it the more I like it.

    For anyone wanting to make one of these, please note that the openings for the insertion of a pad works very well. One opening on each side on opposite sides. The transition from the dual layer of fabric to the single layer is not hard. Just sew the zipper up to the opening and carefully move the inner piece (the zipper continues on the outside) out of the way and keep sewing to the end.

    When you finish sewing the zipper on, test the hammock - the openings for the pad should snap shut when your in the hammock.

    So on to the pictures. I made the pull outs differently - sewing them on at the same time as the zipper. I used the Beastee Ring from DIY Gear Supply as a pull out. Very strong.

    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Looks like the same material I got from a different source. Have made several hammocks ( Singles and doubles) with it and it is very comfortable.

    Looking to make a Fronkey Bug Net to go with it.

    I almost went with the Fronkey net, but wanted to see how this project turned out with an integrated net.


    The hammock is pretty much finished. Just have to do some trimming, thread cutting, etc. I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.

    After making my head hurt from trying to come up with a different method of making the net completely detach from the head end, I came up with a very simple answer.
    I simply ended the net side of the zipper so it simply stops, but when you unzip each side it comes off completely. It only works with both zippers - one on each side. It looks cleaner than zipping around on a continuous zip. Pictures explain it better than me, so here's it is.

    Thank you, scoffman! This weekend will be the hammock test in full!

    On a side note - the double layer has lots of room between the layers. I slipped a full size truck reflector in and it has room to spare! I'll have to dig out my Big Agnes inflate'o pad and see how fits.

    Here's some pics.

    Made a quick top cover in the more traditional camo colors. Sleeping in it tonight as it's going down to a chilly 58 degrees. Just need a peak bag and a ridge line organizer and she's done and ready for the weekend!

    Thank you, rcam.

    Slept very well and most importantly to me, is that there is no ridge to bother my legs - just smooth fabric. Also rolled over on my side easily. This is going to be a great 4 season hammock - a little heavy for some - the entire (with the top cover) hammock weighs in at 46.7 oz. That's lines, shock cord pull outs and everything.
