    Video: Easy DIY Bridge Hammock

    Two part series showing how I make a Bridge Hammock. Single layer 1.9oz ripstop has held me up just fine for lots of nights at 275lbs. Also should say the dimensions in the video are good for someone up to 6'4". Hope you enjoy and let me know if there are any questions.

    Same here. I'm at work right now but will check it out later. Haven't made a bridge yet so it will be helpful. Thanks.

    Great video. Can you say how much the custom Dutchware cost?

    I liked your method of making the dogbones. It's a lot easier than the method I've used in the past.

    Sincerely,

    That's a very nice "How to build a DIY bridge hammock for dummies" to go along with the more detailed Grizz series. Wish I had this in February to shortcut my learning curve. Well done.

    I would like to point out for those that don't have the custom hardware, that Grizz's method of larksheading the dogbones directly to the webbing loops works well...
