    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.

    I finally got a chance to watch both video's.

    Wow, that looks very easy. The best designs seem to have the K.I.S.S. method and you nailed it. Great job on the video and the design.

    This project may be just what the DIY'er in me needs to make the wife a bridge hammock. Thanks a bunch.

    With your injector skills that thing will be great.
