    DIY Hammock and Bug Net

    Well the set up is complete. Definitely not the lightest but ohhhh so comfy! 11 foot DIY channeled ends hammock made for DIY gear supply nylon. Fronkey style bug net with cinched ends made of Dutchwear no-seeum mesh and shock cord. DIY suspension made of 1/8" Amsteel continuous loops with Dutchwear cinch buckles and DIY tree straps. Also DIY adjustable UCR ridgeline. Special thanks to this community of amazing people, too many to mention. Your endless videos and step by steps helped a ton. And as always, thanks so much to our wonderful cottage venders for building great gear and offering supplies to do it yourself.

    Good job man!
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Looks like you're comfy! Great job.

    Will this particular net allow room for your UQ? It appears to be close against the bottom of the hammock. NOT a criticism!!! Just wondering if it is as it appears.

    Plenty of room actually, I have the shock cord at the bottom very tight. Thanks for the observation FM.

    It looks great and I'm impressed that you figured out getting the continuous loops onto the cinch buckles. I took 2 days to figure that it wasn't just a triple larkshead from a continuous loop.

    This forum is a treasure and the vendors are great, too!

    EB. Man your set up looks great. I have similar heads for my first DIY setup. Can you share any spec or templates for ur cuts. What materials did u use for ur hammock. How did u determine how much no-see um mesh for the fronkey bugnet? Again looks great!
