    Hammock Pillows

    Hi All, So the recent pillow thread got me thinking about comfort in my hammock. I have tried rolled up clothing in a stuff sack, but I just can not get comfortable that way. So I tried to come up with something that would work well in a hammock that would be light but would also give enough support to help maintain the comfort of the hammock. For me it is mostly my neck that needs a little bit extra.

    So I sat down at the Thread Injector and sewed up some hammock pillows. These are 1.1 oz ripstop DWR, filled with Climashield HL. They are 7"X11" with 3" of loft. I added a 25 inch shock cord tether with a mitten clip on the long end to clip to the hammock ridge line to keep it from slipping down when you sit up. I am including a small stuff sack that compresses the pillow to 4"x10" with a micro cord-lock. Weight on them is 4 oz. in the stuff sack with the shock cord line. I have a handful of these made up in black but could do some in other colors if someone would like something else.

    Asking $20.00 + shipping

    PM me if you are interested or want a specific size.

    Really nice pillow Paul.
    I leaned back in my fatboy recliner with that under my neck, everything just kind of went ....

    What other colors do you have available?
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    I am glad to hear that you enjoy the pillow. There is also green, silver, and white available in that same material which is 1.1 oz Downproof Nylon Breathable Ripstop (First Quality). I may be able to get some other colors, but they are in a bit different material that is not First Quality.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks but it was realy just spawnEd from how Shug hangs his stuff sack.

    I actualy just got back from a major butt kicker of what was going to be a five day trip that turned into a torentual down pore and then into let's get out of here. So I am beat, and after my wife picks me up from my budys house and we drive the hour home from here, I am going to pass out for most of the next 24. Then I will have one heck of a trip report for everyone.
