    I had thought about that a while ago. I called it a hammock burrito My idea involved a roll closure on both ends with webbing on one end and buckles on the other that would create a compression style sack.

    I really like the roll top on the BB I just made. Really helps to compress the hammock down into a small package.

    I think I saw a drawing you did of that on your Photobucket album, right?
    Not a bad idea at all. Would you make that with plain ripstop, DWR or sil? I like the idea.

    That drawing was a different take on the BB sack. I gave that one up because I felt it was to complicated to sew and wouldn't really provide that much benefit. My original idea is just like you described;basically a cloth tube, but instead of drawstrings I was going to use roll closure.

    Ok, I'm with you on that one, hence the idea of it doubling as a compression sack. D'oh! I don't believe I just used "hence" in a sentence. Someone please shoot me.
