    I really like this hammock and am working on a design that borrows from this design and adds some other great features of other hammocks and some add on gear all rolled into one amazing package. I wish it was ready to show.

    Thanks to Jerry for sharing the concept and Hawkeye and TZ for sharing their versions.
    Looks good rjcress

    This length is really roomy

    I am starting another soon that will have a footbox and double zippers for entry.
    The hook and loop is kind of noisy in the night and sometimes snags the net.

    Just completed my Jerry #5 convertible. I would like to thank (in no particular order): Warbonnetguy, JerryW., TZbrown, Hawk-eye, 2qzq, and anyone else whose ideas I've incorporated into this hammock.

    Re: DIY Jerry #5 Hammock ...

    Thanks, I'm really glad I decided to take this project on. I really like the three zips on each side. It should make UQ adjustments a piece of cake.

    I also wasn't gutsy enough to use 1/4" bias tape, and opted for the 1/2". I'm also glad crooked seams are as strong as straight ones as I have quite a few crooked seams in mine.
