    I have been seriously considering making a hammock out of momentum though. I do know one person who made one successfully and has been using it for awhile.

    Thanks I had seen that thread already (after I saw it in the video of you laying in it)!

The third night it was warmer, maybe 45 or more, so I used the uninsulated cuben hammock with the NS underquilt. (1) It was very warm. (2) More importantly, it was very comfortable. The 18 adjustable cords on each end really let me fine tune it to a shape that suits me. Others tried it and seemed impressed, though some (who are too tall) wanted it longer. One brave anonymous tester determined that it will hold 230 lbs. My next move will be to replace the 600 lb. spectra end cords with lighter spectra. I've used 130 lb test for similar adjustable hammocks in the past. The hammock currently weighs about 10 oz., with dynaglide suspension whoopies. The next step after that will be to insulate it with down, using a bottom layer and baffles of CT.03K.08. Projected final weight will be under 2 lb.
    I would most def "LOVE" to check out this creation!

    I have been giving some thought into making one as I can tape it as I have "NO" injector skills, and tape works better IMO!

    Color me impressed! I got to try it and it was very comfortable. The mini whoopie sling adjustment cords were very cool!
