    I like that idea, for a fireproof hammock. My hood is very stretchy & Nomex will melt, it just wont sustain fire & it takes a lot to melt it.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Make a hammock out of cheap WalMart nylon (fabric of unknown origin), use a wool blanket UQ and TQ, and don't worry about it.

    Hey DocBurN,
    I remember a post for DIY "netted hammock"...
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...=weave+hammock

    http://www.nightshaderose.com/netting/intro.php

    So, now just get some paracord or fire retardant rope and weave your own.
    Let us know how it works out for you.

    -Are you doing a 5lbs. survival trip in Canadian winter?
    -What kind of temps are you anticipating with your "survival trip"?

    This time, we will wait till its warmer.. we went in february 2010 at -11 celcius.. this time, we will wait till its around 0 celcius and more..

    but still.. even in a warm summer, i would like to lay in something comfortable near the fire at night as long as it fit in the 5lbs max limit and I dont have to remove something vital like my knife to take the hammock

    Yep that would be my suggestion too. Why try and re-invent the wheel? If you're driving in the snow, you put chains on you don't buy a new car!
