    best hammock socks or DIY socks

    need a little help - throw it all out there and tell me your opinions about hammock socks. have you made one yourself, if so post me some pics and give some details. which OEM has or makes the best hammock socks. after reading about Jeff's out door -7F adventure it just might be another piece of gear i must add to my collection.

    I haven't made one yet but it is on my To-Do list. I was planning to make just a bottom sock using one layer of IX and one layer of breathable nylon with DWR on the outside of it.

    I'll be watching for what others have to say.

    i'm curious to know if anyone has any patterns before i go off and scrap some material trying to figure it out. i can use some heavy plastic sheeting first like i did on an UQ.

    can you buy the IX from someone?

    Only MMG and Papa Smurf make socks right now. Papa Smurf donates 5% back to the community, usually on the form of giveaways.

    Eventually, I'll have the design of the new model up...I like the side much better than the top zip that's on my site right now.

    Good luck finding what you need!

    I don't believe I have seen Papa Smurf's socks*, is there a thread here or does he have a site?

    I don't think he has a website up...I'd email him and ask.
