    RunningFeather pointed you to the thread that gives the background.
    I've got to admit that when I saw the pictures I wasn't impressed.
    Heck, I even saw videos of jerry chairs in use and still couldn't figure out what the big deal was. Seemed like more trouble than they were worth.

    Then K45Auto asked me to make a pair of Jerry Chairs for him.
    I tried one before sending to him and instantly understood why there was such fuss over them.
    They may not look very comfortable, but they sure are.
    I especially like that you can position them such that there is a very nice head rest to lean back against.

    Also, since I'm gradually morphing into a gram weenie, I like that they are light.
    The one's I've made are all under two ounces.
    The chair I'm about to send to MyTeaThor is even less, as I've figured out a lighter way to attach the seat pad. Looking at around 1.6oz.

    Snake Skins don't have pockets to hold your suspension lines and are made of sil.
    Mine are made of a mesh that is breathable.
    Similar designs in some ways, but very different in application, due to the different material.

    has to do with topic concentration- hammocks outside, other stuff inside, so hammock info is not diluted.
    (totally worth the donation, if you've got 10 bucks kicking around...less than 1 dollar per month!)
