    I would think looking to Clark JH, and their Mosquito proof bed material.

    Unless there is a number in front of the word "proof", I never believe it.
    Just varying levels of resistance.

    I'd like to see some kind of bio-luminescent bacteria incorporated into some line that could be used for tarp tieouts. Never trip over guylines again! I wouldn't even hazard a guess as to what will come over the next 5 years. Threads like the one linked here are a lot of fun to go back to and see what was going on 'back in the day'. Amazing how many things we sort of take for granted, that haven't been around all that long. Thank goodness for the creative minds that spend too much time around here.

    Speaking of "history",

    Who first started using Amsteel for suspension systems? I don't go back far enough to have seen that thread.

    Well I can't say anything about who discovered it here on the HF but I remember using it in the army back in 97ish...it was all the craze then as well.
    We used it primarily for what it was intended, rigging, splicing, tow ropes, winch line, cargo netting, etc, etc.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    Here I was hoping we would just have hammocks that hang using some sort of fancy magnet that repels the earths natural magnetic fields.
