    Talking Accessories are a hammocks best friend

    Couple things I whipped up tonight... kudos to all thos who have gone before me, I don't think I would have come up with this stuff w/o the muses here.

    Peak Strap, buddy of mine indicated displeasure out of sliding down in the mock, I made this up for him. I don't need so much, as I hang feet a little higher. In true military fashion, I shall call it the "Strap, Peak, Assisted Lift", or STAL for short.




    Kudos to RJCress, he is the inspiration for this PEAK BAG


    Mesh bottom in bag


    Peak Bag opening, 2 pieces grosgrain on top of each other wrapped in ripstop edge


    RL organizer, last hang difficult to see in black bag, so made this in Hi-Vis mesh (stretches also!

    That's great!

    The craftsmanship and design that peak bag looks great. I might have a new project for my wife the next time she is feeling crafty.

    Love the strap idea. Makes for a good fixed point for body adjustments. Great looking gear all around.

    Thanks all, this stuff sure is addictive.... the strap item could come in useful, I usually grabbed the sides of the hammock above me and hoisted myself, in trial yesterday slid me right up.
