    That is a gorgeous hammock. Can you tell us more about the Multicam fabric? What kind of fabric and where did you get it?

    the multicam is 70D 1.9oz DWR treated ripstop. It is also IR compliant. I bought it direct from Duro industries, currently the only place you can get the breathable multicam ripstop. You have to buy in 5 yard increments. At 6.68 a yard plus shipping it's a little pricey, but I have a thing for multicam.

    The fabric feels really nice. No stretch. The inside layer is the 1.5oz ripstop calendared fabric from www.DIYGearsupply.com. They have everything you'd need to make a hammock, and great prices too. I weigh 260 lbs, and this hammock holds me without any trouble. It is the most comfortable hammock I've made to date.

    Cool. Thanks! I too have a thing for Multicam. I'm not quite ready to make a DIY hammock but when I am I may consider grabbing some of that fabric. Maybe I'll save it until I know I can make a good hammock
