I'm also going to put up a quick page on sewing one of these things together, along with sewing the down quilt in the photos.

    Ok I finally got the PC photo thing figured out. Below are the pics of my hammock sock. Unfortunately I do not have a kayak to put in the foreground.

    Inside foot view.


    Outside opened view.


    Outside closed head end view.


    Outside view of foot end with McCat Deluxe tarp.


    The bottom view shows the bottom edge of the foot end a little exposed to the weather. The picture was taken from an angle, so it is not as bad as it looks. I am going to go back and trim this down. This should help keep it a little warmer inside. I will not be losing any heat do to direct convection heat lose with the outside air. The tarp will be able to block most of the wind before it hits the sock. This should get it out of the weather and save some weight.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Looks great HE. Is that weather treated cloth on the bottom (green) and untreated fabric (gray) on the top?

    Yes, the green is the only treated stuff. It has the DWR finish. The grey is uncoated. It has a rough surface to it.

    It wasn't intentional to use uncoated like that. It was the only material I have. In retrospect I think it helps the sock breath. I have it sewn so I can flip it and put the grey on the bottom. I might try a night like that to see if I notice a condensation difference.

    Is that your HH? If so, how did you deal with the slit entry? I'm planning on one of these for my Speer-type, but it seemed like the slit might be a hassle...

    Great looking project, HE! How much does it weigh?

    Jeff it weighs in at 10.5 oz. I little heavier than yours. I think I could save an oz off when I trim it.

    BB, the hammock is my DIY Speer style hammock made out of nylon taffeta. I am still playing around with the homemade asym cut and whipping. That is probibly why it resembles the HH. I think I am getting close to having something that works.

    A little off topic, but...

    I was thinking about adding one or two shock cords (with cordlocks) in sleeves around the girth of my sock. That would allow for adjustment for different conditions, i.e. underquilt/no underquilt etc. Just to cut down on the extra air space when not needed. Thoughts?

    Interesting thought.

    I don't think it would work for what I am using my sock for. It is only going to be part of the cold weather gear. If it was buggy or only in the 40's at night, I probibly would not use it. There is only a couple inches of space between the bottom of my nest and the sock. I don't think I would notice a difference if I pulled it tighter. Mine is big only because I have my ridgeline high. I don't like things right up against my face.

    Sock for HH

    I've read these forums until my eyes are blurry....

    Did anyone ever come up with a good pattern for a sock for a Hennessy Asym?
