Ok. I think I am finally done with this one, and can start on the next. I overcast all the seams, redid the suspension connections with a Steel 2" ring inside the hammock, and a poly 1" strap doubled over and covered with a friction sheath. The red tag on one is to mark the head end.
It all goes in the side bag, I added compression straps. You can see in 1 photo, I added loops to the strap, and sewed them inside the seam of the bag. That way, the straps did not pull at the seam, it's a straight pull on the strap. Added a loop so I can hook the whole kit and caboodle on to a pack with a biner.
Total weight on a postal scale was 3.12 pounds, which seems pretty heavy, but I built it as stout as I could, and this one is for canoeing.
