    Please bring that to the northern hang! If only to bring it to the last night's campsite so we can all see it. That thing looks amazing dude and I'm sure all of us would want to see it. I'll probably put that in my video too. Really awesome job!

    I'm probably missing the obvious, but how do you compress the air out of the down when you pack your hammock.

    Extremely impressed!!! You absolutely, positively must post a video of this animal in action! You have the patience of a monk to do this project.

    THIS IS DEFINITELY THE ULTIMATE HANG!

    This looks amazing! It does pose a lot of questions and peaks some curiosity, which have been asked already I see. Great work, and great inginuity. Oh-no had a cuben tarp and didn't like the stiffness of it. The way you have the quilting sure may help with that issue.

    I hope to see some video of this in action soon!

    Others beat me to expressions of admiration. Nice job!

    BER beat me to the key question...how does this compress...or not?

    I've built a nearly-all-cuben Karo step UQ but put in endcaps of 1.1 fabric to let air in and out. It inflates itself without an assist. There's a fellow who sells an all Cuben overquilt and puts air valves in them.
