    Nice. I've been hoping some cuben hammocks would be build.
    The fabric might not breath but for winter hanging I don't see that as much of an issue. Blue foam pads don't breath either but its not really an issue.

    Wasn't there some aluminized cuben available? It IS mylar so it should be doable. I'm thinking for deep deep cold it might be a great material since you get a built in space blanket.

    Now I just want to see someone create a cuben bridgeskin

    That has always been my hold up in trying such a hammock. I tried some more "normal" material that was lighter than 1.1 and ended up abrading through it fairly easy. I know how easy cuben can abrade if given half a chance.
    NO SNIVELING!

    WOW!!!
    Just after seeing the pics in the first post I know that I'm going to have to build my own. Would ask to know about the placement & performance of the baffles. I would be nervous about the fiber supporting my size & weight (270/6'6") but figure that the cuben could be bonded to a layer of ripstop to solve that. If need be.

    Seems like a lot to ask for. But if you have any of the cad work you did for this, it would be awesome to see. Especially anything on the dual differential cut.
    Perhaps in the mad scramble for sexy light weightness I and everyone else has forgotten the most important function of gear not that it must weight nothing, look good and be cheap, but that it must keep you alive and increases your survivability.
