    MMG XL Nylon Sock & PapaSmurf XL Hammock

    A customer in Japan asked PapaSmurf to make a XL hammock, and asked me to make a nylon sock to fit it. Before shipping it across the Pacific Ocean, the customer asked me to made a video and let him know what I think of the hammock.

    First of all, the workmanship of PapaSmurf is outstanding! The hammock is an excellent piece of gear. It's also huge...

    I like the way the bugnet zips off and stows in a bag that is built into the end of the hammock. There is another bag built into the other end, and the Molly Mac Gear Nylon Hammock Sock fits inside that one.

    Using this hammock as a chair is wonderful! There is no need for a separate foot rope, as you will see in the video.

    The MMG nylon sock that I made for this hammock is a scaled up version of the standard Sock with SEEP. I made the bottom with a larger volume than usual, partly to make it wider, and partly to guarantee that any UQ will fit without being compressed.

    I like the PapaSmurf XL Hammock a lot. It was a challenge to expand my patterns and make the sock fit. It turned out well! Check it all out in this video!

    I've got a PapaSmurf Hammock being built right now, and I can't wait! It's a version of the "DangerBird" [I'm sort of hoping it comes with it's own name though].

    Well guys, I'm the lucky bugger over in Japan waiting on this baby to arrive. I'm hoping that not only will this be the most comfortable hammock I've ever experienced, but one of the warmest too! Both Papa Smurf and MacEntyre were amazing to work with. They have not only gone out of their way to make this the best customer customer service experience for me, but constantly communicated with me to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. They even worked together to make sure that both the hammock and the sock would work together perfectly, and coordinated getting everything to me over here in Japan! Hats off to both of you. Pics and vid coming to prove it all. Huge kudos to Papa smurf and Mac! Thanks guys!

    That's one fine looking hammock and sock. very nicely done. Thanks for the video Mac. Make me all giddy and excited to use my MMG sock this winter.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
