    Gear Storage in a non BB hammock

    I love my BB. I love the shelf, but lately I have been having trouble sleeping on my back, especially in my hammock. Makes me snore and I don't snore at home. I use a CPAP machine for sleep apnea now at home and I now see the advantage of breathing right all night.
    So.... I tried another hammock that I can sleep on my side in. I made a stretch side hammock and have one coming from WildernessLogics, too. But I knew I would miss the storage that's so handy in my BB, so I made this...
    It is a large snakeskin-like design with a large wire tie used on both the opening and the length of the top. This keeps it open all the time. There is simply a short length of bungee cord sewed in to make a loop that forms a half-closed door so nothing can slip out. Hope you like it.
    See also the mosquito net I made for it at the end of this first page.

    That is interestingly simple; maybe, too simple.

    Very cool. I have something relatively similar but open at both ends, edged in grosgrain (which keeps it open somewhat).

    Yes, it's hung from the ridge line.

    I love it. Easy in, easy out. You need no dexterity to use, good for cold weather, easy for warm weather. Love it.

    And here is the mosquito netting for my stretch side hammocks. I made two. You don't even have to hem the edges except for where the cut is 90 degrees to the length, so only about a foot of hem on each end. Full coverage for 5 ounces.
