    Here's the link to what was in the group buy. I got in on that and made a nice 11 foot double layer hammock with the Knotty Mod. It's my favorite hammock right now!

    Mine was consistent at a 68" width, it is really thin, I can almost read through it. i'm going to try making a couple of Ridge line organizers from the 22" scrap that came off the roll.

    Well that will explain why I never received an answer about being able to stop by the warehouse, Manga moved out of Bergen, NJ and headed South

    Thanks much for the link!
    It's the simple things that get me. Like just typing in www.magnafabrics.com Huh? Nope! First thing to do is google, then bing, then yahoo, then come back here and see how stupid I am.

    Exactly what I was thinking about though, making myself a double layer with it.
    What color goes good with camo? Orange or Red?

    I made, or rather had Yukon make, my inner layer black with the outer layer this ACU. It is so crazy thin that if you used a bright color like red it would show through the camo. It also has 0 (read ZERO) wind resistance, so I chose to use a calendered inner layer with the shiney side out.

    I have 4 Yds of Woodland that I was thinking of using for the inner. My son wants a dbl layer, so one more item on the list. Foliage Green or maybe OD Green would work well too.

    I used this fabric to make a top cover for my WBBB a couple of years ago and it's performance has been excellent in that function due to its breathability. I was in on the group buy and I'm making a full hammock sock with some of my material as well as a double layer hammock.

    I'm also using it to add Hangnout's foot boxes to some of my other hammocks.

    That's a good idea! I have a lot left over from the group buy and may do a sock as well.

    I finished a sock some months ago with the material I got from the first small group-buy and was able to give it a try outside. Here's a shot (yes, it is a widow-maker):


    It does wonders! I had no breathing issues at all and it absolutely helps raising up the surrounding temperature. I had no thermometer with me but after a good night's sleep at around 0C (frost in the morning) it was definitely much warmer within the sock than outside.
