    Just finished a Magna UQP/Poncho from some spare rip stop I had. I didn't have any sil, so I made my own coating using the instructions from the 'make your own sil' thread. I even made a detachable magna hood that attaches to the magnets on the head hole for when its in UQP mode.

    I'll let the sil cure and give it a test. Hopefully its waterproof enough for a poncho. If not it should still work well enough for an UQP.

    Now I just need to convert my hammock to use magnets, but that's a project for tomorrow.

    Hammock magnetism!

    I just finished a new lower layer made from silnylon. Gonna love the weight savings and packability I can already tell. Has anyone else tried making one if these yet? I had some folks who seemed like they were warming up their thread injectors but never heard any more.

    Fairly new to hanging, read through the thread and love your idea. Thinking of giving it a try when i can scrape together the cash for all the pieces. Have one question on the magnet polarity though. Did you specifically align all your magnets or do they have enough room in their pockets to flip as needed?

    There is plenty of room for the magnets to flip as needed.

    Got a chance to see the Magna-Hammock deployed at the Uwharrie Nat Forest Hang. Can't say enough about how sweet HH's design turned out- easy to slide a pad in, the magnets ARE superlight, as light as a 1/2" washer I'd say, they find each other easily to snap back together, just very cool and very nicely constructed! Rare earth is the way to go with the magnets- way to go, HiknHanger.
