Couple of days ago, I finished out making and rigging a Momentum 90 MR mini ripstop hammock. Previously, I had posted the progress of making a momentum 90 T 11' hammock in this post.
This hammock started out with 120" long x 58.5" wide piece of momentum 90 MR material from Thru-Hiker suppliers, http://thru-hiker.com/materials/breathable.php
Total weight of the fabric with the sides and ends rolled hemmed with 1/2" pockets weighed in at 5.9 oz's. Rigged with RL and 7/64 dia amsteel whoopies from http://www.whoopieslings.com/ and using also the Nano 23 Beiners they offer you, plus Dutch Quilt Hooks from dutchware.outdoortrailgear.com and also off the Whoopies was hanging a couple of Dutch's small nite led lites. From the RL you will also see a Wilderness Logic's Gear pouch http://wildernesslogics.com/GEAR-POU...GEAR-POUCH.htm and all of this stuffed into a Cuben Hammock stuff sack from Zpacks.com. I also included on this hammock the Knotty Mod of which will be a pick below. Total weight rigged out with everything including also in the cuben stuff sack 2 nlyon tree straps, and 2-4' amsteel extenders with loops, and a piece of 3' x 3' folded 6 mil plastic ground cloth,,, came it at a very nice lite 16.1 oz. So if your a gram weinie, you could lighten the load even more by leaving some of the bells and whistles I am using on it at home.
The Momentum 90 MR ripstop fabric, after sleeping on it for the past couple of nites I find, at the 10' length, very comfy,,with no leg stress. This is the first 10' length hammock I have found the best comfort in. The feel of the ripstop is a dash different that the Momentum Tafetta in which,,I think the tafetta feels warmer and softer than ripstop,,,but,,I really like the feel of the Momentum MR Ripstop as well and especially am amazed at the total comfort as it gives just enough stretch in the leg area to have no calf or knee pressure that I felt in the 5-6 other hammocks I had previously used. The fininished weight of both hammocks,,this one coming in at 16.1 oz. and the Momentum 90 T 11' hammock coming in at 19. 1 totally rigged and loaded are considerably lighter than my other hammocks as well of which I was hoping for as I am saving quite a few oz's of pack weight using these materials. Now,,which hammock do I use the most of as I love the both of them??? Below are a few pics of the coyote brown Momentum 90 MR mini ripstop hammock.
