    Water proof or not??

    simple, for a hammock what is the benefits of water proof or not water proof rip-stop?

    I do not want water proof for breath-ability issues, but coated is a lot cheaper?

    I like uncoated for my hammock body so I don't get sweaty or clammy.

    You're shopping at the wrong place. Try DIY Gear Supply.

    Unless you like taking a bath... go for the breathable...

    If it's Joann's, find a coupon...

    oh, and 1.1 OD Green seconds at DIY Gear Supply is wonderful!
