    Dangerbird 60 ?'s

    I'm in the market for a new hammock and it looks like DB will be it.

    Has anyone optioned it with a 1.0/1.1 main body and an inner made from the crinkle taffeta? Any opinions on this combination?

    Currently have a HHHL/SS. I like the idea of having something less clammy on the inside.

    Thanks.

    I would suggest using a 1.8oz Nylon Taffeta on the inside layer with an outer layer of 1.0 or 1.1oz ripstop. Feels a little nicer against the skin.

    My latest personal hammock is a double layer Nylon Taffeta. (Nite Grid Camo outside & Black inside) It's pretty sweet.

    That Nylon Taffeta is awesome on my RoamingGnome 60.

    Unfortunately, the only photo I have isn't very detailed.


    The fabrics used are from OWF


    Details about this particular test hammock:
    I took this one for a week-long hike on the AT this past July. My main goal was quick and easy setup. It's an integrated net hammock, but has no internal ridgeline to hold the net up and no side tie-outs. The tarp features an integrated Lash-it ridgeline built through the ridgeline seam and connected directly to cinch buckle suspension. If there's interest, I can start a new thread so we don't de-rail this one.

    Congrats on a great hammock. I have a hammock stand on my back porch and sleep outside in my DB dbl as much as possible. Wondering where I can store my high-dollar bed and move stand to bedroom.

    Seriously, I'm considering doing the same thing. Rigging a suspension system in our spare bedroom.
