If this has already been covered please direct me to the proper thread but I wasn't able to find anything so here goes...is there any downfalls to making a hammock out of sil nylon, specifically a double layer hammock? I only ask because I have a ray jardine tarp kit that I bought a couple years ago when I was still a ground sleeper with the intent on making the tarp setup and just never got around to it. Now that I'm a hammock hanger I'm not quite sure it will be long enough to fully cover the average hammock(it's only 108 in. long). The kit has two pieces that are each 108 by 55 in. so it would make a dandy double layer hammock once sewn together, I'm just not sure about how breathable it will be since its coated with sil. Would there be any moisture issues on the inside of the hammock because of the coating?
I'm mostly toying with this idea because my current hammock, while functional, is a tad short for my liking and I would like to make a longer one which the material from the tarp kit would allow me to do. I also am happy with my tarp at the moment. It's a cheap blue Walmart tarp so it is on the heavy and bulky side but beyond that it serves my purposes very well. Any thoughts on this would be helpful, thanks folks!
