    Looks pretty solid. What's the paracord for? Whipping/tying the ends?

    Good luck on the project!

    Lots of paracord for whipping though.


    I love the stealth look here and am waiting for the finished pics! What plans are you following?

    Wow - loaded question. So many variables, how tall you are, length of hammock, how the end was gathered, foot box or no footbox, ridgeline added, suspension angle, etc.

    No-see-um will help with floppy sides if you attach it, that is if you go the loose route.

    Friends or group hangs may help you test out designs-
