    I have had thoughts of sewing grosgrain loops into the edges of my eno, and buttons on the other side, to close it up on my bottom half to hold my quilt and pad in.

    As an update, I decided to scrap my "no sew" approach. I didnt think the hemmed edges would stand up to the stress of regular use.

    So... I asked a friend to sew a couple of 1.5 foot lengths of grosgrain on the edge with a channel for running the cord. Definitely a better approach and shouldnt tear or rip.

    Going to sleep in it tonight and post photos tomorrow.

    I had sewn a 4 foot zipper on an ENO double and it works great for keeping a pad and a sleeping bag in.

    Here are the newly sewn edges. Basically just about 1.5 feet of material stitched onto the hammock with stretchy cord run through and cordlocks at each end. The material came from an old couch cover that happened to match pretty well.



    I also removed the attached bag.
