    MY DIY Winter Recliner

    I just tested out my own Winter Recliner:



    The Suspension system is from my first hammock (smr decender rings)and is overkill(6600lbs rated straps) but since i dont have money for dutchware i used what i had.

    Love that "used what I had" ethos.

    I figured it was only a matter of time Zmad, good job! Is it a folded full length hammock or chair length?

    Looks comfortable.
    I made a couple of those outta some rip-stop as an "intro to sewing" project. I'm getting around to making a couple Gerry(Jerry) Chairs as a dual purpose seat / psuedo underquilt kinda thing ... lol
