the Benton MacKaye Trail in GA & TN. I used two layers of 1.9 oz rip-
stop nylon with DWR finish (that was the only material I had). It
worked very well. It did a good job of holding the padding in place,
it was more comfortable than sleeping directly on the pads, it was
much easier to move about in the hammock so switching from side to
back was pretty easy and there didn't seem to be any moisture build-
up on my backside. I have been planning on ordering enough 1.1 oz
material to make one out of that. I used two pieces cut to the same
dimensions and let the knot hold them together and only the outer
material had velcro for the bug netting. (I only used the bug
netting for about 2 hours on the 7 night trip). So yeah, I have
tried it and it worked really well. I got the idea from an
inexpensive "twin-layer hammock" that I bought last year that was
very un-impressive, except for the two-layer concept.

pieces of fabric instead of one thicker piece? That way it should be
possible to insert your pad between the two pieces of fabric. Anyone
tried? Good/bad idea? What do you think?
