12910Just Tested Risk's Test Hammock
- Feb 23, 2006I bought some fabric from the Cheap-Mart $1.00 bin. But I couldn't
find any polypropylene webbings. I went to another fabric shop and all
I could find were 1 inch cotton straps.
I put the test hammock together in a few minutes and went down to the
park to test it out. I hung it low to the ground so if it broke I
wouldn't break my tail bone. I sat down slowly adding weight to the
thing. Snap! It broke. It was the el cheapo cotton straps. I'll have
to order some 1.5 inch poly stuff later.
But I put about 3/4 of my weight into the hammock before the strapping
snapped. I liked the way it felt I wish it would have held my weight
because the sun was doing down right there along the river. It would
have been a nice way to spend the dusk.
Any I'm sold. I'm probably buy some poly webbing to fully test it,
'cause you can't beat nine bucks for a hammock.
