16289RE: [Hammock Camping] Re: fabric, and old topic but I need some advice
- Nov 8, 2006i`m planning to make some thing like that to go over the down hammock i just finished.
my plan is that the ends (about 15-20" from each end) will be water proof.
the bottom will probably be water proof (but at least DWR).
the top part (probably starting at the hammock`s top edge), will be 1.1 nylon w/ a DWR treatment.
still working on a few details like the entrance part, but i belive i`m right w/ rick on the velcro thing. i`ve never sewed a zipper in anything, but then last year i`d never sewed anything really <G>. tim

I was thinking about using sil-nylon, and using velcro to close it up
instead of a zipper. I was thinking about adding a small patch of netting
above my face to control the condensation. Do you guys think that will be
enough, or will I loose too much heat through the opening? I could just use
ripstop but I would like the extra waterproofing.
