16465slowhike`s down hammock version one (v1)
- Dec 4, 2006if you look in the photo album "slowhike down hammock", you`ll see a
color drawing of how i put together my 1st down hammock.
also you`ll see a picture of the finished hammock.
i wasn`t really happy w/ the thinner strips of insulation where the
side compartments met the bottom compartment, but it was plenty warm in
the back yard at around 39-40°f & would have went lower.
but i awoke about 1:00am to a slow RIIIPPPP!
i had alowed extra fabric for the outer shell, but not enough.
apparantly, through the night the hammock body continued to strech
until it began to pull the shell tight. see photos.
i decided to try another using a double hammock of 1.1 oz ripstop
like shown in the next drawing (v2).
i`m hoping to get some feed back from ed, dave, & any others that
have experimented w/ this kind of thing... or questions from anyone
that`s just curious<g>. ...tim
