16471Re: slowhike`s down hammock version one (v1)
- Dec 5, 2006Tim,
I'm sorry, I guess I'm going to be difficult <grin>. I can't figure
out enough of the specifics of your version 1 to comment so I'll
throw out a bunch of questions and see if it leads to anything.
Is the hammock fabric 1.9 oz rip stop nylon (RSN) or is it 1.1 RSN or
is it some other material and is it calendered and/or have a DWR
coating? Is the down contained in one large compartment like Rick's
warm hammock or does it have several baffled chambers along the lines
of what Jeff was doing at one time? What are the dimensions of the
hammock, the insulation and the dimensions where the shell attaches
to the hammock? Some tougher questions that you may not know and I
may not know what difference it makes either: what size needle (and
was it a universal or ball point), what type of thread did you use
(polyester, nylon, cotton, etc.) and do you have any idea of the
thread thickness, diameter, etc?
In photo 1 of 6, "rip across shell attachment seen from inside", I
can see a zigzag stitch but it doesn't appear that the tear is at the
stitching, although it seems that it would have started at the
stitching somewhere. And it doesn't look like the hammock fabric is
a rip stop material. Are those observations correct?
