18002[Hammock Camping] Re: hammock bivy idea!
- Sep 9, 2007I've posted a diagram of my cocoon/insulated pod here
My design has no zippers, just a drawstring at both ends, so it needs
to be over the hammock before the hammock is pitched. The head-end
drawstring is elastic so I can slide it over me without fiddling. If
I use a ridgeline, it goes outside the cocoon just to hold up the
bugnet. My hammock is a homemade Speer-type.
