9313RE: [Hammock Camping] australian heritage fleet hammock
- Jun 1, 2005Slowhike,
I have the same questions regarding material to use. I was thinking of using
silk, Cordura, or pack cloth. I used some Cordura when I built my pack, and
it was difficult to rip out stiching in this material.
Instead of rope edges, I was considering using 1" poly straps that would
allow zig-zag stitching and bar tacking.
I also thought of adding a bottom layer of 1.1 ripstop, to hold a pad.
Any suggestions from experienced builders?

Subject: [Hammock Camping] australian heritage fleet hammock
a few weeks ago, someone showed a link for the above hammock w/
spreader bars(someone else said it looked like what you`d see flipper
haging in). if someone wanted to expriment w/ a lightweight model like
that, what weight fabric would you guess would be needed? i would
think a really thin fabric would be more likly to fail since body
weight would be pulling down along the sides where the hammock folds
over the rope & is sewn back to its self (perhaps w/ a double hem). is
any one else working on that idea? thanks...slowhike
