      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?

      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
