jeff... i didn`t sew a pocket on my hammock, but i did have one
(which was pretty handy) on my eagle`s nest until i trimed it down.
what i did was go w/ your idea of a gear hammock & i took my sil nylon
pack cover & put a loop on oppisite ends & made a gear hammock. it
works great. hanging against the side of the hammock i hardly know
it`s there. but if i need something, it`s right there. but now i`ve
seen your new gear hammock on jacks are better site & i`m greatly
impressed! that`s cool! thanks...slowhike
