Re: [Hammock Camping] Blackbishop Sack, Slowhike's end caps
- not bad... not bad atal.
the end caps i had at hot springs my 1st attempt & i belive i`ll be making another set w/ a few improvements, but now i belive i`ll be putting a draw string around the mouth of each & use them as the stuff sack like you did.
i don`t think i pulled them out to demonstrate at hot springs but i had snake skins on the hammock... they were just hidden by the end caps.
but w/ the draw strings i could do w/o the skins.
i suppose if i was ready to pack-up & the end caps were still wet (even though i can shake most of the water off), i could put the end cap bags into a turky size oven bag, then put it inside the pack. ...tim

on the hammock support like snakeskins. I just made one and it looks
pretty useful - just a silnylon stuffsack with a small hole melted
into the bottom, really. It's big enough to hold my insulated hammock
and top quilt, so I can leave my Python Skins and quilt's compression
sack for a net weight savings.
It also looks like it might provide a small bit of coverage for wind-
blown rain, which made me think of Tim's end caps. Why not put a
drawstring around the open end and use those end caps as a stuff
sack? Pretty convenient and would save the weight of an extra sack or
skins. Just a thought.
