- I wanted to thank everyone for the answers on the material. I will skip the
Silnylon, since it seems to be too fragile, and while Spectra seems great, I
think it may be a bit cost prohibitive and it is special order only. I think
I will try the waterproof oxford cloth or cordura. As my testing continues
through the winter (well when I find something that works) I will let
everyone know. I basically want something that packs down fairly well so
that I can keep in in my saddlebags. But since this will be more punishment
than most hammocks will have to withstand, it may be useful information for
anyone looking for a "bombproof" hammock and/or tarp.
Thanks again for the help.
