My New Hammock!!!! MYOG
When I first opened the package from DIY Gear Supply I was skeptical that the 1.1 ripstop nylon I had ordered in a beautiful blue was durable enough to actually hold my weight and the 50ft of 7/64 Amsteel seemed thin. I was also skeptical about my abilities to work with such a light and slick material but after about 5 hours of sewing 2 tree straps and a channel end hammock out of it all, the finished product is pretty sweet and has passed all my tests and expectations! I sewed channels and strung the Amsteel through to gather the ends like Knotty shows in a video on Hammock Forums and combined it with a Single Line Suspension system that I got from Headchange4u posted on Hammock Forums. I’m pretty pleased with the results.
