Slice of Heaven 2.0
After a horrid sound and a giant hole took out my Slice of Heaven 1.0 Hammock, I made some changes and upgrades and have just finished Slice of Heaven 2.0! The first change I made was instead of using the same 1.1 ripstop Nylon I switched it to 1.9 ripstop nylon. The lighter material held pretty well right up until I tried to shorten it to 7ft in length. Something about the shorter length lowered the weight limit lower than the weight of my body! So I bought heavier fabric and kept it at the shorter length.
The second thing I did was add the famous stretchy side modification! By adding two lengths of stretchy cord to the sides of the bottom half of my hammock I’ve increased the cocoon feeling without compromising on the flatness of my hammock! Also I made it out of a bungee-like string so that I don’t have to worry about it breaking if I get up out of the hammock without releasing the tension. Like, for example, I groggily get out to use the restroom and forget to loosen the sides, they will just stretch instead of snapping. The best part is that this modification is that because it curves the sides up slightly it makes keeping my sleeping bag and pillow in the hammock with me! The final modification I made was shortening it from the original 9ft to 7.5ft. Since I’m 5’3″ the shorter length works a bit better for me!
