DIY Gear: Hammock & Bugnet




What do you think about this video?

Christina Haydel: Hi there! I just want to give a huge thumbs up for the nice video information youve got here on this post. I will probably be coming back to your vid for more soon.

Richard Bucker: interesting comment: http://www.dutchwaregear.com/25-feet-of-dynaglide.html the author writes: "This does not meet out minimums for hammock suspensions."

Richard Bucker: I gotta say I'm very impressed... and not having a sewing machine nor the skills I'm jealous. Especially since I just paid about 190USD for a ENO hammock, straps and tarp. Given that the difference between your project and retail is manufacturing labor costs and material. Did you save any money? How much?

ArtOFabric: this is superb

thefabricexchange: im so thankful for this

Juan Francisco Leyva: Hi. This is a great and simple setup you have here. I'd like to build my own, using whoopie slings as a suspension system. How long are the whoopie slings you are using to hang your hammock?

Brad Cousino: would you be interested in building one for me????

Olivia Chastain: How many yards are tulle did you use to make the bug net?

ggglassman: Thanks for saying that the bug net was made out of tulle.  I have been thinking about how I'm going to bug proof my bunk in my sailboat and I don't want to spend the money on a bug tent that won't fit anyway.  I can make something that will work and won't stretch my bank account with tulle but I had never heard about it until viewing this. I went to JoAnn Fabrics looking for tulle and they told me that they sell actual bug netting so I ended up buying that. It was a little bit more money but I think it is well worth it because it's more durable, not much heavier, and I won't have to listen to it from my buddies. Plus it was on sale 30% off and one of the pieces had a small rip, so that one was another 50% off. What can I say..

teitzy83: If it is hard to close the netting from the outside how will it be to close it from the inside? Nice video, thanks!

FurryACiD: Thank you so much for posting this video. I just finished my hammock today!

OzClawhammer: Geez that's light

iswatman: How wide is this hammock? Does it lay flat? I am also a side sleeper and I just can't get that feeling in my ENO double nest, it was a gift. I think I would also like it to be longer, how much longer will you make the next one and why?

Joe Brewer: Hiking from Georgia to Maine.

Joe Brewer: Not sure, as I've never tested it. I would say at least 200 lbs, maybe more. The weakest point would be the 1.7 oz/yd ripstop nylon, but I'm not sure what the break strength on it would be. Maybe google could help.

Luke Calls: What is a at through hike

Erik Salazar: Yes, how much weight can it hold? I'm 6 foot 215lbs

70CadillacMan: how much weight can it hold?

schitjob: Thank you for posting this! I'm new to camping, but we have a Jo-Ann Fabrics store down the road and I can work a needle and thread as much as the next guy. Your vid has boosted my confidence that I can make this.

Joe Brewer: Yup, plenty big and still comfortable.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
