What do you think about this video?

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.

one234569and10: Nice setup, and color scheme. Cause you know, color means everything :P I think the only thing I am unsure about is that the bug net is not more permanent. Bugs could possibly get trapped in as you get in, or come in from the foot end. Still pretty cool!

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