DIY Hammock Notes

Making your own hammock is an easy DIY project as it is mostly a matter of sewing a bunch of long straight stitches. Once you have successfully made one thing, it is only naturally to try something else more complex and so the process goes.

Where to get stuff

Some projects

An idea that has intrigued myself (and many others) is the concept of an integrated hammock and underquilt. This is not trivially simple because if the insulation gets compressed, the whole thing becomes useless. But as anyone who has used an underquilt knows, getting it rigged properly is tricky and all-important.
