    Complete DIY setup

    Having never touched a sewing machine, I decided to jump headfirst into MYOG. So I started with a 1.6 hexon hammock, followed by a .9 xenon sil winter tarp, next comes my UQ and TQ! I gotta say, I read how challenging xenon/membrane is to work with, but I was in no way prepared for how hard it truly is for a brand new seamster.IMG_20180726_202720531.jpgIMG_20180726_203510341.jpgIMG_20180726_202038829.jpgIMG_20180726_202737030.jpg
    I'm super happy with how it all turned out.

    Total weight of hammock, suspension, tarp, and all lines is around 2lbs.

    I knew exactly how I wanted everything, I decided to go ahead and build it right the first time, instead of spending more to upgrade later. Only problem is, now I'm hooked and want to make more! I've gotten my total pack weight down to 22lbs for a 3 day trip, I believe after my quilts, I'll shave another 10-15oz then I'm going to look into making a DIY ULA clone pack

    Yes, my pack weighs 70lbs, but it's all light weight gear....
