    Well, there are a lot of stressed areas on the fabric after almost 8 years. Not bad for $1.50/yard Walmart ripstop nylon.

    All together, I guess there is enough "ventilation" on both sides to catch a good breeze.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    We just used this for one of our students who wanted a hammock for his birthday. Absolutely one of the nicest fabrics Iíve laid in and very easy to sew.

    Made a GE hammock for a friend with 1.7 Robic. Of course, I field-tested it in the backyard. Love it. Just the right amount of stretch and the fabric feels wonderful. Liked it so much, I ordered some 1.7 Robic for myself but I haven't sewn it yet. Try the Robic 1.7. If you don't like it, one of your friends will surely be happy to take it off your hands.
