    Hello from Seattle

    My husband and I have done a decent amount of backpacking but were tired of being unable to sleep on the backpacking sleeping pads. We just bought a Kammock Mantis UL to try out on a car camping trip (we each took a night in it) and are converts. We are now deciding what hammock to get as a second. I am a decent seamstress and I have taken on projects like baby carriers in the past so I am tempted to dive into making my own. I already made an underquilt with 2 of the Costco down blankets, the directions sent me down the rabbit hole to this forum. I know nothing about hammock materials and construction so I welcome any advice, I'll also be reading the forum to get ideas. I'm 5'4" 130 and he's 5'9" 205 if that influences recommendations.

    Here’s a good place to get started:

    I made my first hammock a few weeks ago using the Monolite fabric. Very cool!

    Hello from just north of Portland and welcome!! I've used in the past to get my ripstop and tree strap material (this was a few years back) and they were great! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions while you create.
