There is something to be said for testing your hammock before hopping in. My homemade hammock stand’s anchor gave out and I flopped on my back. CRAP! This was going to be yet another test kit… I had been able to get my big three down to about 4 pounds and I’m kinda regretting it.
It’s easier to tie a tarp to a bush than it is a hammock to the same bush.Another experiment that failed was my polycryo tarp. It’s approximately 7x9 but even with the sag there is no way to cover my 10’ hammock. Overall it looks like it might fit.
