Customer Project: The Gibson double layer hammock

by David "Fujibilly" Brashears

  • This is my first real DIY project (after the proof of concept stuff sacks, LOL). I wanted a double layer hammock that I can use that is still light enough to be a practical option for longer trips.  I decided to use the colors in my Gibson guitar case for a little fun.  I also used the two contrasting colors to make a double-ended stuff sack. 

    Here are some of the key specs:

    • Length: 11'6" 
    • Width: 60"
    • Construction: Gathered end (triple stitched channel design)
    • Suspension: DIY whoopie slings from 7/32" silver Amsteel Blue. Dutch Dyneema tree straps and titanium toggles.
    • Stuff Sack: Matching material contrasted double-ended stuff sack.

    I love the way it turned out and everything that Ripstop by the Roll provided was premium quality and well-packaged.  Thanks for giving me the confidence to take on this project.  I love my new custom hammock!
