I made a half length hammock out of this. Its like a sling chair thing. Weighs 11oz with staps. This fabric was easy to sew and is stronger than it looks. I used the hammock for a season, unfortunately due to my negligence, it got snagged and stretched the fabric. I patched over the spot and its been fine.
1.9 oz Ripstop Nylon
great ripstop, great color, quick ship.
perfect covid zoom backdrop that I can use for camping later.
Amazingly soft, beautiful color. Will be ordering again
Materials ordered: 4 yards 0.9 noseeum mesh, 4 yards 1.9 ripstop, 25 feet poly webbing
Delivery: ordered on 4/27/20 and received on 5/7/20, slightly longer than normal, but with the virus pandemic in full swing during this time, that's not too bad
What I did with the materials: Cut the 25 feet of webbing into two equal parts, folded over and bar tacked one end for a loop, making two 12.5 foot tree straps that cost only $7.25, which is a great value for very little work.
Used the 4 yards of noseeum mesh to make two HUG-style bugnets which I've come to prefer over larger removable bug nets. The weight of the half-style is generally very low, even with shock cord connections, and it can be left off if not needed.
Used the four yards of 1.9 ripstop (costing less than $14) to make an 11-foot hammock. I used some Amsteel I already had for end loops, and made a ridgeline from Zingit bought earlier in the year.
So for a total cost, including shipping, of less than $36, I ended up with a hammock, tree straps and two bug nets. That value is very hard to beat. The only downside is my itch to make something else, even though I don't really need it. DIY is addictive, so beware.
