I purchased 2 netless hammock kits for a few reasons. First I have two boys who fight over my hammock, second I'm interested in finding a budget friendly light weight hammock to try backpacking with and three I like sewing projects (as long as they aren't too hard because I'm not that talented and my sewing machine is an old singer compact from the 20s or 30s that pretty much does a strait stitch). So far I have completed one of the two hammocks and after watching the youtube video got right down to business with no unexpected issues. It was not difficult, nor did it take a long time and the finished product feels very sturdy and is comfortable to lie in. I would recommend this project and will most likely do another one soon in a super light material.
Ordered 2 kits in 1.9oz ripstop nylon. Each hammock finished at 126" long x 55" wide. I also made a double ended stuff sack from the cutoff for each. The kit components price is impossible to beat, a fantastic bargain. I have a cottage vendor hammock I purchased for over $100 which these diy hammocks are equal quality to. Great deal, great quality, great company! Thanks RSBTR!!
It was very difficult fabric to sew as a beginner but my husband was happy with how light the finished product was and it's very sturdy.
We definitely would buy again and figured out tricks to make it easier to sew that slippery fabric.
Love the value and ease of kits. Had everything I needed to have a hammock hanging in the backyard in an hour.
Excellent fabric to work with, easy to sew. In short time my hammock was ready to hang! One thing that prompted to get this was watching a tutorial they have on the web site. Step by step instructions just watch video!
