I chose kit with 1.6 nylon which is a nice blend of weight and strength. Watch the video and it is a quick, easy project. Poly webbing with a sewn end loop combined with a soft shackle and tied off with a becket hitch is a simple way to suspend the hammock. This is my second kit which i highly recommend.

A while back I tried my hand at creating some gear with a shelter and quilt. I think I got a little over my head even though I'm happy how it turned out. I think it turned me off of myog. This kit is perfect for learning some basic stitching and reintroducing me to the hobby. It only took me a few hours over a couple days, but I loved it so much I got the hammock tarp kit and Im looking forward to do the underquit next!
Oh and I went camping the other day with my SO using our hammocks and they were way more comfy than my eno and tent. I think it convienced them to get into outdoor hobbies! So can't recommend this enough for a starting project.

Sew easy! Went very quick. I’ve used the hammock for three nights; all were great for sleeping quality. Bundles up to about the size of a one-liter Nalgene bottle. Have not weighed it yet; my guess is 1-1/2# with two 20’ suspension straps. Great starter project.
