Camping./Tent Hammock

Recommended Posts

I am interested in purchasing a Tent/Camping type Hammock similar to the one I had when I was in Viet Nam. I have looked online and none of them have been satisfactory. I would need one that sleeps two people, measures at least 7 feet long by 5 1/2 feet wide, has a mosquito net and a rain fly and would be capable of holding around 600 pounds as it would double for off the ground storage of equimpment as well.

Most of the ones out there hold around 300 pounds, are single sleepers and are not long enough. Does anyone know of any place that sews canvas that might be capable of making one to my specifications? I live in the Minneapolis/St P area.aul

Yes I have. Their hammocks will only support 400 pounds and that would NOT be enough to support the two of us. I am 275 lbs. alone the Mrs. is 165 lbs. Plus, I don't think they make a camping type hammock that will sleep two>

I would say you are looking at a special order piece of equipment. I can give you a couple shots in the dark. You can try a search for canvas craft or kondos outdoors. If they won't do it maybe they can point you in the right direction.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
