I just hung my 20 year old Mayan Hammock in the backyard and told myself " Why did you wait so long? " Love laying there after work with a beer..waiting for the snow ;-) But that Draumr (dream) design is really cool. Looks amazingly coney too.

My one and only nit to pick with it's design,.. and admittedly it's a small, and probably a personal preference nit! I wish it was configured for a side to side rocking motion like a regular hammock. I'm sure the "rocking chair" type motion wouldn't be too big an issue to overcome, but I think sleeping would be easier for me with rocking the side to side motion. Just my own druthers is all! Not a real complaint.

It's still a very cool, All in one, compact shelter design! Seems very well thought out and engineered!

Then you want the Nube'... really cool as well but no flat bottom. Rally undecided between the 2. This is cooler overall...but you can't sleep on your side and don't have the "chair" option

I picked up some guys "bug out bag" off of CL over the summer for $150. It had a nice REI 85l backpack, 2 hammocks (an ENO double nest & a Clark Jungle Hammock), a nice light weight sleeping bag, and a jet boil. The Clark was missing the rain fly, so I've been trying to find an inexpensive solution for that. I picked up a footprint for a 2-3 person backpacking tent at a local gear resale shop, which was fine for my first trip when it was dry. I'm going to buy the materials for a DIY 4 season tarp and pay a friend of mine to sew it up.

Most hammocks are designed to be set up so your head/feet are aligned with the suspension. This is the first one I've where you sleep perpendicular to the suspension, and IMO it looks like an interesting option. I've only done a couple of nights out in mine & since I tend to roll a bit when I sleep, I had some issues. The first night I slept like a rock (also had a healthy buzz when I went to sleep), the second night wasn't as successful. When I was setting up one of my friends on the trip was busting my balls & rooting for me to fall. I set up the ENO hammock so anybody that wanted could chill in it, & by the end of the trip she spent a bunch of time just hanging out stoned in it.

We had just gone up to Still Creek campground which is about a half mile east of Govt Camp & 1/4 mile east of the road up to Timberline. The second night we were there 2 truck loads of guys rolled in around dark to the campsite across the way from us. We couldn't really see what was going on as they were setting up camp. But when I woke up the next AM they had about 10 guys, 8 hammocks and were all gearing up to go ride Timberline. I was jealous.

They're not difficult DIY projects. DIY Gear Supply | Dream it – Design it – Build it – With DIY Gear Supply has materials & plans. The tarps are a little more complicated, but you can pretty much make a hammock without having to do any real sewing.

I know...Totally hooked on the Hammocks now. I'd love one of those Draumr hammocks, planning to do a bug net and a rain tarp for my ENO, I have tons of slings and biners from climbing... where you camping in the snow? I'm not sure I want to try this kind of camping in cold weather...summer any time..
Very cool link. Thanks!

I doubt I'll use it in the snow, but I'd rather not get caught in a rainy ass PNW night ill prepared. So since the 4 season tarp is about $15 more in materials, I'm going with it.
