    My EDC Hammock turned up today and i am well impressed. I got mat to make it me with a larger channel in the bottom of it so i can remove the amsteel and set it up on an A frame as well if i like. Building structures with the scouts i am sure this will happen at some points and i will post a picture.
    I have taken a couple of images below to show you mats fine work..


    All rapped up and it is very small. (Standard size pen )

    for 15 quid i am dead impressed and the custom channel was done at no extra cost

    i was going to use this as a gear hammock mostly but now i am not so sure
    will get some more images when the rain finally stops and i get out to have a play

    I have had a couple of chats with Mat about hammocks and other bits of kit and he is a really nice fella, happy to share tips and general advice, even after I ended up getting a DD Frontline. Top Bloke.

    I don't currently hammock enough to justify a further gear hammock, but it does seem like a good idea, perhaps something to look at if I ever become a fully fledged swinger. Will be interested to see how you go with yours in the field.

    if i am honest i wanted a silver fox chair but one a bit bigger, when i saw this i thought kill three birds with one stone so i get best of both worlds and with the ability to use it on an A frame just gets better and better...
