    my take on the hammock chair.

    i have seen much of the hammock chairs on here for a while and to be honest i like the concept,but after trying one and giving it some thought i came up with my own take on the design,the main thing i didnt like about the conventional one was the crossbeam bar that digs into the back of yer legs and secondly finding the uprights and a cross bar could be difficult in some circumstances.So with this in mind i set about designing this model,it utilizes no poles or sticks at all just a tree, the design works on a bucket seat design with a tight a frame made of webbing,each corner has 4 guys,2 to exert force forwards and two to exert a sideways force,the idea being that the pore pegging points the stronger the anchor.the whole chair pits into a cargo trouser pocket and weighs very little.
    So this is the result of the prototype,this one is smaller than an adult one would be and it seems to work a treat!

    I gave fish a rep point. Is giving rep points a new feature of the forum or did I not notice it before?

    If there are no women around and a man says something, is he still wrong?
