Spending time in the great outdoors is more enjoyable with a good place to sit or lie down, and that’s precisely what Rapid Hammock is all about. These 40D ripstop nylon hammocks are lightweight at 1.5 pounds and set up in about 30 seconds: all that’s needed are two suitable trees and a spot worth taking in. They’re also rated to 450lbs, include an integrated double-barrel stuff sack that’s impossible to lose, and boast a RapidStrap suspension system to quickly adjust the height of your hang.
I have tried to make a simple ripstop nylon hammock (using 75gsm fabric) but I don't have a sewing machine and went for the superlazy design. I took the 3m x 155cm rectangle and simply bunched the material into my fists as I scrunched from the outside edges into the middle. I then took a plastic zip tie / cable tie / tie wrap and cinched the bunched material about 6 inches or so from the end of the hammock. As I closed the zip tie I pulled the long edges out slightly to reduce the amount of loose flap that the sides would have later on.
