This unique Gear Hammock and Pack Cover was conceived by Just Jeff of whiteblaze.net and refined by Jacks ‘R’ Better. Made of silicone impregnated 1.1 oz. ripstop nylon, with only perimeter seams, it is waterproof without seam sealing. The 1/8 inch shock cord, around the complete perimeter, with a single toggle insures durable, secure, easy employment as a rain cover. Nylon gross grain corner tabs facilitate quick hanging as a gear hammock either above, below, or along side a regular hammock. It doubles as a large waterproof pack cover and works well as a gear sack for loose items under a ground tarp. When the four corners are gathered with a cord or the included micro-carabiners it can carry and store 6-10 quarts of water. When placed carefully over a cleared depression it readily serves as a field sink or tub. The micro-carabiners have several uses. In the pack cover mode, attach them to a corner loop and clip them on any convenient pack strap for insurance against loss in extreme high winds. They also facilitates quick connect and disconnect to a Hennessy Hammock©. Use one to attach one of the Gear Hammock corner loops to the HH side tie-out point then use the other to clip the opposite corner loop to the HH suspension line in the vicinity of the knot cover. Jeff’s Gear Hammock and Pack Cover comes in two sizes: regular size, 34″x36″, (packs up to 3000 cu in) and large size, 42″x55″, (packs 3000 – 6000 cu in) size. All this functionality for 3.0 oz. in the regular size and 3.75 oz. for the large size (including the micro-carabiners).
