DIY Double sided stuff sack [illustration]

Derek Hansen/ The Ultimate Hang talks about making a double sided stuff sack

original article posted on TheUltimatehang.com

I drew up these instructions when my Boy Scout troop decided to make their own hammocks. Stuff sacks are an easy do-it-yourself project with minimal sewing skills. I often have enough left over material from other projects to scrap together a stuff sack, but you can purchase all the materials from your local fabric store or online. I found all my material from backwoodsdaydreamer.com.

If you’re not into sewing, but you are in the market for a double-sided stuff sack, I highly recommend the Jacks “R” Better Speed Sacks.

Derek Hansen Derek Hansen is a lightweight backpacker, Scoutmaster, and “hammock enthusiast” who enjoyed his first hammock hang at age 14 at the BSA Beaver High Adventure base in Utah. The hammock he used then was a compact net style that was strung up in an “Ewok Village” constructed from log platforms lashed up high in the pines. Derek rediscovered the wonders hammock camping 16 years later in Virginia, and has been avoiding the ground ever since. Web site: TheUltimatehang.com
