Thanks Matt! Honestly, if the fishing doesn’t pick up here soon I’m going
to have to use it for a gill net to catch me some fish… I’m gettin’
desperate, haha ;-) Take good care my Brother!

I’m not often impressed but that was awesome. My wife and I just got into
backpacking and I am going to make us each one. We wanted some sort of camp
chair but didn’t want the added weight, this is perfect. Thanks so much for
the great idea.

a great EDC, when bush crafting, especially when you don’t feel like
sitting on dirt of cold rocks!

Great bid yet again. I can’t wait to use this as a gear stowaway under my
hammock. I have never seen the para cord system you used to lash to the
tree, very nice. What knots did you use to mage the individual “sections”
to adjust attachment points? Just simple overhand knots? Thanks again!

Shrek and I made these. 5.5 ounces with carabiners and whoopie slings. We
changed the dimensions a bit so that the seat was a little larger.

I’d be careful about melting those ends. You can easily burn through the
bottom line.
