    local army surplus shop is always on the look out for me lol failing that lucky with ebay and things.
    most difficult thing to find thus far... a suitable hammock setup that can take the weight... 180ish kgs

    and long enough to let me lay down properly. currently working with a snugpak jungle setup.

    DD stuff dosnt stand a chance :(

    I'm a big fan of my Hennessey jungle hammock, it was very pricey but I'd had a wind fall, felt spontaneous and wanted something bomb proof in case my weight rocketed again.
    Was the biggest one I found (still not big enough fo you sadly)
    I did see somewhere on the forums that someone makes heavy duty hammocks for us bigger blokes, if I find the details I'll send them on.

    Cheap light waterproof breaks up your outline, that's all you need

    I think its all a matter of attitude to the clothing rather than the clothing itself. I have a really mixed bag of clothing I wear for various outdoor pursuits and it includes various items of surplus camo gear. All pastimes seem to come with their uniform these days and you get numpties who rush out to buy the latest greatest item for each of them. In context and backed up by ability its fine to dress the part, its only those who think the clothes are the most important part of the activity......

    I have a DPM smock with royal marine commando badges on. As it was given to me by my brother in law who totally earned them I've kept them on. Know what you mean though I do feel a bit of a fraud in it lol
