1.3 oz Silnylon
I came across this fabric while looking at the cuben fiber:
http://www.questoutfitters.com/Lightweight.htm (Look just under the Cuben fiber.)
Wierd...I noticed the title calls it 1.1 oz, but the description lists 1.3 oz...later they also list 1.1 oz...
Would this 1.3 oz silnylon be desirable for making a hammock out of?
Most of them are like that. It is 1.1 oz before the silicon treatment. Afterward it comes closer to 1.3.
I like a breathable material for the hammock due to contensation issues, but that is just me.
This has been discussed on the forum a couple of times before. While it can be done, the general consensus seemed to be that it's better to use a more breathable fabric than silnylon to prevent condensation issues.
