Grand Trunk Nano 7
I'm considering one of these! I looked at the WB Traveler but it weighs 12oz! The Nano comes in at 7. How substantial are these? Can you get a diagonal lay? I'm 5'4" & weigh 128#! I've hung in a GT UL & didn't like all the excess fabric that kept falling into my face! The Nano is shorter & more narrow!
I don't want to waste my money if these are cheap junk!
I'm 6'0 and have enjoyed the gt ul.
If your smaller and want the smaller hammock, the nano is probably a good choice.
The fabric has held Pretty well so far for me. So I'd recommend it.
you could also look at the BIAS weight weenie micro I think it is an ounce or two lighter. But I have heard good things from both hammocks so
i don't think you can go wrong. With the Bias you can also choose the width which can be nice depending on what width you like!
I'm 5'7" and I use a DIY version of this hammock with a Knotty Mod on the head and foot end and enjoy it very much. equally as comfortable as some of the bigger hammocks I've tried.
I think the nano will be fine for you. I know guys much bigger than you who've loved it. I like the Nano, but since getting the BIAS hammock, I haven't taken the nano out much.
MY WWM is defiantly more of a go to than my gt. it's very very comfortable and lighter!
Thanks! Leaning toward the Bias micro with the Knotty mod! Can't beat the weight plus I like to support our cottage industries!
I never used a Good choice! Bias stands behind their products, and I've been very pleased with mine, and I know I'm not the only person!
I just picked one of these up from a forum member and after just lounging in it I have a feeling my Hennessey is about gonna be shelved as soon as my tulle gets here and I make a bugnet for it. That thing is unbelievably comfy and roomy, and it's the 52" version. With suspension and DE stuffsack, that is way bigger than needed, it weighs 13.3oz Add a tulle bugnet and I'll be just over a pound out the door. Can't beat that!

I have the Nano and also WB traveler. WB traveler is more comfortable than Nano because it is bigger. You can also make a DIY hammock to fit your body frame.
Good luck with your setup.
