Found and purchased cub for the little one. We tested her out tge other day. He just loved it. My self on the smaller size, 5' 6" and 125 lbs, i meet the height requirement and just 5lbs over the weight limit. So i just had to try it out myself my first time using a hennsy.
In my opinion i think the weight limit is very modest. I thought it was very comfortable. Now ive always used smaller hammocks. Eno pronest, GTUL GT nano 7. Which ive also just purchased a dangerbird 60 which i love but feel like i swim in it, but will see alot of use,
Anywho i guess what im trying to say, unlike most i prefer smaller hammocks then larger ones. I found another cub for $75 and couldnt pass it up, told the gf it was for her but i may "borrow" it for a couple solos this summer. Must add whoopies first.
Just wanted to share some thoughts thanks for reading!
Lucky that you can feel very comfortable in a smaller hammock - great weight savings. Personally, I like my bigger rigs - feel right for me.
I personally love the bigger rig as well (expedition ultralight), compared to my winter hammock (DIY gathered)
I love the Cubs! I bought two for my kids and am impressed with them!
We got our first cub this year, along with two scouts, so all the kids can hang now. They've all slept in the basement already and all passed out very quickly and completely. :)
IMO i just feel nice and snug in my smaller hammocks and have always slept well. 300 miles on the AT in my pronest 2 years ago, so i feel right at home in the cub.
So what is the most weight some one has put in one if theses cubs? They look really heavy duty and seem they would hold alot more the 120 lbs. I do know it voids any warranties but im not worried about that. I never hang my hammock high anyway.
