A couple weeks ago I made my first hammock, a double layer 1.1oz ripstop. Thought that was my only option.

Today I noticed that Warbonnet sells a single layer 1.1oz Blackbird for people up to 185lbs. That's what I weigh, so I figured I'd give it a try. Took no time to make one up and have put my weight in it. Only 8.9oz with 6' whoopie slings.

Is it really safe?

If it is, I'd like to use it on the trail. Others out there using a 1.1 single of any sort?
