lol catavarie, I couldn't even tell with the explanation in the auction, because it had 3 different weights in there. Had absolutely no clue which one the auction was for. I did mail her though, and she said the fabric is PU coated on one side. I'm assuming PU coated means that making a hammock out of it, would result in a lot of sweating right ? Which would mean in me having to look a bit further for uncoated ripstop.
@John - I'm almost 6', so I'll probably take you up on that length suggestion. I was already hanging from a 240cm (7.9feet) ridgeline which I thought was rather short, guess I could take that in a little more. And I also had my footend higher than my headend, but only with about 3 inches, not 6. I'll give that a go too.
