I am wanting to get my girlfriend a hammock. She likes my WBBB 1.1 DL. She is about 5'3" 105 lbs and so I was thinking we could lighten her load (and make it smaller and cheaper) by going with something like an HH Scout (ideally Zip but if someone has real world weights a Classic would be fine)
I went to the HH site and it claims...
- the Scout is 2 lbs 10 oz on the Hammocks Page
- the Scout is 2 lbs 11.5 oz on the Customize the Scout Zip Page
- the Scout is 2 lbs 11.5 oz on the Customize the Scout Classic Page
It also claims the Standard Scout Rainfly is 10.5 oz.
Assuming the lighter 2 lbs 10 oz weight and that it includes the 10.5 oz fly that means the hammock + suspension still weighs 31.5 oz.
My WBBB 1.1 DL (which is larger & double layer) is supposed to weigh 27 oz with the suspension. (I haven't actually weighed it and am on travel right now).
How could the smaller Scout be so much heavier? Even the HH Expedition claims to weigh 1 oz less @ 2 lbs 9 oz on the Hammocks Page. What gives?
Does anyone have an HH Scout Hammock (no rainfly) they could weigh to give me an idea of the accuracy of the weights on the HH site?
