Noob here, with no gear and no clue. I've been on the forums for about a month and would like to buy my first hammock. My question goes out to the larger hangers in here who know that finding something that fits can be an adventure. I'm not very tall at 6'0" but make up for it in the girth department weighing in at 260lbs with real broad shoulders. My queston is preference between a gathered or a bridge hammock. The WBB 1.7 double looks like great gear and was recomended by a larger hanger in here who likes it a lot. I'd like to hear from a bridge owner as well for some input on this. My major concern in going with a gathered might be my shoulders feeling scrunched. Where as the bridge just looks more spacious. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
