My neighbor, who has never used a hammock before, talked me into giving him my 2.8 solid weave hammock I built in this thread -http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=45545. We rode over to the nearest park and I showed him how to hang "in the wild" as he puts it.
He really likes how secure the thick fabric makes him feel. He's bigger than I am (couple inches taller about 250). I'm still liking this material.
You can see just how little it stretches in the pics. Now I have to get him to sign up here at Hammock Forums.
