I'm getting ready to order some ripstop for my first DIY hammock and need to get some of that knowledge stuff..
I'm 240# on the way to 185. Want to keep the weight down but retain durability so I am looking at 40D 1.5oz
Is 40D heavy enough? Too heavy?
What is the difference between 'pure finish' and calendared, soft and hard hand?
Does any of this make a difference regarding strength, durability and most importantly comfort?
Will DWR tend to make you sweat? (Florida)
Do brighter colors attract more bugs?
