Hey all, a little while ago I decided to get into the make you own gear and made a hammock out of 2 pieces of 1.9 oz Ripstop and was great, but heavy. Today I go another 4 yrds and look at some of the exta from the last propject and decided to see if 1 piece of 1.9 oz Ripstop would hold me. So far it looks good. Now I sould say that Im not a light person, at about 270lbs, and in the persuit of lighter gear was wondering if making my new hammock out of 1.9 all by it self is a good idea, or sould I add another layer of 1.1 oz Ripstop I got from Thru-Hiker.
