    We wanted to be let everyone know that Dutchware has purchased Clark Hammock Company. We have move the Clark Jungle Hammock forum into a sub forum under the Dutchware forums.

    Hammock Forums is a family friendly site. This means that our topics, language and treatment of each other are what you'd want your kids to see. We're not a bunch of prudes...we just think that the internet has enough places where that behavior is tolerated, and this particular site shouldn't be one of them. This is a great community where the norm is to support others in their ideas and projects, and not assume offense where none is intended...and therefore not to flame, call names, or create friction in our threads. Respectful disagreement is ok; disrespectful comments are not.

    Please participate in accordance with these guidelines, and PM the mods with any questions.

    Just a friendly reminder of HF's Terms of Service re: discussing religion and politics on this forum. It's not allowed.

    I thought a reminder would help us stay focused. Applying the TOS to the holidays, it's ok to wish folks Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa or whatever...but discussions about the religious aspects of the holidays will be removed. We're here to discuss hammocks, so if you have strong feelings about religion and the holidays, please find another forum to discuss them.

    Hammock Forums has always had a strict rule against political and religious posts. This has normally applied to issues that most members can agree are contentious...gun rights and carry laws, differences in religion, political elections and candidates, etc. As we've said several times, this isn't about First Amendment rights but about keeping this particular site respectful and on-topic.

    Weight Limits and Fabric Choices for XLC/Eldorado

    A single layer WB hammock 70D or 40D will hold 275 pounds.
    The 70D may feel a bit firmer and heavier.
    Single is my preference for backpacking.

    Lower Back Pain after first night

    The double layer may be a bit firm for your back. Maybe try a pad that is half delflated between layers to soften the lay.

    Not with the WB. I found that the foot end needs to be higher than what I normally set on my Dutchware. I think it's because you lay closer to the head

    Ultralight suspension - hardware vs knots

    I think tree strap directly to the hammock continuous loop is the lightest. Like a Becket Hitch (there are others as well).

    Update: I was sleeping for about 6h and woke up again with back pain. It's strange because I feel super comfortable in my hammock. Maybe I have to experiment
