    My thoughts, too. I am 6'2" and in my own evolution of hammock use I have found I really prefer wider hammocks. Not necessarily the widest but those 62-64" and wider.

    With a 11' tarp you'll still have about a foot on each end and that is plenty, especially with a hammock with doors. A 13' tarp is huge and IMO, a PITA. All my tarps are 11'.

    It looks interesting. I think the concept of layering the Apex on the outer part of the quilt is sound and may have merit. I, too, am intersested in seeing how it performs in real world conditions.
