    Whip for sure
    Hexon 1.0 weighs 1.07 oz/sqyd and it has a square ripstop grid.



    Agreed. I look forward to hearing how it goes. A 67 hammock has been made. Not sure of the results.

    Those are lighter than I expected. The weight is one reason I shy away from zippers, but for like 1.5 oz, they might be worth it.
