    Actually it‘s still available. My bad. I edited the post above from “115$ shipped” to “115$” to make it less confusing. I just meant to say that the price includes shipping.

    You'll like the 1.3 fabric. For me, it's the perfect compromise if it's about weight, packability and comfort. Actually on comfort it's no compromise. :)

    Hi. Since you're not the first one to ask, I just sent a mail to Jared and let you know once he gets back to me.
    That said, I weigh 176 lbs and this is my most comfortable hammock.

    Bulkier and heavier, too. I agree on the low height of the hang though. It won't work with every hammock (+ underquilt). Works well with my 11' hammock with a 87% ridgeline.
