I wouldn't doubt it. I know a 260lb man that used a silk hammock he made. And used it for a couple of years. Don't get me wrong, he was like a mother nursing her baby when he was handling it and using it, but it worked.
The weight savings are mostly in the dimensions on this thing. It's shorter. You will have to sacrifice a little comfort to save this weight. But for a fastpacker, adventure racer, and thru hiker, that might be a small price to pay. It's 7' long by 4' wide. That's quite a difference from most other camping hammocks.
I'd bet it still sleeps much better than the ground.
Info of the Nano 7:
The Nano 7 hammock from Grand Trunk is an extremely lightweight hammock. It is perfect for relaxing on day hikes or in the backyard. It is also the perfect choice for those wanting to camp overnight as the Nano 7 would be the lightest backpacking hammock on the market. Constructed of sturdy but light ripstop nylon the Nano 7 is durable as well as light. The included stuff sack is attached for convenience and when packed the Nano 7 is about the size of a softball. Carabiners at each end simplify set up.
EASY to OPEN - Just grab the Nano in one hand and pull the red carabiner.
