Just a point of reference, Brandon tells me a double 1.1 will work for me at 6-1 250. I'll wager a 1.0 single would work fine for you but perhaps Brandon will chime in. I have found (with the WBBB 1.7 dbl) that pads between the layers are tough to adjust. That said I recently ordered a Traveler 1.1 dbl to continue the experiment and to work on fitting my UQ better (the Traveler will be my Winter hammock). The only other reason for a double is Skeeter protection but with a Traveler I assume the enclosed netting will cover that well.
If you do what I did, you will find the pads take from the hammock experience and begin the search for an UQ anyway. I will use pads (without happy thoughts) to boost insulation or fix a cold spot when needed. Used ones are often at good prices here...just sayin'.
Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.
