I tried the LH last night and slept for 10 straight hours. So yeah...I'd say someone that tall would be pretty happy with it. Upon waking I immediately set up the Classic. As comfortable as I was in the LH....I was even more comfortable in the Classic. I also like the option of using the spreader bar. I probably should have gone with a single layer to save weight since I rarely use a pad anyway.
Both hammocks are awesome. I am 100% satisfied with the hammocks and the customer service I've received from Dale.
On a side note, I was able to hook up with SoCal Mike during my trip to CA. He tried out the Classic and really liked it. Word on the street has it that he may be ordering a Classic single layer. I'll include a pic of him trying it out. Check the big grin on that mug. There's a happy hanger!
Yep, I was all grins in the SB Classic. Very comfortable, fantastic quality and tons of features. A big thank you to Miguel, who responded to a post where I asked for anyone with a SB if I could try it out at a demo. He went out of his way meet up with me during a visit with family and friends. This forum is great and everyone I've encountered so far has been very helpful and gracious in offering to show me their gear to help me with my decision on which hammock to get. I plan on grabbing an SB single layer Classic. Will certainly let everyone know how it works out. Thanks again, Miguel!
