Not to knock a 6 oz hammock, but that figure surely does not include suspension to the trees or webbing at the trees.
The stated dimensions work out to be 5.3 square yards of material. 1.1 ripstop is a minimum of 1.1 oz / yd^2, can be higher owing to DWR coating if present. But 5.3 x 1.1 = at least 5.82 oz of material alone.
