Many of you know I like a heavy, non-stretch fabric under me and don't care for any "springyness" in my hammocks.
My regular "shop hammock" now is a single layer 2.3oz Woodland Camo Poly/Nylon blend.
It's got a great feel to it and is rock solid. I've got it rated at 265lbs, but I'm thinking it would be plenty comfortable for someone heavier than this. I even decided to take this one out for last month's Boy Scout campout. I'm thinking I need a new DangerBird using this fabric.
The other fabric I've been real happy with is the 1.6oz ACU Camo ripstop nylon. Soft, pliable and not the slightest plastic feeling. If you're thinking double layer, I'd suggest looking closely at this one.
What fabric feels the best on the skin and is the softness that would support 230# in a SL?
