I'm 6'-4" and 215 lbs... the Explorer Deluxe is plenty roomy, and I don't see how anyone could fall through the crack. On the HH video, Tom implies that you can just put your feet on either side of the crack and it will self open. Mine certainly doesn't do that... once the velcro is closed, I have to hand rip the velcro open to exit the hammock... I actually like this added feeling of security.
Don't let your size concern you about this hammock.
