    Question Weight limit for Single 1.7 ?

    I am going to let a group of guys test my hammocks tomorrow.
    And i don't want my Precious BB Single 1.7 to be ripped.

    So can anyone remember the limit ?

    I hope it is more, cause I sleep in mine and I weigh 235.

    Make sure they wash their hands first.

    What are the weight limits for the double 1.7 and the single and double 1.1s?

    The fabric can hold more than you’d want to put in there, meaning that before capacity is reached you’ll start to experience a good deal of stretch, which will decrease flatness (both head-toe and shoulder to shoulder). This decrease in flatness will be most notable while laying on your side, so if you’re a back-only hammock sleeper or are willing to give up a little to save on packweight, then go with the “up-to” rating. If packweight doesn’t matter a whole lot, then go by the "max-flatness" rating.

    SL 1.1 (grey): up to 185#, Max-flatness for folks under 140#.

    DL 1.1 (grey): up to 250#, Max-flatness for folks under 200#.

    SL 1.7 (olive green): up to 240, Max-flatness for folks under 185#

    DL 1.7 (olive green): up to 375, Max-flatness for folks under 300#.
