    Weight ratings for traveler

    I weigh around 235# and I wanted to know if the weight ratings for the blackbird apply to the traveler as well... ie.. dL 1.7 for 200+ I ask this because I would like to have the single layer 1.7, but I need to know if it will home me without destroying the integrity of the hammock. thanks

    The ratings are in a chart on the front page of the WB site. Scroll toward the bottom.

    I'm about the same weight and use a single layer 1.7. No worries.

    Yes, he does seem to have a new table on his home page with pricing and weight ratings. What I found interesting was the new prices. $50 for a SL Traveler now? Brandon, is that accurate?

    the prices on the table are incorrect, waiting on my web guy to fix it. he must be on vacation

    tarp prices are correct, hammock prices on the hammock's page are correct.
