    I started with a Traveller - actually it was a gift for my daughter that I used for awhile.
    For whatever reason, I had trouble keeping my feet in that hammock. It could have been because I was new to hanging or tall-ish (6’2”) or because I move around a lot when sleeping. Whatever the reason, is shift position and my feet wanted to go over the side of the hammock.
    I’ve since got a couple hammocks with knotty mods (one Wilderness Logic Lite Owl and one Dutch single layer) and that cured my problems.
    Even though I love the WB products, I never really took to the Traveller. Others love them.

    I've been using the Dutch Netless hammocks since they came out. You can get them in various weight ratings. I like the simplicity - it's a simple, gathered-end hammock. Nothing more, nothing less.

    At 6 ft. tall, I don't think you need a wide hammock. However, wide bodies do sometimes prefer wide hammocks! Dutch also sells wide hammocks.

    I'm 5'11" and weight 260lbs, I have tried hammocks that were 70 inches wide and found the excess of fabric annoying, it would just flop around when I rolled around. I have found for me that 62"-65" wide hammocks seem to fit me well and without all the extra fabric flop. I have found 1.6 hexon and 1.7 robic to be very comfortable.

    Good Luck
