    I love my Dream Hammock Raven. It is very comfortable, and offers a lot of modularity at a killer price point.

    I'm 6'4" x 320 lbs. Here's what Randy (aka "Papa Smurf") from Dream Hammock recommended for me...

    I would consider an 11ft x 68" or even an 11ft x 72" hammock for your height and weight.
    For the outside layer, I'd go with the 2.2oz Hex70 fabric. This fabric is being transitioned over to a wider 74" fabric a few colors at a time. If you order one of the following colors, we can use it to get you a 72" finished width. (Black, Charcoal Gray, Dark Olive, Olive Green, Racing Red, Vader Blue)
    For the inside layer, I'd go with the 1.6oz HyperD XL. This fabric is super soft and yet very supportive. It starts at 76ish wide so it'll pair very nicely with the Hex70.


    I went with a Sparrow 72" wide. Just received it last week & gave it a brief test hang in the yard. It's A-MAZ-ING! I'll be sleeping in it in the mountains this Memorial Day weekend. Here's my specs & pics...

    Here's one of the YouTube reviews that helped me to decide between Duch's Chameleon, Warbonnet's Blackbird XLC, & Dream Hammock's Sparrow. I'm sure they're all terrific hammocks & you probably can't go wrong with any of them.

    I have a warbonnet double layer and I use a thermorest foam pad during the winter. And I have never had a problem with it moving around or getting shifted. I wish I could say the same thing about my under quilt.......

    Well, thanks so much for all the information and, everyone. Unfortunately my bf decided he doesn't actually want to go camping anymore, so I guess this is on hold for now. But I'm going to upgrade myself eventually and even though I'm only 5'3" I prefer a wider fabric. Appreciate all the comments!

    Add some UQ (pack) hooks. One on either side about a foot or so in from each end and one that will grab the UQ suspension near the shoulder end of the UQ. Five total. It's what I did to my BB and it works like a charm.
