    Thanks, Sleepy!

    I'm unfortunately out of town and sick with the stomach flu. Once I make a full recovery, I'll take her out for a spin. I may make a short video about it as well. We'll see!

    Thank you very much! I can't wait to get it in the mail.

    I ordered the 61'' wide due to a recommendation of Papa Smurf. Their website has a height/weight indicator that shows what size would be most suitable for you. A lot of people take the "as wide as possible" route, but I don't want it too big. I think the site says you may lose 1.5 - 2 inches after they trim up all the fabric and sow it, so I went with 61 because 59 ish was my golden zone.
    Thank you very much, Mellow_Ledbetter!
    I will talk to Papa Smurf when I'm ready to order my Darien and get more information.
    Sure you will enjoy a lot your new beautiful hammock!
    Be happy!

    I think this is what is being referred to.

    And FWIW I am 5'9" and have two Dariens (1.2 and 1.7 Robic), 10' x 64" and they are perfect for me. I also have a 2nd hand Darien (like new, bought here on HF) that is 10' x 66" and it is also great.
