    I'd suggest ordered one of each and selling the one you didn't prefer. Easy enough and probably cost you very little. Hell, Dutch may allow you to return one..

    Thank you for the info guys. I know it's very personal but I think if I hear enough of everyone's personal stories I'll be able to make a better decision. So thank you. Does anyone know:

    How wide the Chameleon standard hammocks are?
    How well do the bug nets fit the wide Chameleons?
    When does the 15% off sale end?
    What does the 15% off sale apply to?

    Well, I don't know the answer to the first two, but the sale is from Today (Wednesday) until Sunday the 25th. I believe it applies to Chameleon hammocks and Chameleon accessories.

    #2 is subjective
    #3 might have been covered in the email, but I didnít notice and I deleted it accidentally

    If you're capable of find this information on the website could you please just write it here? I was not able to find it on the website. On the wide version, it says the width right in the top block of information. For the standard version, I haven't seen it. I did an in-page search for the words "wide" and "width" and they do not appear on the page.

    IIRC, standard finished width is 58" and wide is 68"
    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"

    The standard Chameleon is 58Ē. That info appears in the Q&A section of the Chameleon product page.

    I had trouble finding the standard width too. I guess I didn't think to check the Q&A, thanks Cmoulder and Snaps for letting us know!

    I'm 6'1", 180 lbs. My Dream Hammock Raven is 58" and has always been very comfortable. But I recently ordered a Dream Hammock Darien at 64" wide, and the comfort for me is on a whole other level. The added width helps make sure there is no side pressure on my ankles- with the hammock having an integrated bug net. In my Raven, I always felt the edge of the hammock pressing into the side of my foot. Since the Darien is wider, I can lay a little more diagonally- which puts the edge of the hammock more at the bottom of my foot, rather than the side.

    For me, I think 68" would be too wide- as the sides would be too floppy for my preference.

    I just looked at the discussion page and it actually says 55".
