    I have a SLD Voyageur made out of the Hexon 1.2. I’m 5’10 and around 175 lbs and it’s been great from a durability perspective. I also like the soft texture compared to my MTN 1.2 hammock. I say go for it.

    If you are looking for less stretch, I think MTN 1.2 at RSBTR is less "stretchy" ....

    Thank you, gentlemen! The Banshee UL is exactly what I'm looking at. At 11.5 ounces and a 10 ounce DCF tarp, I can get my shelter weight just about equal to the Gossamer Gear The One tent.

    Thanks for the suspension suggestion Iceman - that would cut 4 or more ounces.

    Twistytee - now I have one more hammock to look at! Looks like the Voyageur is netless (not an issue, I have a bottom entry bug net), how much does it weigh?

    And Cruiser - RSBTR is a new acronym for me... no wait.... it's ripstop by the roll. I'll look at others using the MTN fabric.

    I should mention that I'm pretty gentle/careful with my gear - I'm not made of money, and lightweight materials means extra care.

    Thanks again.

    .
    Mine is a 10í x 58Ē version, so not too dissimilar to the Bansheeís dimensions. It weighs about 9.5oz in the bishop bag, and Iím doing a MYOG Fronkey style net thatís ~3oz. So a little heavier than the Banshee during bug season but I like the optionality to take it netless during the winter and shoulder seasons. I also like the way Jared sews these mirroring the hood on the Trail Lair. I do think it helps spread the fabric under load and reduces calf ridge.

    I havenít slept in a Banshee but Iíve seen them up close during group hangs and it looks like a nice piece of kit.

    Thanks for the info. In the battle between a new push cart for golf or a new Banshee.... the hammock wins!
