    WBBB & tall people

    Any tall people have any feedback for the WBBB?

    Sorry if this is a double post... I swore I clicked "enter" before but somehow the thread never showed up.

    I'm 6'4" 230 and have plenty of room in the Black Bird. I imagine someone up to 6'6" or 6'7" would be comfortable...maybe taller. How tall are you?

    Where are you located? I'm in Albertville if you are near and would like to give it a try.

    Thanks everyone, I'm about 6'2" and 190 lbs. I figure another 10 lbs with clothes and gear.

    Also, thank you very much to everyone who has patiently answered all of my PMs! I'm still researching the 1.1 Double versus the 1.7 Double for my weight. I'm a backpacker, so saving .5 lbs on the hammock seems tempting, but I don't want to sacrifice comfort or durability.

    I'm in Montgomery. Albertville seems like the perfect location - close to the Smokeys, Sipsey, Pinhoti, and plenty in N GA. I think I might have to send you a message next time I'm "up north." Thanks!

    Yeah, just let me know when you are up this way. A buddy of mine and I are starting the Pinhoti this fall, and will continue on to the Benton McKaye Trail and AT in sections.

    Tall guy here

    6'8" 250 basketball player here and I fit fine in my WBBB. Shouldn't be a problem for you.

    Just went through the same process you are going through - I am 6'6" and 250. I just placed the order for my WB BB. Be sure to get the 1.7 Double.
