Ok, so here is the story. A lot of us on this forum have made hammocks out of the Joann's 1.9oz nylon and have not had really any issues of catastrophic failure. I have made a number of these and slept successfully in said hammocks. Recently, I bought a WBBB 1.0 dbl from a member at BPL. I bought it for possible use with the wife or daughter given the weight limits that Brandon has set for the hammocks. But my curiosity got the better of me and I went to the park to set it up since it's the first BB I have gotten to see in person. Then I went and tried it out. Now I'm not the biggest on the forum but I am by no means the smallest either (6' 1"-285, but down from 325 at the beginning of the year.) And I have to say that it was a mighty fine hammock. Was able to get nice and flat. It stretched a little, but not more then my diy hammocks have without any issues.
So without causing liability issues and lawsuits, what are the realistic weight limits that we are dealing with. I have a knock-off ENO doublenest that is single layer that has the same ENO rating of 400lbs. I'm really just talking fabrics here. I switched the BB to 1/8" whoopie slings and marlin spikes. So the rigging can take the weight.
Let the discussion begin.
