Good Morning, Hammockers!
I'm making a hammock for my son for Christmas, who is about 6'2", 320 lbs. I feel certain this has been discussed before hereabouts, and I searched for the thread but couldn't find the one about the load tolerance of various weights of ripstop.
1.1 - 1.3 - 1.7 - 1.9 ... how much weight will they bear? Another question - will a double layer of ripstop support twice as much as a single layer? He lives in Florida so does mostly warm weather camping. But you never know, I might lure him up to Montana next fall! I have two double layer hammocks, and on a cool evening appreciate the ability to insert an insulating pad between them.
Thanks for your input.
