The hammock I am making now is 200d nylon, treated on one side (it will be inside). I would love to know the denier rating compared to oz. of 1.7 oz nylon? Maybe I can google a chart or something. Personally, I have had bad luck with light nylon ripstop ripping out, from both bad sewing and rubbing on things. I got dumped out in the middle of the woods during the big snowstorm we had this winter. I sewed in a quilt, and sewed it right to the bottom of a double layer diy hammock, the sewing stretched at a different rate than the nylon, and BAM, into a drift in my sleeping bag and undies. lol. That was the walmart digital camo nylon. weight unknown.
