    size comparison 1.7 and 1.1 dl

    Anyone have some pics of a stuff sacked 1.7 and 1.1 for a size comparison. and do you have an opinion on the shoulder squeeze when downsizing to a 1.1.

    Thanks LUKE

    Are you asking about a certain type of hammock?

    No picture, but the stuffed size difference is pretty small. I didn't notice any additional shoulder squeeze going from a 1.7 dbl to a 1.1 dbl.

    I weight 210 and have both the 1.1 and 1.7 dbl WBBB. I find the pack size to be pretty much comparable when compressed all the way but I don't compress them down to their smallest size I just put them in the double ended stuff sack they come in and let it take up space.

    As for comfort. I have slept many a night's in my 1.7 dbl and only one in the 1.1 dbl and right now my vote is going towards the 1.7. I found their to be less shoulder squeeze and at least for me I found it to be a flatter lay. Maybe I just need some more nights in the 1.1 but well see. For the lighter loads the 1.1 will be coming with me. When I dont car about weight and car camping the 1.7 will be my go to hammock. With that said. I do plan on getting a 1.1 traveler to save weight.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I have a 1.7 dbl and my wife has a 1.0 dbl and when placed side by side in the stuff/bishop bags they came in they look the same size. I could compress them some more if I needed to but have not needed to.
