Hello Everyone. I did some searches and have been trying to learn some more before I make my first hammock.
I am interested in making a hammock for myself for recreational camping.
I see that 1.9oz nylon ripstop is popular and that was my starting point. I am on the heavy side and I am not too worried about fabric weight in my pack. I am mostly interested in comfort and sturdiness..
I weigh about 275 lbs and i like to overbuild things...( FGR- fat-guy-rated)
I was thinking about 200D nylon (non ripstop) uncoated that I found here:
I am thinking that ideally something like 120D - 200D nylon might give me more strength without having to double up...
Is this a good way to go? Should I instead be looking at polyester microfiber?
AM I correct in assuming that a urethane coating on any of these owuld make it less breathable?
