been sleeping in a mayan for ~8 months and loving it, and occasionally camp out with my small one person nylon hammock. It says it is rated for 160kg, (350lbs) and I am wondering just what the weight rating refers to.
Is it the fabric, the stitching, the ropes/webbing used to attach? How far can I push that rating, or, is there anything I can do to boost it?
Eventually I will be making my own, and I want to know how they work so I can make mine with a respectable weight limit.
