    Recently finished a custom hammock that would fit you.
    * 12ft length
    * 115" ridgeline
    * Fabric: Double layer 72" wide, 1.9oz ripstop.
    * Side asym tieouts: 24" off center
    * Integrated noseeum bugnet with #5 zippers both sides
    * 2 peak bags
    * ridgeline organizer
    * 2 mitten hooks on ridgeline
    * 6ft whoopie slings
    * double ended stuff sack

    This thing is huge. I'm only 5' 8" and have to sit up slightly to reach the ridgeline and scooch clear up to the head end of the hammock to unzip the bug net.

    Someone provided the link I see above.

    All you have to do is roll the channel over once or twice (or however many times you want) and pull/bunch the fabric like you would with a stuff sack draw string. Wrap the loose ends around the material just below the "knot" and tie it off. I used a few knots to be safe.

    Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro

    I just had my first hang in a Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro this weekend. It was very comfortable and held up with no problems. I was a little worried since I am close to the upper limit. I am 6'5" and 350 lbs. But there were no problems. I can't wait to get out there again.
