    1.1 single layer for heavy hangers

    I see most recommendations for 1.1 single layer hammocks are for hangers 200 lbs. or lighter.
    Does anyone over 200 lbs use one of these?

    If so, do you notice any less comfort vs. heavier fabrics or double layers?

    i think it has to do with fabric strength. 1.1 isn't as strong as 1.7 or dual layers so it will stretch more and shorten the life of the fabric if its over loaded.
