Decided to try the 2.8 oz. Plain Weave Nylon that Backwoods Daydreamer carries. Being a bigger guy (6'1" 250 ish), I wanted to make a single layer gathered end hammock with Knotty's stretch sides. I started at a 10'6" length, but after trying it, it didn't feel right. So I cut it down 6" - still didn't feel right - another 6 inches and "perfect"! Super comfy and flat. I really like this material - has a smooth side and a rough side. It weighs in at 15.4 oz with suspension.
