    A couple. And my PapaSmurf DangerBird us double 1.9.

    Joannes and Hancock Fabric stock ripstop is 1.9 so I think a lot of people (including me) have DIY hammocks from1.9 oz.

    I've used it for sl and dl. Double layer for my large bro-in-law and his large family. I promised him any two of them would be good in it and I was right.

    I'd say it held over #500. And they were swinging...

    I found the Hancock's 1.9 was a lot nicer after being run through the washer, no soap.

    Just whipped one up (no pun intended) last weekend.

    I used the stuff from DIY Gear Supply and it is quite nice.
