    How Wide?

    I think I am going to make a new hammock because mine is getting small. On the HHs it looks like they are very wide. What is the best width for an UL hammock but keeping it easy to sleep in?

    What size is your current hammock (the one that is too small)? About 60" wide works well for me.

    For a normal hammock I like four feet like a Claytor. There are no big walled flaps to deal with, and also, ten feet long minimum. Mule

    I like fabric that's 60-62" wide. After hemming it ends up being 58-60" wide.
