    Could you?

    Could you make a WBBB DBL clone out of 0.75 SPINN? If so what would be the pros n cons?

    Thx BCW

    Pro: light weight

    Con: Noisy. Prone to abrasion, wear. Not breathable/practical for summer use.

    You'll probably get longer answers than Joey's, but he pretty much nailed it.

    Don't do it!

    It'd be a swimming pool..with or without rain. Your body would gives off enough vapor that the spinn hammock would be wet.

    You'd only be saving a few grams vs 1.1.
