I'm looking to maximize comfort (add width) while keeping weight of ~6.5oz (subtracting length)...
As the others have alluded to, it is the length that lets you use the width to lay diagonally. Take away the length and you can't use the width.

The group buy ACU is actually a 1.0 oz ripstop. I can't believe you started with a 68" wide fabric and cut away all the good stuff.
