    I was dropped to the ground with the M90 MR sl, and I weighed 214.2 immediately after the fall. I won't be taking that chance again.

    I'm not sure of the weight of the Nano.

    I am not too sure about the Momentum 90 MR (ripstop)...but I did test it in weight to about 250 on the making of a 10' hammock out of it..Neutron has done alot of testing and figures it will eventually fail at some point,,I know the M 90 T,,(tafetta) will rip very easy as I made one out of it also. The ripstop is better..as far as the Nano,,can't help you on that one,,but would guess 1.1 ripstop if anything or silk parachute material if I were to guess. I weigh 165 and the M 90 MR holds me just fine..for now that is.

    1.1 from DIYGearSupply holds me at #215... But it's stretchy... most recommend a heavier fabric or DL...
