I am about to order all I need from DIY supply gear to make a complete setup sans tarp. I am 6'1" and 180 pounds, will be using the hammock for hiking and I need some help regarding materials. I will be using a UQ so single layer seems the way to go and the polyester taffeta blanks look really tempting, but are they unnecessary weight? and whats the durability like?
Should I be looking at nylon 1.1? and if so is a single layer sufficient?
Is a double 1.1 a better choice for durability?
Sorry for all the questions, I have never gone camping in a hammock so this is all new to me.
