    HH Hyperlite really restricted to under 6' height?

    I was so close to ordering the HH Hyperlite, and now just noticed that there is a height restriction of 6' on this. I'm one inch over that at 6'1". Is anyone else using this or the similar asym hammocks like the Ultralite Backpacker, that are slightly over the recommended height??

    This has got me looking at the Speers now since there will be a significant weight increase if I have to step up to a HH Explorer Ultralight Asym.

    I'm right at 6' and my ULB is probably a little too short for me. I can get comfortable, but I like more room to stretch out. My homemade does great.

    At 6'1" my ULBA works, but is shorter than I'd like; so I recently bought an Explorer UL.

    Sometimes it pays to be short. I'm 5'7 and love my Hyperlite.
    Hennessy could do a better job on their site describing the Hyperlite.
    It is not even listed on their model comparison chart.

    I think they could use a whole new website, it looks a bit dated.
