    Hammock for tall guys? Any ideas?

    Im new to the hammock world. I want to know if there are any hammocks that can hold a tall (6 foot 2 inches) guy. Thanks.

    Hennessy Hammock has one for people over 6 feet tall. I just got mine in the mail.

    most fellers find an eleven footer to be quite comfortable.
    while i'm 6'1" i'm sure you would be comfortable in a LO or a NO.
    their what i use.

    +1 on the 11 footers. Something from Wilderness Logics (like the Lite Owl), BIAS (like the Weight Weenie) or Dream Hammocks (like the Dangerbird) are probably going to do best. The BB is definitely a great hammock, but 11 footers are just a bit comfier.

    Also, a bridge hammock will easily fit you. I really like my Warbonnet RidgeRunner.

    I'm 6'1" and can get very comfortable in my GTs which are actually under ten foot long... Have you tried hammocks and been uncomfortable or are you just guessing that they will be? If it's the second you may be surprised.

    I am just guessing. I get annoyed by the little things (like hammock length) easily. So I would rather have surplus length than too little.

    I have the regular Hennessy asym expedition. and I'm 6'2. They make a longer one, if you think you will be scrunched. I haven't had an issue.
