    Oh noooooooooo!

    I was getting out of my WBBB dbl 1.1 and I heard the dreaded sound of something tearing. I looked underneath and the bottom layer tore about 10 inches perpendicular to the length of the hammock. Sucks! Do you think it is still sleep-able?

    Oh noooooooooo!

    I would say it depends on how much you and your gear weigh. Anywhere near or under 200lbs. I don't see why not.

    I'm about 185 lbs. Do you think duct tape or some sort of patch would be helpful?

    I'm not sure how the hammock is constructed, but if you could sew on a ripstop patch, I would think that would hold.

    Strange, what tore the hammock? Picture would help determine if the rip is a fatal blow or not. If it is going to rip, Duct tape won't help you. You need Dutch tape.

    I would touch base with Brannon @ Warbonnet first before I tried to repair it.
    his customer service is excellent.
    just a thought
    koh
