always test with your hangs and push down into the hammock. Or push down on the ridge line.

I have topped mine out at 285 and they dont budge, unless, it slips off the toggle which has happened to me twice, and it is quite the sudden drop
milk that bury, double or like me quadruple check your toggles and hop in for some whoopie hangin!!

First upgrade right into Dutchware! Well met my good hanger.
Now I am jealous
At 285 My whoopie slings hold me just fine, I admit I was scared of them and used straps for a year or so before I took the plunge and bought them, now I wish I had purchased them sooner.
I bet you will too.

see you on the trail,
I think I'm going straight to the straps without a toggle for now. Maybe I'll get more brave later.
Took a while to get to this point!
Thanks for clarifying the "Milk" advice. I got it as soon as you said "Chinese Finger Cuffs". It made total sense after that.
And for the rest of my rotund brethren; thanks for the reassurance. It makes me feel much better about this.
I fell just right about two feet on to the granite while fishing in the High Sierras a few years back and cracked my tailbone. Then had to hike out about 3,000 feet and five miles down. By the time I got to the bottom I swear I was seeing in black and white. That definitely made me a bit gun-shy!
