    I'm 5' 10" and 200# and Brian recommended a 56" WWM or the WW, which is 62". I ordered a 60" WWM based on posts on this forum.

    Be aware it's going to be a while before you get it, I'm at 3 weeks. Sounds like they have a LOT going on right now, so be patient!

    Looks like Highbean has made up his mind, but if others are reading this looking for HH suspension options... I just added a carabiner and two rappelling rings to each of the standard HH tree straps. 30+ nights (20 different hangs) in and I'm as happy as can be. Recently set up in a downpour in under 3 minutes; laughed in comfort as I watched my ground-based buddies slosh around in the mud looking for 'high-ground'.

    Be careful with that method and keep an eye on your rope. The rap rings will wear thru the rope. I stopped doin it that way after I noticed it happenin to mine.

    WWM advice

    Thanks for the help guys. Just ordered a WW DL with a buginator and whoopies. Got a Superfly headed my way as well. Thanks Brian for all the help over the phone. Sure made my decision a lot easier!

    You should have been at the Buffalo River Hang. We all got rainchecks for one heck of a deal when we decide to order another hammock.

    Sorry... You would have had to been there.

    You will love your new gear. BIAS is awesome. I've used my Micro for many, many trips and still love it as much as I did when I got it. My Buginator goes with me on all my outings as well. Brian and Shane are great guys to hang out with and they try and make customer service important. That goes a long way with me.

    This is exactly what I did when I had my HH. worked like a charm.
