    What width

    I'm 5' 4". In a Brazilian hammock, what width do i want?

    I'm trying to make sense of all the options i see. Apart from color, width seems to be an important detail. But i don't know what i actually need or could use.

    Im 5'4"-ish and Im using a hammock that is 118" x 80". Its big, probably more than I need but I can lay quite comfortably with a 98" ridgeline. I could go with less length on the ridgeline and lay even flatter but need to hang the straps higher in the tree than I can reach to get the hammock off the ground high enough to suit me. The 80" width is nice but I could probably do with less because alot of the width is wasted. It does give me more options though.

    I went ahead and bought the hammocks. I guessed and got doubles. Let's see how it works out.
