    The BIAS WWM comes in 52",56",60", and 64" widths. When I got my first WWM I got it in the 52" and found it to be too narrow for me. I replaced it with a 56" and like it much better. I wanted a hammock that was narrower than my ENO single nest at 60" so there would be less of a fabric wall when laying in the hammock.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    I have no complaints about my 60" wide WWM, nor do I have complaints about my 55" BIAS Hiker Lite (though my feet do pop out from time to time).

    I'm 5 ft. 11 inches.

    Hammock width

    I am 5'10 and I prefer the 60" width. More comfortable lay. Had one at 56" and the feet didn't stay in as well.

    Get the 60, you should be pleased with that. at 6'2" I love my 64".

    My forum name is Fish<><; I'm in the navy; and I hate sleeping on the ground. If I didn't need ground to walk on or measure resistance to, I think I could happily give it up.
