    Grand Trunk Fabric Weight

    Can someone please direct me to the thread or help me with the following... What is the fabric square yard weight for both the Grand Trunk Ultralight and the Grand Trunk Nano 7? The issue is I am compiling a list of features of all my different hammocks so I can compare the specifications. Secretively my Nano 7 is one my favorites. Maybe the Nano 7 was made for my hobbit like features! Please advise. P.S. I started this inquiry in a another thread but I think I chose the wrong title to get multiple responses.Thanks

    I was going to reply to the other thread, but I would've just confirmed what the first poster said. The nano 7 is probably 1.1 ripstop nylon, while ultralight is polyester taffeta.

    The nano 7 is 9ftx4ft=36 ft2=4 yd2, so 4x1.1=4.4 makes sense since it's close the 5oz minimal weight of the hammock.

    edit: more accurately, 5oz/4yd2=1.25oz/yd2, which is close since threads aren't perfectly weightless.

    Similarly the ultralight is 9.5ftx4.5ft=42.75ft2=4.75yd2 and I imagine the built on suspension is close to 2oz again (like the nano7) so the hammock itself will be 10oz, so 10oz/4.75yd2=2.1oz/yd2

    Again, this is all approximate.

    Grand Trunk UL s-hooks and ropes weigh 84g or about 3 oz. I just put paracord and and wire gate carabiners on mine so I had them lying out and threw them on the scale. The hammock weighed 272g or about 9 5/8 oz(with approx. 2.5' of paracord, but without the carabiners). Hope that helps....didn't really feel like taking the paracord out to weigh the hammock by itself.

    So that would be 272g/4.75yd2=57.263g/yd2=2.0199oz/yd2

    Again, aproximately 2oz/yd2

    Thanks Coded-Dude
