    Single 1.1 for up to 200lbs.?

    Does anyone here in the 185-200lbs. range have a single 1.1 BB? How do you like it and does it adequately support your weight and provide a flat enough comfortable lay?

    I do ...... 185 lbs .... comfy and supportive. My reason was going lightweight as possible.

    I'm alotALOT heavier than you and single layer has held me fine. How? I don't know, but it does. I can't personally speak for BB and Brandon's fabric, which I'm sure are top-notch, (by the way Brandon, you are a genius).
    Care and caution need to be observed. NO SHARP POKEY THINGS, NO HOT SPARKS.Same as any other tent, sleeping bag or backpack.

    AND don't lay in your almost-finished DIY single layer 1.1hammock with a pencil in your pocket while your wife is pinning the bugnetting all around you. what can you do with a 4 and 5 foot sections of 1.1 ripstop nylon...hmmm. The hammock did not rip but that hole right in the bottom is just daring me to take it out so it can fail...LOL

    or leave a couple of tent stakes in your pocket, I got lucky and they fell out and didn't do any damage. Haste makes waste.
