    Ok Hurry I Need Help

    I just sent Counselor a p.m. for his 1.7 double wwbb.
    I believe that may be a bit heavy for me I am 165ish 5'10".
    What would yall advise for me. I intend on buying one in the very near future? what is the double layer for vs single. I guess I would not need more than the 1.1????
    I will more than likely buy the 3 season yeti and a tarp with doors. Does Brandon give discount for buying all 3 from him.

    Hurry with the advice don't want to mess Counselor's sale up.

    Thanks

    I'm 25 lbs heavier than you and a double 1.1 is fine for me and so would be for you.

    If you don't need the extra layer because you'll have an underquilt then
    the single 1.7 is fine for you. yep, got one of those too....

    Beas, you could do either the 1.1 double or the 1.7 single for your weight (about the same as me) and they are all the same length (up to 6-3 or 6-4 I thing) the 1.7 dbl would be a little extra but not bad by any means just weighs a couple oz extra. The double layer give you a place for a pad and helps to hold more weight if needed.
    and yes Brandon dose give a slight discount if you get a tarp with hammock at the same time - I think 10-15 bucks if I remember right, not sure if he dose any more with a quilt or not.

    Either way the 1.7 dbl would not be a bad hammock for you just capable of holding more than your weight, hey it is christmas time, I know I have added a couple pounds, my wife is backing like crazy.
