    warbonnet MMMMMM

    so i've been lusting over this blackbird hammock for quite some time now. i've finally made the decision to sell my last tent () and raise funds for one. is the 1.1 just a lighter weight?

    It's a lighter weight and has a 'lighter' load-bearing capacity.

    As an example, I have a 1.1 double-layer; I'm 5'10" and weigh about 170. The DL 1.1 is rated for up to 250 lbs. The DL 1.7, as another example, is rated for up to 375 lbs.

    Brandon has all the specs right on the warbonnet homepage.

    Hope this helps.

    Also the 1.1 is mosquito proff and the 1.7 is not. Although in theory this does not matter bc most of the time you will have bottom insulation.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Weight of the material doesn't have anything to do with mosquito proof... a double layer in either 1.1 or 1.7 will be mosquito proof. Single layer will not... unless you soak it in permethrin.

    1.1 is a lighter weight and holds less weight. I believe the max recommended is 185lbs. 1.1 Double gets about 250lbs max. 1.7 single is about 220lbs max. While the 1.7 double is over 300lbs.

    I'm down grading from a 1.7 single to a 1.1 single. But then again I am 5'4" and weigh on average 155lbs. I can get away with it.

    Doubles give you the option of putting a pad between the layers for insulation too.
