    I've never seen that distinction anywhere. How do I know what I'm getting?

    Most places won't tell you, and usually because they simply have no idea. And really, for hammock purposes, it's not going to make all that much of a difference in the end. Don't feel like you have to search out the High Tenacity Type 66 - you'll do just fine with the other. It's just a better quality and will handle loads better.

    I believe, on JoAnn's website, their "Sport" ripstop is listed as type 66. All the ripstops I carry are, and beyond that, just ask if it's important to you - some companies will know, others won't.
