    Weight of 1.75 Lash-it per foot?

    I am planning a project using Lash-it and would like to be able to calculate the weight before I place an order. Does some one have this information as to how much it weighs for 12" section of Lash-it?

    According to this site, the weight of the 1.75 mm lash it is .12 pounds per 100 feet. So I guess that's .0012 pounds per foot.

    .0012 pounds = .0192 ounces = .5443 grams

    If you don't mind my asking, what project are you workin on?

    Thanks for the reply. I am seriously looking into a NOBO AT hike in 2013. I am scrutinizing every bit of gear at the moment as I want to accumulate it over time. That being said I am trying to decide if i should drop major money in upgrading my hammock setup or if I should keep to the setup I use when I hike with my Girlfriend (TT double rainbow). I am trying to get extremely accurate weights of different hammock products to see if i can match the light weight of my ground setup. So far my HH Explorer Deluxe is a bit on the heavy side.

    Proposed Hammock Setup
    MacCat Deluxe Spinn UL (has always been on wishlist) 30' 1.75 mm Zingit continious ridgeline with figure 9, S beaner and nacro prusiks
    Warbonnet BlackBird 1.7 Single
    Hammock Gear 3season Crowsnest 900 fill (should get me through the south)
    Hammock Gear 3 season Burrow 900 fill
    Hammock sock of some kind
    Z-lite shortened for shelters and feet

    Ground setup
    TT double rainbow (already own)
    Neoair regular (upgrade for BA Insulated Air Core)
    Western Mountaineering Megalite

    Just finished my calculations based on manufacturer specs. Looks like the ground setup weighs in at 81 oz and the hammock at 82. The ground setup with a 32* bag should be good for the majority of the trip maybe add a baglinner and send it home when it worms up. The 900 fill hammock gear setup would be good for the beginning but may be overkill in the middle.

    Looks like the tent setup I would want would be about a $500 investment plus possibly a bag liner and the hammock setup $800

    Comfort is the real cost. Not weight or money.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    That is true i could always cut out the blackbird and use my HH. Ideally i would like a wider TQ so I could use shelters if the need arises.
