    Hey Shug,

    If you can make the fall hang at the gorge, I will bring one for you to try.

    I got in one at the Hot Springs Hang and I really liked it. I like how you don't have to be dedicated to lay one way in it and the view was unobstructed. I have a friend who is looking for a hammock with a flat lay but he is 6'5" and weighs 300 lbs. The JRB Bridge is too short. Would he fit in the SB?

    I'm 6' and fit nicely in the Light Hiker. The Light Hiker is 8" shorter than the original SwitchBack. So I'd guess he would fit fine in the original SwitchBack. Probably want to go with the 1.9 double layer for his weight.

    Shug, don't get in it unless you want to buy it.

    I'm 6'2" and have plenty of room to spare in the Classic. I can't imagine three more inches would make much difference. Of course, at his weight he'd have to go with a heavier frabric.
