    The HH Safari and the Clark, along with the WB Black Bird are all excellent selections for a big guy _if_ you want to move to an integrated bug net. If you don't need the integrated bug net and you like the ENO single... I say stay with the known commodity and move to the doublenest. All typical disclaimers apply.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    +1 on the Deep Jungle.

    6'4" and 95kg and not a problem. Not sure about the rating on the hammock though - I've seen the XL version rated at 300lb in the blurb but sometimes shown as 250lb!? HH site is a strange beastie at times!

Taffeta is a very robust fabric and IMO ideally suited for hammocks.
    See, this just goes to show that I'm a newb and don't have a clue what I'm talking about lol. Thanks for the info brother!

    I wanted to go the DIY route but I just don't have the equiptment to pull it off. Maybe one of these days when I get a sewing machine i'll take a crack at it.

    I ended up getting the suspension kit off Jack's R Better, I'm really loving the whoopie slings and dutch biners. And I bought an XL model from Hammock Planet. It's really nice, although I expected it to be alittle longer, and it's the same length as my ENO single, but it is about 2 1/2 feet wider.

    all in all I'm pretty happy with my set up now. All I need now is a decent tarp that doesn't weigh a ton lol!

    A friend of min is 6'7" and 250ish and uses a Hammock Bliss single and it works fine for him. I am a 6'2" and 300 on a big frame and the ENO double nest is very comfortable for me.
