    Light hiker?.

    I already miss my SB that I just sold ...
    I want to get another one and was thinking about getting the SB lite hiker but can't find the difference or specs on the LH and the reg SB's.
    Can someone post the specs on the LH?
    Thank you

    Not much help but all I know is the SBLH is 8 inches shorter thant the regular SB. I think they are the same width.

    Light Hiker is 8" shorter than a standard SB.

    I have both a 1.1 SB LH and a 1.1 SB, and personally I prefer the LH.

    RW, you've sold just about every hammock under the sun over the past few weeks..... Inquiring minds want to know.... Have you finally settled on one?

    I really can't decide now..
    I don't think I want a LH now but I am not sure if I want the colors that are offered on the 1.1dlb SB's. ( green or blue)

    I'm 5'0" and started out with the original SB...It was huge and I called it the Taj Mahal but felt that I had a lot of wasted fabric.

    sold it and got the LH and.... I really prefer the internal comfort of the original SB. Somehow, I don't seem to be able to get as good a spacious diagonal lay in the LH.
