    I can only speak for the WBBB 1.7 DL. It is very comfortable. I don't know if there's any difference in the feel of the 1.1 as compared to the 1.7. I am heavier than you by about 70-75 pounds and probably several years older too. According to the WB website I could have gotten by with a 1.1 and don't really gain much by going with the 1.7 DL, but I find it to be very comfortable. Another thing about getting the 1.7 DL is that it gave me the ability to loan it to some friends or family that are over 200 pounds. Maybe someone that has both the SL and DL can chime in here and give you their thoughts. HH.

    I'm in the range of 185-189 lbs steady and could have went either way and got the 1.7.

    I liked it so much, I've got a 1.1 on order for the same reason, as I find myself outfitting friends for trips. I'm wondering what kind of difference I will feel, if any.

    I have the 1.0 BB and my husband has the 1.7 BB For me personally, I find my husband's hammock feels bigger inside than my hammock does. I know it's weird because these are the same hammock except for the difference of material. I'm 5 foot and my husband is 6'4". The comfort levels in each are the same for me though.
