    WWM

    have been considering a WWM as I want something with no net for this time of year. not sure as to which width to go with. 6' tall and 175 lbs, can i get away with a nice straight lie in the 52" ? any thoughts and experience would be appreciated thanks. Oh, I would be going with a knotty mod

    with an 11' hammock, you won't feel like the hammock is "only" 52",. There are a lot of hammock companies that don't even make shorter hammocks that wide. I happened to be the last person to ever receive a 64" wide from BIAS and the thing is enourmous! don't underestimate the size till it's under your butt.

    I had a DL WWM in 56", it was the perfect width for ME, I am 6'. I have a DL WW in 60" width that I think is wider than I like. I am waiting on delivery of a new DL WW in 56" width. I had the knotty mods put on all of them. I am still not convinced I need them in this hammock.

    I've got the WWM in a 52 dbl. It's plenty wide and is comfortable without all the extra floppy fabric. It's less wide as my ENO and wider than the Clark. I have no problem getting a good diagonal lay and the dbl holds a pad and me very comfortably.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    awesome, thanks everyone. I see most are going with the double. I was hoping a single would be plenty for me, going to invest in an UQ soon, so want to try something a little different . Have the double in my WBBB and enjoy it, just like having choices I realize the price difference is minimal for the extra width, but I'd prefer as small and light as possible.

    I have the 52" single. It is plenty wide. Wide enough that I questioned if it was actually 52" and compared it to my Hennessey to be sure. I weigh 175 as well and the single layer holds me just fine.

    I have a WWM SL and find it very comfortable. 5'10 180 lbs. As an alternative and 'something different,' and especially since you are getting an underquilt, it certainly fits the bill.

    Heck of a view Dave P
    thanks again everybody, the input is much appreciated. Just ordered my micro, went with a 56" single. Some fabulous customer service as well, thanks a lot Brian, the free shipping to Canada was a nice option

    Free shipping to Canada

    Shipping to Canada is inexpensive, but it takes a long time. If you're from the Great White North and don't mind the wait, you can get free shipping, just like the Americans, on orders of $120 or more. Pick International Parcel shipping and use code free2canada and if you're over $120, shipping is free. Typical shipping time to Canada is 10-14 days. There is no guaranteed delivery time, so these are merely estimates. Again, use code:
    free2canada

    Another codes which can help is:
    hfmember
    which offers 10 percent off many items (not including already discounted kits and our DIY supplies)

    Try both codes if you're in Canada and use the one that saves you the most $$.

    I always have more time than money, so I dont mind the wait
    I should have been more specific with my last post about the offer, sorry about that.
