    Yep, it will work great. The same material that many people here use to DIY their first hammock in fact.

    Hancock ripstop is heavy stuff, probably 1.9 oz per sq yd. But it's definitely a good deal!

    It is 1.9, I weighed it the first time I picked some up for my first DIY hammock.

    I'm hoping 330# on a double layer. If not it will be a rude awakening
