    Question on the WBBB 1.1?

    Hey guys and gals, I just picked up a second hand but very nice WBBB 1.1 single. I was looking up the stats on it and realized I'm right at the top of the weight rating at 200lbs. Also on a second note, the website says it is only available in slate grey but this one is really an olive drab green, almost as green as my GTUL. Should I be worried about testing it's limits and could this be a unique color for the 1.1 single?

    Colors of WBBB's have varied over the years (multicam is even available now). As to your weight, don't worry about falling through the bottom. The more you weigh, the more the fabric will stretch. You'll get more of a lay like a soft bed than a hard mattress; both of which amount to personal preference.

    Also, Brandon sets them as a guideline and I am sure he incorporates some wiggle room.

    sounds great. I just need to figure out the tension for the two side tie outs and I'm all set. Took a nap in it this afternoon and it sure is comfy.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
