    What hammock to get for a bigger hanger??

    Hi all!

    Current Hammoch is a DDHammoch Frontline.
    Super impressed with the quality.
    Slept over 100 nights in it without any failure.

    Downside, it is to small for me to be comfortable in wintertime.
    I keep struggeling with my sleeping bag because of the lack of space.

    I am 1,98 m at 125 kg. Since I am not (that) fat, a lot of my weight is in the shoulder area.

    What hammoch will fit me better?
    DIY is not out of the question, but only if there is nothing else that I could buy.

    I have a Snugpack underquilt, it would be a big bonus if I could reuse that on my new setup.

    Thanks for your advice!

    Not sure about shipping issues, but WildernessLogics Nite Owl would fit your bill perfectly. I love my lite owl.

    Do you want a built in net? If so, you might check out DreamHammocks.

    There's lots of options really. If you want a bit more room, get an 11' hammock.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    I'll second the blackbird. have to do the calculation, I'm 6 foot 4 inches and 195 pounds (US).

    My only issue with this one is that I have a bum shoulder and if I don't set it up just right I get a bit of squeeze in the shoulder area and that causes some soreness.

    I'm 6' 1" and 265 pounds. I have an ENO Double Nest which is fine, but I also have a HH Safari which is very roomy. Can't go wrong with the Safari.

    Here it is set up on the Jacks River Trail last summer with my old ENO (it ripped dumping me out on the rocks!) in the background.
