    Which one?!

    Hello all! I've finally got some extra money (thank you GI bill!) and I'm pretty set on the wbbb. I just need to figure out which is best for me. Strength is important, since I'm a "hearty" 300lbs. I'll be doing the majority of my hanging between late spring-early fall (so basically summer camping).

    I just want to know why the $20 difference in the double 1.9/1.1 and the double 1.7? A bit of a weight penalty, but is that it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure, I have the multicam version, I'm 200#, of course no capacity issues. Love it.

    I would assume it's because the price of camo material is higher. Just got my multicam and it is noticeably more supportive than my 1.0dbl.

    camo fabrics do tend to cost more when you can find them.

    I use the 1.7 double (did not have camo version when I bought mine) but you could go with the 1.7 double or the camo. If I was buying one for the first time again I would go with the camo.

    Thanks all. I wasn't sure if it was the camo or not, just couldn't figure it out!
