    6'6'' 200lbs in a Explorer Deluxe

    I just received my Explorer Deluxe Zip and at 6'6'' I just wanted to let everyone know that it fits very nicely. This is my first hammock and I just set it up in my basement and love it! I am going to sleep in it tonight and my girlfriend thinks that I am crazy She did get in it for a little while and said it was very comfortable though!

    But the main purpose of this thread was to say that for my height and weight the Explorer Deluxe is a good option. I can't wait to get outside this spring now!

    I got my Explorer this past October. It's been great so far! I did replace the stock suspension with whoopies and hooks...makes setup a bit faster.

    That's cool to hear. If I ever get my buddy into a hammock, he's 6'6" and about 220.

    Welcome to the HF Matt, and to the dark side! I started with an HH Explorer UL 6 years ago. I have numerous others now, but that hammock used with the HH Super Shelter is still one of my favorites! Still very competitive IMO.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    So you have an inch on me, and when I got my HH I was about 215. You should be more than comfortable in yours!

    Judging by the height/weight ratio in here I'm the heavy of the group lol. Better double my time at the gym!

    OP is TALL! HOLY!
