    Burrow 50* Weights

    Im considering getting a 50* Burrow for the summer months but need some additional info. Ive sent a couple emails to Hammock Gear with no response so I'm hoping someone can help

    I looking for the actual weights on the following since they only list one weight on their website

    1. Regular length, extra wide
    2. Long length, extra wide
    3. Long length, regular width

    Thanks!

    This is a bit of an oversimplification, but you could probably get a pretty close estimate, by simply multiplying the nominal weight by the ratio of the extra length/width over the nominal length/width. Doing that, I get the following weights.

    Nominal: 13.52 oz
    Wide: 14.87 oz
    Long: 14.98 oz
    Wide and Long: 16.48 oz

    I would expect the actual values to be slightly lower due to edge effects, but these numbers should be pretty close.

    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."
