    I second the Hennessey UL Explorer Asym

    I agree w/Bird Dog. I'm your height and weigh a little less. To save weight, I used an UL Backpacker Asym for my first hammock for nearly 2yrs, even though I knew I exceeded the recommended height. It worked, but it seemed I would always drift one way or another so either my head would be touching the side or my legs would be a little uncomfortable.

    So recently I bought the above-mentioned UL Explorer. No more problems! It's just right, and the weight penalty isn't huge, IMO.

    You're going to love it. Don't forget to buy the Snakeskins! And to stay warm I use the Nest & No Sniveller from JRB.

    I second that. I'm 6'0" and my UltraLight Backpacker Asym is a little too short for me to get completely comfortable.

    You'll be happy with the Hennessy UL Explorer. Go to www.hennessyhammock.com and click on their Demo and Clearance sale (front page). E-mail them and have them send you their current list for sale. I've bought two of my three Hennessy hammocks this way. They both looked brand new and never used. Probably were.
