    A good sling to put your butt in

    I haven't been too active on the forums lately because I've been too busy hanging in my BIAS WWM 1.1! I'm ~150 pounds, 5'6" and the Weight Weenie Micro is the most comfortable hammock I've laid in. The 1.1 does not stretch too much. I also have the Nano Buginator and it is very easy to use. You should clear out any underbrush under your hammock when you use the net though because otherwise it may snag. I use Whoopie Hooks and they are very convenient, compact, and secure. I really like my whole new system. I've previously used a Warbonnet Traveler 1.7 and a Warbonnet Blackbird 1.1 double and my WWM 1.1 is more comfortable for me. I should note that I bought the fixed ridgeline and that is very nice too.

    Thanks for the great products and the great service, guys!

    The Micro and Nano Buginator is the setup that's always in my pack and I don't leave home without them..

    I sent Brian an email, but never got a reply. So, I'm hoping some members might help me by answering some questions.

    I'm intrigued that you find the Weight Weenie Micro to be more comfortable than the popular Warbonnet Traveler & Blackbird.

    I assumed that a 'micro' hammock would compromise comfort due to smaller sizing. However, upon checking the specs (52" wide x 11' (132") long), it seems the WWM is not really a 'small' hammock. Maybe it's micro moniker refers to it's light weight of 6 oz. (130 grams) for 52" wide?

    I'd love to cut down on the weight of my hammock set-up. So, I have a couple of questions...

    1) Do the Weight Weenie & Weight Weenie Micro use the same material?

    2) Do you find the WWM at standard 52" width to be as comfortable as other popular hammocks, such as standard sized Hennessy's, ENO's, Grand Trunks, etc.?

    3) Which width do you recommend?

    4) Do you recommend the Knotty Mod ($25)?

    5) Does the Buginator in Nano material significantly cut down on airflow through the material? Or, would you recommend the Standard material for someone who sometimes feels like he can't breathe in a bug-netted hammock?

    Thanks in advance for your advice,

    I have a WWM and a WWM double layer - I like 60" wide. They are both the most comfortable hammocks I've tried, including the WBBB. However, comfort appears to be a very personal thing with hammocks, so your results may be different. I haven't felt the need for the knotty mod - it addresses a problem I don't seem to have.

    I also have the Buginator and Nano Buginator - haven't noticed any difference in airflow. The only time I have ever felt like I couldn't breathe in a bugnet was in 95 degree heat with 80% humidity - won't be doing that again. I rarely camp in summer because of that.

    Sorry for the late response, I just realized I wasn't logged in for the first time in 6 months. I think there has been some issues with Brian's email, but it should be working now.

    It looks like your questions have been answered, but if you still have some feel free to shoot me what you want to know.

    FWIW, since I don't backpack much, (mostly kayak camp) I'm starting to get into it more. I usually use the "heavier" Camper model in a double layer with a Knotty mod. I also use a standard Buginator. That being said, I'm going to make myself a WWM (probably single layer) and a Nano Buginator for a trip in a few weeks to Roan Mt. with some meetup folks.
    It'll be alright Friday!

    The materials are differnt between the WW and Micro. The material for the WW has a little bit of a softer feel to it and higher weight limit but both are very comfort.

    Any net will cut down on your airfrow but I really can't tell the difference between the airflow thru the Buginator and Nano Buginator.

    My go-to set up is a 60" wide Mico with the Knotty mod and the Nano Buginator.
    The Knotty m od is well worth the extra coin.

    The WWM seems like a great hammock. Too bad it is only offered in camo.

    +1 for the knotty mod. I have the hiker light and really really like it
