    Probably not the heaviest 1.1 single BB user at 59 Kg. At my weight the 1.1 provides a much flatter lay than the HH ULBP. Degree of flatness may become more of factor before weight limits are reached. Need input from those with more mass who have tried both the 1.1 and 1.7 single layer.

    That was discussed in this thread, and this thread. 200 pounds seems to be the agreed upon threshold between the two weights of fabric as far as how much the fabric stretches. If over 200 pounds then buy a 1.7 fabric weight hammock to reduce the amount of stretch.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    If you put too much weight in a 1.1 and it stretches does it return or is it forever?

    Once it is stretched it stays that way, same with Hennessy Hyperlites.

    well, for the single layers, the 1.1 stretches more, and the single 1.7 seems to stretch alot less. i'd recommend the single 1.7 for anyone over 140/150. you'll see a noticeably flatter lay over the 1.1. the single 1.1 can certainly hold much more weight, but too much stretch and you start to lose comfort characteristics.

    for double layers i recommend the double 1.1 up to 200 and double 1.7 above that for the same reasons.

    I ordered a double 1.1, does this mean I'll have to watch my weight? I'm under 200 lbs, but not by much...

    Nah, I'm well over 200 and sleep just fine in Genuine Draft's double 1.1.
