    I can't decide on a 1.1 single or a 1.7 single. Brandon says the former is for 150# or lighter and I weigh 162#.

    Any particular reason for not doing a 1.1 double?

    don't forget to factor in all the extra gear you'll have inside... pad, sleeping bag, stowed gear on the shelf, pillow, clothes. I'd go with the 1.7, of the two options.

    I don't think 162 will have any problems at all in a double 1.1. Most folks don't start noticing any real stretch till they get closer to 200. I'm closer to 225 and can still sleep in Genuine Draft's 1.1. Not as comfortable, but still more comfortable than many of my other hammocks. Well, IMO anyway.
    Trust nobody!

    he wrote 1.1 single, unless he meant double, then I'd agree also.

    1.1 double and the 1/4 inch ccf pad

    I played around with the 1.1 double WBBB and a piece of quater inch closed cell foam (bought from Speer Hammocks)...awesome combination!
    I still hate a foam pad on the outside of my pack compared to a UQ in the pack but sometimes the 1/4 inch is all that is needed...just a super perq of the Warbonnet hammock.
