    It's a 1.1 Double. I talked to Brandon about which model to get, and given my weight (155), he recommend either a 1.1 Double or a 1.7 Single. I went with the double because I liked the option of adding a pad when necessary, and also because I had heard that the double layered hammocks were more bugproof.

    As for the suspension, I have the adjustable webbing straps, and so far I like them just fine. They are very easy to adjust, and work well with the large trees we have here in northern California. I might give the rope/treehugger combination a try at some point, but for now I'm very satisfied with my current setup

    WBBB sanctuary

    Congrats,

    It's amazing how spacious the BB is. It's like a roomy, comfy sanctuary. Almost deceiving when you look at it from the outside, it just doesn't look that big. But once you crawl inside, this cavernous, floating hideaway appears. I think Brandon has figured out how to tear a hole in the space-time-continuum. A wormhole to hammock nirvana.

    Not all who wander are lost.

    Nah, just another fan. Although, I do have a fez laying around here somewhere.
