I actually wrote the wrong hammock down when I sent that email- the one
I am interested in is the Extreme light racer a-sym (I am 6-3, 185 lbs,
so this one seems more appropriate for my size). I read your review of
the adventure racer a while ago. I am assuming that the ELRA-S is made
similarly to the adventure racer (silnylon?) but according to the
Hennessy site, same size as the ultralight backpacker (with a smaller
tarp 80 x 125).
The durability issue shouldn't be a problem. My gear is already
ultralight, so I do take care with it. How do you make out in bad
weather with the small tarp? (although yours is about 29 " narrower than
the ELRA-S, 51 x 118). Also, can these lightweight models be set up on
the ground if need be, like the others?

Look at my users report post on BPL Geartester under
Hammocks/Adventure Racer for an appraisal of this jewel. In a nut
shell, if you meet the maximum weight requirements (as Coy stated
this is ambiguous-either 180 or 200 lbs) you should consider it. My
only concern is its durability, however, it, like all Hennessey
products, is well constructed. This is the only possible downside I
see to it. Warning: it will levitate- secure it with ample weights!
