      For 195 lbs, I'd go with the 1.9 oz. JMHO.

      If you want to sell any of the 1.9 oz, let me know by PM, please. I
      think most of the ripstop ends up in the SE US. I've only seen it
      over here once, and only in the 1.1 oz weight. Not looking to pay
      much, just to take some off your hands if you find yourelf drowning
      in it and ship stuff often.
