made a single-layer hammock with it...kinda dicey. It holds me just
fine but I don't think it'll be very durable.
I usually use untreated ripstop nylon instead of DWR for the hammock
body...just think it feels better, and it's much easier to find at
Walmart. My insulation provides the wind resistance.
I think my next down hammock will be two layers of 1.1oz for the
body, just because I don't have any 1.9oz downproof. Should be much
stronger than a single layer because the top layer won't have any
horizontal seams to weaken the body.
