- Sep 24, 2009Hi, I am a big guy too at 360lbs. I bought a Trek Light Gear hammock it is rated to 450lbs ... it is nice feeling parachute material. I am very happy with it, and so far no failures under my weight.

I tip the scales at 295lbs...what material choices do I have? I have ed
speers book (read cover to cover!), and would like to DIY a speer style, but
I am confused with material type and choices, from what I read I am just on
the border of supplex and/or cordura, 1.9 ripstop is out, but I heard I can
double it? I doubt that this would be a lightweight option compared to a
tarp/groundsheet, but just want to have options...
Any suggestions? ??
