Re: DAM Dilemma - Exped or Warmlite?
- My Stephenson's DAM is sold as the 64. It's 70" long. The width dimensions
Head = 10"
Shoulder = 28"
Foot = 20"
I measured it uninflated.

weigh 175, so the 8mm double layer should suit you very well and give
a significant safety margin. The silk is really comfy too, but gets
nasty looking quickly, which adds character... David with no trailname
- Thank you all for your advice, opinions and experience. I just
overnighted a check to Warmlite for the 70" DAM (the largest one),
I'll let you know what happens. I hope to field test it in the
Adirondacks the weekend of the 20th (they are pretty sure they can
have it to me by then). I have a cabin right next to me for a bail-out
I'm experimenting with a Coleman air mattress now to see if I need to
adjust the "raise" of the sides in my Speer-type hammock, given that I
know I'll be riding higher. Gotta love those double sheet bend ends-
piece of cake to undo and redo! Thanks again to whoever suggested that.
