    ciyd, I use a double bottom 1.1 oz. nylon Speers/Risk style hammock and weigh in around 145. No problem. You can permanently attach your bug netting ala Risk

      ciyd,

      I use a double bottom 1.1 oz. nylon Speers/Risk style hammock and weigh in
      around 145. No problem.

      You can permanently attach your bug netting ala Risk and still pitch it on
      the ground, using the tarp over it, where trees are not available. Use
      hiking poles or downed limbs for uprights.
