Hammock Gear tarp and BIAS hammock setup

This is a custom BIAS hammock made from ultralight 1.1 ripstop nylon that weighs a whopping 12 ounces. Whoopie slings are run through the channels and are used with the toggle system. Ideal when trees are far apart and the hardware -- carbon toggles -- plus the hammock, whoopies, straps and sack come in at under one pound. This is perfect for gram weenies and for those trying to rid themselves of weighty hardware like hooks and carabiners.

I ordered my WWM hammock in the 60" width – primarily so I could fairly compare it to my Speer hammock (which is 9' x 5'). The WWM hammock, however, is 11 feet long. I was astounded at the comfort that additional two feet of material added. I'm right at 6 feet tall, and even in a 9' hammock I find myself "fighting" the gathering above my head. Not at all a problem with any of the BIAS hammocks, which are all 11 feet long.

    Chad, I recently switched from a Warbonnet Traveler (65″ x 10′) to a BIAS Weight Weenie (62″ x 11′, 8 oz) with the knotty mods. Which width did you get in the Weight Weenie Micro? It comes in 52″ (6 oz), 56″ (6.5 oz), 60″ (7 oz) and 64″ (7.4 oz). If you got the 52″ or the 56″, it probably is too narrow for you, even if you had the proper suspension.

    I absolutely love my weight Weenie. It is the most comfortable hammock I have ever owned (the 6th). I am 6′, 160 lb. and the 11′ length in conjunction with the knotty mods really make a difference. The mods pull the side by my head up a few inches cutting some wind and keep my feet and top quilt from sticking off the other side.

    I am sold on the BIAS hammocks, particularly because of the length and knotty mods.

      Gerry,

      Yeah, it is the 52″… and as you pointed out, I think it may be a tad too narrow, but I will give it a few more tries before going a different direction.
