  • Optional Zippered Shoulder Pouch (12"x8")allows you to keep essentials close by and is sewn onto the hem on either left or right shoulder positions

  • 2-Ended Stuff Sack sized slightly large to accommodate your suspension 

Dimensions & Average Weights*:

With so many different Fabric choices, varying widths and add ons, weights will vary.   I can estimate a weight, just contact me with the options you are considering.

    Which Hammock is Right for Me?

    There are many different factors involved in this decision and what is right for one person may not be right for another. Here are a few guidelines:

    Integrated Bug Net or Add On - While an integrated bug net is simpler to deploy and think about, it is less flexible than a add on net in varying conditions and more weight in situations that do not call for it.

    Single Layer or Double - This will be affected by the weight of the user and your desired pack weight vs. comfort level. A double layer hammock weighs slightly more, but allows for placement of a air pad (or other insulation) between the layers, holds more weight and helps block wind and mosquitos.

    Fabric - There are also choices in the type and weight of fabrics used. I currently stock and mostly use the Hexon 1.6 line, but also have a variety of ripstops in the 1.1 oz - 1.9 oz range.  And of course can order custom fabrics as needed.

    The below weight guidelines are just estimates and generally focus on the limits of comfort in the hammock, as the closer you get to the limits of a material, the comfort tends to decrease more quickly. And these guidelines apply mostly to standard Nylon Ripstops. Some of the newer fabrics being developed and carried by some of the material vendors (such as Dutchware or Ripstopbytheroll), may have different weight guidelines that apply due to types of material and construction methods.

    With a single layer hammock of 1.1 oz ripstop, it is generally recommended for use under 175 lbs. Going over 150, you will notice a slight loss in performance in lay. If you choose to go with the double layer 1.1, then the weight range increases to under 250 lbs.

    1.6 oz ripstop fills in the gap between 1.1 & 1.9. It is recommended for weights under 200 lbs so as not to affect performance. A double layer 1.6 would increase that to around 350 lbs. This dos not apply to the Hexon 1.6 line, which is constructed differently than standard Ripstops.  It is rated to 350 lbs in a single layer, and 500 in a double.

    A hammock of 1.9 oz ripstop is recommended for under 225 lbs, while a double layer of 1.9 oz ripstop is good for up to 400 lbs.

    *All weights are an average weight based on current materials used. At times, due to different manufacturing processes from the material suppliers, these weights may change slightly.

    I just received my Hexon Wide 1.6, 12ft long, 70" wide Tree Runner Hammock. Being 6'1 and 245 lbs, finding a hammock that doesn't squeeze my shoulders or limit me from stretching out has proven difficult. However, this hammock solves all of those issues! It's incredibly comfortable, light, and the workmanship is top notch. Perfect hammock. Thank you!

    This is my day hike nap and lunch hammock. I also take it when I chooses to tent. So light and easy to setup. Comfortable to sit and eat lunch or nap on a warm sunny day. Great craftsmanship and fantastic quality. Fast shipping and great communication.

    I got an 11' 1.6 oz and couldn't be happier. It's got little to no calf ridge with the right sag and the adjustable ridgeline makes it super easy to find that sweet spot. I like this thing more then my bed! I get exited to climb into it at night and have been going to bed earlier on the trail. The only problem is getting out of it in the morning, it's just so comfortable.

    My new 11' Treerunner SL is fantastic. If I set the ridgeline at 109-110 inches and find the sweet spot...there is little to no calf ridge or shoulder squeeze. Excellent workmanship and super fast customer service. Don't hesitate, just order right now!
