Hammock width is an important contributor to the comfort of your hammock, but is secondary to length.
Most of the time we try to use as much of the available fabric possible to make the hammock as wide as we can possibly get it. If you are using one our wider fabrics, we can certainly trim the fabric down to make your hammock narrower. Just indicate your desired width when placing your order. While we can always make your hammock narrower, we cannot make it wider than the fabric will allow.
|Fabric||Max Hammock Width|
|1.1oz Ripstop Nylon||58in|
|1.6oz HyperD XL||74in|
A good starting point...
|5ft 7in or shorter||10ft||58-60"|
|5ft 8in to 6ft||10ft||62-66"|
|6ft to 6ft 4in||11ft||64-72"|
|6ft 5in or taller||12ft||72"|
Of course comfort is a very subjective and personal thing, but this chart may give you a rough idea of where you should start.
