    I like taking my UL Hammock on longer hikes to reduce bulk and weight.
    Figured that would be the point?

    which company is making it for you? can you contact them and change the material of your hammock....that is if you decide you don't want to chance it

    Being the devout gram weenie that I am, I thought the same as you... and if it was also my most comfortable hammock (which it was) how do you go wrong? Right?

    Just a few weeks prior to the hammock failure I was doing four days on the Laurel Highlands Trail. Five+ hours from house and days from the car, in the pouring rain. If it had failed on that trip, and I did have it with me for that trip, the scenario would have been very, very different. In the end, my efforts to reduce my TPW paid off, because I could easily add back in a more robust [read:heavier] hammock with very little regret.

    There is a point were ultra lite becomes.....
    Yes, my pack weighs 70lbs, but it's all light weight gear....

    Are there still a lot of people using monolite hammocks? I'm curious to know how they're holding up (or not). I know there was that crit fail and another account of it seeming to stretch out over time. I'm wondering if the material hasn't got much elasticity and tends to fatigue. Also the pictures of it look like there's a thin film in between the mesh, or is it a netting material?
