  • Good info to know. Thanks!

  • Are these weight guidelines meant to be the weight at which the fabric will fail or design weight? For instance if I am 150 lbs I will exert more than 150 lbs of force on the material when I am getting in and out or shifting around. If I bounce a bit I might exert more than 200 lbs of force on the fabric. I am not going to jump into the hammock but it would be nice to know that there is a safety factor built in to the weight guidelines to account for this.
