And 19 oz is okay for a shelter, assuming there is no wind, or rain, or it gets colder. Then that hammock becomes a large, cold, water Basket. I am actually not even considered an ultralight backpacker. My base weight for a four day trip is about 16-17 lbs. I'd need to shave another 6-7 lbs off to be considered ultralight. The idea is that shaving ounces where you can becomes pounds off your pack and a more enjoyable hike. Try it. There is a $35 hammock on Arrowhead Equipment's website that is 11 feet long and weighs 8 oz. that is roomier and far lighter than the ENO. And there are better, lighter straps than their Atlas straps, too. Enjoy!
