For myself, one of the major reasons I took up hammocking was the savings
in weight and volume I could achieve by carrying a hammock vs a tent. For
many of the coldweather solutions the added bulk swings the balance back
toward the tent option.
Weight is one reason but consider the convenience of a hammock when there is no "flat" upon which to set up a tent or when the campsite is filled with noisy campers and you might want to move down the trail a ways. Added bulk is only necessary if your sleeping bag is light and your pads are inadequate. If there is not a huge advantage of weight for a tent to be first choice then the many choices offered by a hammock make more sense.
Of course, each person needs to hike their own hike.
