      Sounds like a great hike. Your right about the couples hammock.

      the trease floatingdome2 from


      would work but at 12 lbs it dont make a lot of sence except for
      maybe car camping or a short hike in and base camping. plus it is
      not a regular production item and no price was mentioned but going
      from the price of the FlyingBivy at $549 i bet it is pretty steep.

      The Dryad from


      might work but is advertized for 1. I imagine you would end up
      rooling into each other too much. but it weights 6 lbs so is more
      in line with a 2 man tent. still a might heavy for a thr-hike but
      might be worth a try for a shorter hike. I would try it at home
      first though.
