RE: Hammock Camping My rig - long
That sounds about right to me. I know you can get an even
lower overall shelter weight with an HH. I think that's
because everything is fitted to everything else, so there's
no extra material.
I also use the HH Expedition and UltraLight Backpacker
models. Fast, light, simple. But I like the top entry
hammocks better for convenience of use.

Thanks; I'm interested in comparing hammock weight to tent
if I take out the poncho liner and the pad (36.5 oz), that
- 36.5) 54.0 oz. That's very comparable to a one-person
tent; my Light
Year CD weighs 63.8 oz, for example.
MessageThe Velcro is 1" wide; it does gather lint & debris, but this is not a serious problem. I like the Velcro because it always works (unlike zippers) and I can grab the bug net edges anywhere and open it to get out, even in total darkness (handy when the call of nature calls in the middle of the night)....EdHow wide are the strips of Velcro on the sides. I really like that idea. Have you had any problems with leaves or dirt or any of natures other elements making the Velcro unable to stay shut? No I haven't gotten the book I'm looking forward to reading it. What is the farthest distance trees can be apart? I hope I have been a bother. I'll be ordering it on the 12th or 15th of Feb when I get back from the honeymoon. Get your thread ready. :)-Jason S
