Happy New Year to all! I'm brand new to hiking, having recently done a few miles on the AT, but I'm very excited about this new hobby. I am seriously considering purchasing a hammock but I can't decide which brand. a flat lie is my number one requirement, with weight being a close second (I think they are ALL lighter than my tent), and roominess third. The ones that look the most intriguing to me are the JRB Bridge and the Clark NX-250. I think I like the spreader bar concept. However, all the research has my head spinning. I realize there is a lot of personal choice involved, but I would sure like to hear some seasoned users' advice/thoughts! Anyone?
