alrighty so I have all but decided I am going to go with the switchback. After work today all I have done is read up on all of the various hammocks and everyone's opinions on them.
I have never really been a back sleeper and as I mentioned earlier I sleep on my side and often toss and turn.
Now I must decide if I want to go with the light hiker or the full switchback.
I am only 5' 10" and 170 pounds.
I liked the idea of the Blackbird mostly because of the shelf and just being able to keep my rain gear there or a fleece. Just some pieces of gear I would like to have quick access to. I was thinking would it be possible to attach some sort of pocket to the end of the switchback that you can stuff a jacket into or a fleece without it affecting the comfort of the hammock?
for those that have ordered the Light hiker does it come with the whoppie slings and tree hugger straps? On the tree to tree trail website it doesn't specifically say it does.
I was wondering if you would think the mac cat tarp that tree to tree offers would be the best choice. I was also looking at the hex rain fly from Hennessy as it is the same size. Does anyone have any experience with either?
