I just bought a brand new Expedition 2.5 off Craigslist for $75. I didn't realize it wasn't Asym. What I cannot tell from Hennessy site is whether the non-asym can be slept in flat on a diagonal or not.
The second part is, the present October sale has Asyms for $79, but they're yellow and blue. I prefer the dark green and am tempted by camo (if I DIY it will be camo if at all possible). I weigh in at 220, 5'10" and am thinking the Explorer Deluxe Asym at $119 might be better in the long haul, room for gear in there with me.
I'll be motorcycling so the weight is not an issue. Would I be able to lay flatter in the asym and therefor be more comfortable? I'm a side sleeper and flip back a forth a couple times a night on my SelectComfort bed. I'm thinking the Explorer's larger size would be a plus.
I've never slept in a hammock and have't put this one up yet to test it (working two jobs keeps me hopping). I probably won't use it until Spring, and may sew my own (sewed Frostline kits back in the 70's) yet this winter. I don't know enough to choose wisely and seek your advise. I'm guessing if I do buy a new Hennessy I can eBay it for what I put into it at least if it stays new, next Spring, so don't mind investing a bit now for the savings.
Thanks in advance!
