My head is spinning much like the children doing rolls in Jiblets 'Spinning Cocoon' thread.
I've been reading here for a long time, looked at reviews and spreadsheets, looked at more manufacturers' sites than I can count and I'm still confused.
Here's the important personal stuff:
5' tall, weight definitely under all manufacturers weight limits (yes I'm female and no I don't tell anyone my weight)...
So length of hammock and weight limits are not a concern.
Side sleeper - actually I do more this side, that side, on my back, try another side sleeping than anything else.
Don't like to feel confined at all so I want height/space between me and bug net and don't want to feel like I'm in a cocoon in the hammock.
What I do know I want:
removeable bug net
separate ridge line for fly.
No integrated fly - I know what I want for that.
Not sure if I want a pad in a pocket (know I don't want it in the hammock with me) or whether I'd be happiest with an UQ (or both if needed for cold weather).
Budget is not a major concern, I'd rather spend the money once wisely than have to keep upgrading.
Weight is somewhat of a concern because I have to carry it but I have no intention of going UL, I want comfort over anything else.
And yes, I know it's going to have to come in from the US, shipping is not a problem unless the vendor won't ship across the white line on the map.
If you were me, what would you be buying?
