I am going to get a new hennessy backpacker (I get a deal on HH so no war bonnet)
So far I have decided on the following
#Side zip UL backpacker (just the hammock)
#Cat cape rainfly
#Over cover #1
I own a classic UL BP now, and want the side zip.
Mainly want your opinion on the Cat cape rainfly, how well does it work as a poncho, does it make a good pack cover (covering just the pack) and is there any reason I to or not to get the larger model for the regular length hammock
I figure it would be nice to have the ability to use it for me or the pack or both, at night I use a pee bottle (gatoraid bottles work great for this) so I wont need to worry about rain at night
weight is a deciding factor here for the most part, I'm no gram weeny but I do care about weight, I read that the hyperlite stretches more than the UL backpacker causing the sleepers but to sag deeper into the hammock, I'm a side sleeper and try to sleep kinda on my side in a hammock so I figure this would be a problem with the hyperlite.
I choose the supershelter due to the lack of weight over an UQ, and I think it may pack smaller, I also can't get a deal on UQ's.
Please give my your opinion.
