    [QUOTE=gmcttr;858902]I'm thinking a cot and a bug net would be lighter and provide exactly the same lay.

    Old and in the way

    For us baby boomers that refuse to acknowledge we can't do everything we used to do in our 20's, I really want to do a lot of hammock camping, but can't afford to test all the different hammocks...

    Sorry for the confusion. I have put the spaceframe hammock on the back burner for now. This is a 'normal' hammock that has added support near the midpoint by adding guylines further up the trees. I...

    Since Lawson seems to be the only hammock that can also act as a bivy, I am thinking that the Chrysalis and the BMBH have to have some really trick features to surpass this added value. Looking...

    Thanks for all the input
