I wasn't expecting it to be a cold as it was and I just consider it part of getting a good workout while on vacation! I really don't mind the extra weight but I'm definently in for a lighter option for sure. I was thinking of a hammock with a higher weight capacity so we can both sleep in it. I'm 157 and she's 65 lbs. That's too close to the rating of my Snipe for my comfort so I'm thinking a lite owl may be on order!
