I spent probibly 20 nights in my HH and around 20 in my Speer. I parted way with my hh. Mainly b/c I hate having gear laying around that I do not see me getting any use out of, but that is a different thread.
I like the way the hh laid. I think it is hard to beat for quick and easy bug protection. I really like the top loader Speer. That is what sold me on it. I can jump in, move around, sit as a chair, lay with my feet propped up on one side, and I can prop up my head on the side.
In the end I like the Speer style with the hh roll whipping. I think that gives me the best of both worlds. I can pitch tighter and lay flatter without the shoulder squeeze using the roll whipping.
I have pics of what I use in my gallery.
I think that you could rig up an external pad with a speer style. It would be interesting to try at the very least. As long as I have an UQ, the 22" walmart pad is wide enough for me. I just throw it in with me.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
