Other hammocks lay differently than HHs...if you're still interested, don't give up on hammocks just b/c you don't like that one model.
But yeah - you need to be prepared if you're gonna use a hammock in the high Sierras. Probably not the best option if you're going solo, but if you have a go-to-ground option (like a hiking buddy with a tent) it can work. Unexpected storms up there can be worse than in other places. Then there's the above tree-line areas, but a pad and tarp as part of the hammock system can take care of that.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
