Ditto that post. After several years of using several excellent hammocks, my Claytor No Net(CNN) remains one of my absolute favorites. And in fact, it is my most often used winter hammock. But that favoritism is not quite fair! It is because it also works better with my Speer PeaPod than any other hammock I have.
In the same way, my original hammock- HH UL Explorer remains a favorite, but a big reason is because it's all I can use with my HH Super Shelter. And sometimes I just like to go back to my beginnings and use that HHSS. But, still, it is a quite comfy hammock anyway.

Perhaps I will return, or at least visit on occasion.
I also had a CJH, about the same time as I got my CNN. I got rid of mine only because I was feeling guilty about having so many hammocks I suppose. Plus I was mostly using my No Net, as I am mostly a cool to cold weather camper. I didn't need the net, and the CNN was lighter. Still, I have always regretted selling the tarp. I really liked that "diamond" tarp, a lot better than my HH diamond! Someday I think I will buy another.
