I have to say that both are darned fine hammocks but I just like my WBBB better. It's softer, has a more comfortable lay, and I really like that shelf and foot box design. Tarps you can always monkey with to fit whatever hammock you buy.
I don't think you'd be disappointed with either make. Both have their strengths. Enjoy!
+1 for me on this.
I started with a HH Desert Rat with a bottom entrance. I could never get comfortable or sleep on my right side. That tan bug net made me feel claustrophobic.
If I was to do a HH again, I'd get one with side zippers and a black bug net. However, I bought a WBBB 1.7 double a year ago and absolutely love it and can sleep on both sides. I just bought a WBBB 1.1 single to save a pound while backpacking.
My money in on the WB. Good luck with your decision.
