I think that I will just go with the ultralight and standard tarp. It seems like the standard tarp will be sufficient for me. I can see were a larger tarp would be desirable if I planned to spend a lot of time in camp. I just need something to keep the rain off me while I sleep at night. I fall into the fast and light user category. The main reason that I considered a hammock in the first place was small pack size, ease of finding a suitable site, and quick set-up time. That is, I want to spend as little time as possible finding a suitable camp site, setting up a shelter, and getting to bed (more time in camp = less time on the water fishing). Anyone rig up some rod holders on the ridgeline?
Have there been quality issues with the Hennessy hammocks? Everything that I have read indicates that it is a quality product, and they offer outstanding customer service. Is there any reason that a novice should avoid the Hennessy hammocks because of quality? I fully understand that a “power user” is going to want more from a hammock than any standard model can provide.
