I flipped once in an HH and I'm on a mission to not ever experience that one again. BBs would be worlds easier to get out of, but still.
I agree with you about being a dbl layer convert- I have been since I got my Claytor, and became even more so with my BMBH, the best hammock ( also dbl layer) to use a pad with, IMO. The only inconvenience I'm referring to is re: leg pad. To me, it is more convenient to just have the pad in the hammock with you ( but NOT down in the pad sleeve), in case you want to reposition it when you also change positions. But it can be a little more inconvenient to do that if it is down in the sleeve. And if I'm going to have the pad in the hammock in contact with my legs anyway, why have the weight of the double layer? Unless there is another benefit like less sag and flatter position?
( But I'm counting on you with your
addiction ( unlike me
) to tell me if double 1.1 or single 1.7 is as comfy as double 1.7, at least as far as you can tell.)
But if I want to have the pad under my torso, no doubt, a double layer is the only way to go ( ESPECIALLY with the BMBH). Though an SPE is still pretty darn good, very competitive with the double layer and maybe a better way to handle the sides.
