Fd, et al,
Yup these babies are sweet.... but then I'm biased.
The 8x8 model will easily handle a hammocker and two ground sleepers... great for you and the male dino if he wants to stay on the ground and be right with you....Actually the solo models will also accomodate a ground sleeper as well as the hammocker.... just a little tighter.... Scroll down on this page of Jeff's for proto pictures...http://www.tothewoods.net/HikingPicturesMtRogers.html
Expect weights to run between 1.5 and 1.9 lbs depending on model.... We hope to have the initial production run at Trail Days...
Your hammock plight, as discussed last year at TD, was a major consideration by us as we designed the new JRB Hammock this winter... You will really like it...sorry no details yet... Expect it to be featured at Trail days also....
PS.... Specifically they worked great...no wind at all.... 22*, wind gusts to 55 mph ( we were probable sheltered to about 15-20 mph at the near ground level.) Still enough wind that Doctari had to relocate the second night to get better protection/orientation for his NEO tarp set up...He was set up 10 feet from me with the same tree orientation (west to east in the winter...eeeke)...I slept bare handed, bare footed, 3oz silk top and 3oz silk bottoms and a single layer 100 wgt fleece balaclava in a JRB Four season set...warm and toasty.
