    Yea I'm in the same boat as @Raw. I was into a Clark Camping Hammock I had a while back, but a Warbonnet is like having your own room almost :/ It seems to solve your problem

    I haven't used the Lawson but I did a BGT review of the Crazy Creek, which is similar. It felt cavernous when I laid in it but no more room for sitting up, and not as easy to use as a lounger.

    I got the Lawson.........

    First off, easiest set up I can imagine. It does require bringing your own rope to attach to the ends and tie to the tree.
    The quality seems good and I'm comparing to the Clark Jungle Hammock.
    In and out was easy. Very roomy inside, no clostrophobia anymore.
    Some handy pockets and loops inside but I wasn't paying much attention. The rain fly is easy on and has several attachment
    points and is adjustable. Breakdown is easy. The only drawback I can see is the 20 inches or so length of pack size. Not a
    problem on a motorcycle and probable not for some backpackers. I did not set it up on the ground but it looks stupid easy.
    I've yet to spend a night but I suspect this is the last hammock I'll need. I did not use it for sitting but I don't see that as
    important. The only thing I'd like to add is a hole in the floor so I can piss without getting out.

    I do have a question about ropes. I'd like to get some sort of non stretching ropes to use when hanging and some sort of
    ratchet adjuster for tension/length. Does anyone have recommendations or ideas?

    We have 1/8th inch amsteel- no stretch- supper strong and light 1/8th inch amsteel

    and in the next few days we will have Cinch Buckles For webbing based suspensions

    Or you could go with Whoopie Slings to get the hole job done easily.

    Congrats on the first hang in it though I would like to try one out someday.

    Definitely recommend using some kind of webbing on the trees, like tree huggers, if you go with rope or cord. Protecting the trees and all that...several threads on it here on HF.
