    my dream hammock is a..........

    I am a 230 pound 5'8 muscular build guy who is starting a thru hike in april of this year on the AT going NOBO. I was wondering if all you hammock hangers could help my brother and I out. He is about 5'11 240 pounds. If you were our size, and trying to go as light as possible, with an easy set up system, with as much comfort as possible you would purchase:

    Hammock?

    Tarp?

    Sleeping Bag or quilt?


    I really like the web strap system with the caribiner for ease of set up, and I love what i was in the video of the snakeskins on Hennesy hammocks. Are these set ups something I could do with any brand?

    Hello and welcom, check out Warbonnet Black Bird by Warbonnetguy. He is a HF member so you can find his website on here. His 1.7 double should be nice, roomy with a flat lay. Im 6' and 215 and it's plenty big enough for me. You'll find lots of great info on this site,
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    You can do either of those with most any hammock, especially if you are willing to build your own.
