    None. Get two hammocks. Might be nice for a nap but for sleeping overnight...it does not work. Many have tried including me

    BUT using a spreader bar on the head end will help with hanging two hammocks from only two trees.

    2 Dutchware Chameleon hammocks with double dutch bug net and spreader pole for the win.

    If you are looking for something just to canoodle in on a sunny afternoon - Look at a Dutchware Gear Netless in Hexon 2.4 - Supper strong with a 400lbs rated capacity. Mine has held my wife, 2 healthy sons and myself without a problem. With just my wife and myself, we can maintain comfort and even nap for as long as an hour, maybe even an hour and a half.

    If you are looking for something that would be comfortable for an overnight- 2 separate hammocks would be your best option. Dutch has Netless hammocks on sale right now! Get 2, and maybe a few extra as gifts before the sale goes away.

    Good Luck

    Clark Vertex or Double V. I have them both, they're awesome. Get the underquilts from Locolibre, not Clark.
    Dead simple to use, and comfortable and cosy.

    The clark vertex is a great 2 person hammock. The only downside is when you decide to head out for a solo trip. With two seperate hammocks you can just take 1. The Chameleon system is modular so you can attach a solo net on 1 hammock or attach the double dutch net when hanging 2 hammocks side by side with a spreader pole. I'm a big fan of modular systems. Saves money in the long run, IMHO.

    *and there may just be a revolutionary rainfly in the works designed specifically for the Chameleon setup. ;-)

    I found the Clark to be very small and tight and I’m only 5’11 and 160lbs
    Get lost in the woods and find yourself again. A vacation,to me, is working with your hands and surviving because of the fruits of your labor. In the business world I teach;in the natural world I learn.
