    Secondly, I haven't used a pad in years but I wouldn't trade my double layer BBXLC for a single layer. I'm not large, so I don't need two layers to handle weight. I have two layers to provide the combination of a nice feel (of cloth that isn't too heavy) and the firmness that the two layers provide. This is NOT a backpacking hammock.
    I recently put a thin pad between the Wooki and a single layer Blackbird. That worked as well as with my double layer BB. So it could be an option to save a bit of weight while still keeping this advantage of the DL.

    Another vote for an SLD Trail Lair here. I just upgraded from a Hennessy Deluxe Explorer Classic to an 11' Trail Lair and couldn't be happier. Nothing against my Hennessy, I got it used on Ebay for a song and it has served me well, but it will now be my loaner hammock while I reserve the Trail Lair for myself. I'm sure that Dutch, Dream Hammocks, Warbonnet, etc are equally nice.

    You choice is an excellent one and the Trail Lair is another excellent hammock as are many others. The double layer is very nice if you are going to use a pad to keep it in place but you will soon graduate to a quilt as the pads aren't all that comfortable with the sliding around, condensation, etc.
