    Question colors of hh racing models

    Anyone know if the hh adventure racing models are or ever were available in stealth colors (ie. green or coyote brown)? What are some of the differences between these and the ultralite asymn? I was going to get a new hyperlite for the weight savings over the ul, but $220.00 is alot to spend for 4 or 5 oz.
    I'm thinking of getting one of the racing hammocks instead. I only go on several trips a year up to 10 days at a time so it would prob hold up ok. What do you think.

    BTW this site is great. I've already learned so much from it in the several days I've been here.

    I think the colors have always been less than stealthy. I have a Hyperlight and it is a great hammock. The Adventure racer is not as wide, has no velcro at the bottom opening. This is not really a big deal cause your bodyweight will keep it shut. Hennessy is having a sale on the UL Backpacker now so you might want to consider that. I have one and there is little weight difference between it and the Hyperlight. My favorite hammock now is my Treklight double hammock. Really lets you stretch out wide and long.
    The Eno hammock is basically made just like it.www.treklightonline.com

    My HHELR is royal blue has 60 plus nights on it and is in great shape ... only wear is the tree hugger loops where the thin spectra has started wear.... much more reasonable than the hyper light...

    Pan,

    I'm 5'-11.5". Is the HHAR too short for me?
