Okay thanks for makeing this forum I have spent several days reading before I make a post. So here it goes.
1. I want to buy a hammock
2. I like to sleep on my side most of the time in fetal (no not sucking my thumb eighter )
3. I am 6.4 tall
4. I am 270 pounds
5. I a 4 season backpacker/Hunter
6. I backpack/Hunt most of the time in the midwest
7. I do make several atemps at backpacking out west.
8. I dont want one that includes any sticks to keep bug net up or to keep spread out pr anything eles for that matter unless it is used to keep tarp up. that is just added weight
I have looked at the HH several times before I found the forum and looked at the Clark a bunch as well. It seems everyone on this site likes HH over other brands but would like to hear from everyone and there take on different brands Pro's and Con's. I like to pack lite so the use of extra padding or a extra bag to keep warm is not really what im am looking for to pack allot of. I dont want to build my own and am not interested in makeing mod's to any hammock I buy other than were to hang from and how I hang it that is a given. As my name applies I like to cavedive allot and most of it is done in florida or mexico My cavediving gear is stowed in a trailer all of the time when im not diving and the trailer is 7ft tall and my truck is about that high as well at the back of topper so I can hang from there if needed.
So if you can give me your pro's and con's I would be ready to read about what in your op make's the one you have better than the others so that I might use this info to make a solid purchase and not have to buy four or five hammocks to figure out which one I like.
I am not intrested in starting any fights or being belittled over this article I am just looking to get started hanging and doing it right and spending my hard earned money wisely.
Thanks for all of those who reply
and the time that It took you to write what ever you write
and again thanks for the forum keep up the good work
and I will return often even when I make the leap from ground to hanging
Rhino-lfl I have been reading you post to the forum and was wondering if you have been any happer with you Clark?
