    I have.

    My first hammock was a TrekLight. My buddy got a deal where he got two Henessey hammocks for the price of one. So I ended up using one of his since it had a bug net for a thru hike of the Long Trail.

    Nothing wrong with trying out other gear if you have the chance.

    After that I was totally sold and got a WBBB.

    Like the Marines I'm Semper Fi.

    I make it a habit to neither lend or borrow my personal gear unless absolutley necessary. I would feel awful if gear I borrowed got damaged in my care so I wouldn't want someone else to feel that way if my gear got damaged in their care. Sometimes I do buy some gear specifically as loaners.

    Running Feather has a story about that from the Spring Hot Springs hang! I was involved, but he tells it so much better!

    I'm in a very open, polyamorous relationship with my Warbonnet Blackbird and my Speer IIIa.

    Oh, and to answer your question, no. I have never slept in another person's hammock. I still use my first love, a DIY double layer 1.1 tan Wally world ripstop 12'. I've re-whipped it a few times, but she's still the same lovely lay she's always been.

    I like to sleep around and never send out a hammock that hasn't been laid in.
