    Any HH or WBBB owners in Denver?

    Hey all!

    I'm trying to decide between a HH and WBBB for my first hammock. The extra room and double bottom of a WBBB are certainly appealing, but the HH is nice b/c its an all in one solution (it comes with a tarp and can be bought at REI). I figure either way I go, I'll end up customizing things like the tarp and suspension systems later on down the road, so the biggest factors for me are comfort, weight, and cost.

    I know in the end comfort will likely be the biggest decision driver for me, so I'll ask: are there any HH or WBBB owners in the Denver area that might be willing to demo their hammocks one evening?

    Any sage advice on one vs the other?

    I know a guy with a few of those hammocks.
    Shoot me a PM and I can easily hook you up. But, hurry! I'm off for my first Winter Hike of the year next week.

    as a general rule hammock hangers love to do show and tell. I am sure that once the Colorado folks see your post. They will be chiming in.

    Poppabear, are you making the Jersey hang in late Jan? I'll expect some show-and-tell love for this newbie!
