I'm planning to get the HH Ultralite Backpacker Asym Zip or HH Expedition Asym Zip. Whichever I get, I think I'll be getting the 70d hex fly.
Is it worth it to get the heavier Expedition that can hold up to 250lbs. instead of the lighter Ultralite Backpacker that can only hold 200 lbs.? I'm around 5'11" and weigh around 165 lbs, and am considering the possibility of keeping my roughly 40 lbs. pack and boots in my hammock with me at night in order to keep critters from bothering them. I don't know how else to protect them during the night, though I realize that I could put my food up a tree, but I would like to avoid doing that, except for bear and moose areas.
What's your feeling about getting the heavier hammock in order to keep my boots and pack (and maybe food) in the hammock with me?
