    What is the best Hammock setup and why?

    I'm sure this question has been asked time and time again but I want to really get into the details here.

    Best all around hammock
    Best lightweight hammock for long distance backpacking
    Best hammock while on a tight budget
    Best hammock for the elements (rain,wind,bugs)
    Best hammock manufactor
    Most comfortable hammock
    Best suspension
    Best way to insulate your hammock
    Best way to keep your gear close by (cargo net hammock)
    Best Tarp

    I would like for all these to be based on quality and not budget! What is the best if money is NO OPTION!
    (except for the best hammock on a tight budget of course) ;-)

    And anymore you guys can think of and WHY you believe them to be the best.

    Also, include any small accessories, tips, setup tricks as well that help make life in the outdoors a little easier.

    I do not have much hanging experience so I do not have enough experience I do not think to answer these questions.

    The best hammock I have been in is a CJH nx-200. It was amazing. But I would like to know what's better out there.

    Even if it meant pieceing together different hammocks to get the best setup... What would that be? How would you go about it?

    I hope this topic will spark some good questions and ideas...

    Happy hanging!

    Best is such a personal term... I couldn't be happier with my setup, but you might not like it for you..
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    I agree... By best I simply mean best according to you... I realize there will be many different best here but I hope to maybe find some commonality among them...

    And if not it will just be fun to here everyone's options... ;0)

    The Best is very subjective. Depends on height, weight, sleeping position, intended use and weather conditions, seasons, and so on, and such as, ummm and stuff.

    Find what works for you and go with it.

    Or are you talking quality? if that is the case, you can't go wrong with most of the cottage vendors that participate on this site.

    Perhaps you have noticed many of us have hammock collections rather than just one? LOL There is not an easy path to the answers you seek, grasshopper! Enjoy the journey.

    No no I completely understand that... That's what I am saying by I want to get into the details... Clearly you have different setups for different scenarios... If u have a certain setup for a certain reason what is the reason and setup you chose? That would be your best... What is your suspension of choice for a particular reason? That would be your best...

    You can label it anyway you wish so there is no incorrect answer here...
