This will be my first hammock and I need it before July 8th.
I do mostly hiking so weight is an issue. Flies are always an issue in Florida. So I have gotten it down to these three.
Expedition Asym Zip $150
Warbonnet Blackbird 1.1 DL (no tarp) $175
Mosquito Jungle $150
I am 5'9 185lbs.
Price is also a little of an issue. I could stretch for the $175 for the BB but I will have to make due with a temporary Walmart tarp if I go that route.
I don't mind knots and a little extra work if I can always upgrade later. I do like buying new things. So I am sure I will try all the suspensions over the next while.
What are the benefits, issues with these? I think I understand that you have the foot shelf and have a storage shelf on the blackbird. Other than that I really don't know.
Thanks for the help!
