Hi, I am a long time ground dweller with a sub 2lb tent set-up for backpacking. With that said I also have a garden hammock in my backyard that I could sleep for days in so I am thinking of taking the plunge. I am 160lb's soaking wet so I am considering the Blackbird single layer 1.1 as my future hammock.
My question is more concerning the suspension system. I often hike until just before dark so I would like a system that I would not have to spend time in dusk tying knots. I would also like a weight savings over the stock adjustable webbing suspension.
I have looked at both of these: Will either of these save me a noticeable amount of weight savings? If I could get a 20oz set-up with suspension I would be very happy -- then a 10oz tarp would put me in the same weight class I am now on the ground,.
as I would prefer to get all the suspension items from one place if possible.
lastly, if i were to upgrade the suspension to one of the lighter alternatives above, would the line/strap or adjustable webbing be a better starting point (or does it not matter at all when changing it out)
