    Any reason not to buy the waterproof 'Travel' hammock?

    I was about to purchase a 'Frontline' but I see a 'Travel' hammock in the 'for sale' forum. So, that raises a couple of questions.

    1. The DD is already rather heavy and I see that the 'travel' hammock is almost 4 ounces heavier than the 'frontline'. Never having carried or camped with a hammock before I don't know if that is going to be a problem. Most of my camping is canoe tripping but occasional multi-day hikes.

    2. Is the waterproof fabric uncomfortable (condensation)? I don't expect to be using the hammock in 'bivy' mode so dont really need the waterproof feature.

    But... looks like I can save some money by buying the travel hammock off this forum as opposed to the frontline directly from DD. So, if you have any thoughts on these 2 issues - especially the condensation - please help me out here.

    I did see the recent review of the Travel hammock and the comments about the breathability - a very helpful review and comments. I guess I would just like to see a little more discussion about this before I make up my mind.
