I am a complete hammock noob and I think I am intending to get the WBBB DBL 1.1 soon based on all the recommendations, videos and threads I have seen.
Originally I was looking at the WB Superfly but then I discovered a lot of you use OES tarps. I looked at the MacCats and am tempted by the simplicity but also want to compare apples with apples here. The 11'x10' 'winter tarp' by OES is similar in dimensions as the Superfly except the doors does not overlap or protrude out and can be strung up as a rectangle. There is also the option to add panel pulls to match the Superfly and even ridgeline loops for more versatility.
The OES seems to have a lot of colour options whereas the Superfly is 'olive brown' which I am wondering if that is what Brandon describe as an olive grey on the webpage. For the OES colours, would a black be too hot or it actually provides better shade? Otherwise I will most likely go the grey as I am quite used to that as a tent fly colour.
Thoughts for and against each option and ultimately what is a better purchase?
Thanks in advanced
