I used a Hennessey hammock expedition for three and a half months on a bike tour through central america. My buddies loved it, but I would have preferred to sleep on the ground. Since then I have not hammock camped. This may be due to the fact that I had the wrong sized hammock (there was no choice as we got them free for the trip from hannessey, see ridingthespine.com).
I am about to embark on a new adventure, an ultra light 10 day rafting trip down the Franklin river in Tasmania through old growth forest. I am beginning to think that a hammock may be the way to go on this trip, due to the abundance of trees along the river and the tight gorges we expect to encounter with minimal flat ground. We also expect to have some poor weather (rain and cold, possibly sleet).
I have been poking around a bit and am thinking I am going to make my own or get something like a GT skeeter beater, or a hennessey explorer. However I like the idea of a double floor for extra skeeter protection/insulation. I am mostly worried that the GT will be too short, and that I will be cold, as I am not about to spend upwards of $500 on the pre-made insulation systems.
In short looking for long 2x walled hammock (for pad insertion) with mosquito protection and fly for under $150.
