    I have the Eagles Nest Outfitters Double Nest and love it! I sleep like a baby!
    If I were to get a second hammock or replace mine, I’d seriously consider the http://www.junglehammock.com/store/p...&cat=12&page=1. It would work for you in the heat/cold and buggy conditions... Check them out!
    I hope you find what you are looking for and get into hanging!
    Have fun...

    Got both the HH exped asym(bottom entry) and the WBBB.

    The Hennessey has served me well for about three years and has been faultless, I can recommend switching to the Hex tarp otherwise you've got no working space under the stock tarp if it's lagging it down.

    I've just got my WBBB and the side entry makes it much more useful as a camp chair and the netting rolls back for the non buggy season. You'd need to purchase a tarp on top of this. The WBBB seem to give a bigger "bed" space than the HH and the webbing/cinch buckle is SO much easier to put up and adjust, not that the HH is hard.

    Imho the WBBB wins due to being more versatile.

    I have a HH Explorer bottom entry and in my opinion you won't like it... The bottom entry makes putting on and taking off your shoes more difficult and it also makes using under quilts more difficult. Also the Velcro used for the bottom can snag on the netting causing snags. My biggest recommendation with any hammock is to make sure you get a top entry. I think I've also come to the conclusion that a DIY setup is the best. I just finished up making my own whoopies, tree straps, and hammock and it was only about $20 and a couple hours of work! With a hammock like that you get the top entry ease of use and when bugs get bad in the spring summer you can add a bug net which goes over your under quilt allowing you to adjust it as well it will block mosquitos from the bottom. Anyways, this is just my opinion...

    i do like both but if you are going for warmer weather.. i would suggest a grand trunk hammock ...just the regular one its lighter and less bulk and still comfy, after you can just set up to your liking

    happy hanging
