I'm 5'11" 210 lbs and am looking into my first hammock for mostly summer (possibly some spring and fall) camping and backpacking. I really like the HH hammocks and am looking at the EXPLORER ULTRALITES specifically.
Is the HH website the best place to buy from? I see they are giving free snakeskins right now.
Are the HH weight limits hard and fast? I see a lot of them list a 200lb weight limit. Should I avoid those even though I am only 10lbs over?
Should I go with bottom entry or side zip? I might use a pad if the nights get cool. Is there a concern with bugs and the bottom entry?
I like the tree hugger, caribiner, rings suspension system outlined in this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iJTjful66M
Will I need to modify the HH at all to use this system?
Thanks for the help!
