This is my first time on this forum and I must say that your knowledge is incredible! I've been reading posts for the last 2 hours now and I keep getting surprised!
Now here's my deal: I'm planning a 4 months trip in Ecuador, which will include a lot of survival in the rainforest! After months of research, almost all my gear is complete except for one major part : the hammock!
I've been reading a lot about this (on your forum and other sources) and there seems to be some good choices out there.
I've finally got between the Hennessy Deep Jungle Asym Zip (http://hennessyhammock.com/catalog/s...ngle_asym_zip/) and the Clark Tropical 2 (http://www.junglehammock.com/models/tropical/index.php)
I was wondering if any of you could give me some of your thoughts about those hammocks, and which one you think would be better for the rainforest! Do you think the hennesy Radiant Heat Reflecting DoubleBubble Pad going to make me more protected against bites? I must say that one of my biggest concern is getting my back bitten while I'm sleeping! I also like quick and simple. I've heard good reviews on both, and they're about the same prize! That's what makes my choice a little hard!
Thank you very much!
