My wife has been hounding me to go on a hiking trip for quite some time. I told her about a local hang coming up in April and she said she wanted in. I've been using an ENO DN w/ whoopee slings, ENO bug net and a WL tarp.
I had been interested in trying out another set up and I stumbled upon the Claytor Jungle Hammock. I've read so many great reviews I felt I had to get it. I pulled the trigger and purchased the hammock two nights ago and now I'm waiting on the rig to get here.
I've spent considerable hours on HF researching other, lighter rigs and now I'm concerned I made a mistake. I go hiking a lot and a lot of our trips are 30+ miles. I'm a gram weenie and I like to pack as light and compact as possible. I know I could lose the extra 3+ pounds around my midsection to lighten the load to make up for the weight of the hammock, but I'm just not that motivated to yet
I just wonder if I made a bad decision. I'm 5'7 @ 230#. I'm kind of built like Spongebob. Is this the hammock I've been looking for, or is there something that will better suit my needs? I plan on giving the ENO to my wife for car camping and lounging in the yard.
Thanks for your help!
