    I would like to see a Hammock hanging inside a tent,
    this would be the end all to the argument.

    The argument over which is lighter is irrelevant.

    We are trying to compare apples to donuts.

    Most hammock hangers choose hammocks because they offer a more comfortable nights sleep than sleeping on the ground. Of course the cool factor does not hurt.

    Many tenters choose tents because they tried hammocks and either could not get the hang of it (no pun intended) or felt claustrophobic in a hammock ( although I have been in some ultra light tents that were just as confining as most hammocks).

    Both tents and hammocks have their pros and cons. Which is better depends on your camping style and where and when you camp.

    So the only real concern is that you use the system that works for you and lets you get out into the woods and have a good time.

    Me, I think I will stick with hammocks.

    My only questions is to folks who say they are claustrophobic and feel trapped inside a hammock...

    whats happens when you close your eyes and you are trapped in side your head ?

    We have been maxing out our tent space, so We decided to bring an 8x10 silnylon tarp to help with camp and stowage space. . Then I thought "If I am going to be needing to bring the tarp ANYWAY, I might as well experiment with setting up a hammock with it as well.". So currently I am fashioning a diy hammock and bug net and wil make do with sleeping pads and camp padding. I hope to have it all together next week..

    Since we already have most of what we would need the addition of this extra sleeping space should come in at a little over a pound. If I decided to use a hammock for solo purposes likely it would be a wash or even a bit heavier than my single wall - but if I enjoy it, it might be worth it...

    Usually if you looking to go crazy and go ultra light then a ground camper can go lighter the a hanger.
