    Looking for a hammock

    I want to get a Hennessy Hammock, but I really don't know which one to get. I'm about 5'10 - 5'11, and weigh 145. I want a 4 season one, but currently I've narrowed it down to the Explorer Deluxe. Any review, or what not would be much appreciated.

    I'm 5'11, 160lb and I have the Explorer UL, I prefer it over the Expedition for backpacking. It's the Goldilocks hammock for me - not too big and heavy, not too small and cramped. For car-camping, the Safari is a hammock-mansion.

    There is an Explorer Deluxe Asym for sale in the For Sale section. It would save you a little $ on shipping and waiting..Zip model too!

    Chris-

    Some people prefer the extra space of a larger hammock, and don't mind the extra weight and bulk in their packs. Going just by your size, the Expedition, Hyperlight, Deep Jungle (NOT XL), or Asym Backpacker would fit you. Your personal preferences and your budget are factors that dictate which model is best for you. If you can find a hammocker nearby who will let you just "try one on for size," that may be helpful.

    My friend dant8tro actually finds his HH Deep Jungle to be more comfortable than his Warbonnet Blackbird.

    I find my explorer and my UL backpacker just as comfortable.
    Although the explorer is much larger
