    Hi from North East Ohio

    My wife & I are about to turn 60 and would like to try hanging to relieve back soreness. Got into lightweight/ultralite backpacking and want to do some thru hikes. Saw some reference to you forum at Back Packing Light site. Great forum with lots of info, have been going through Shug's great videos too.

    Am trying to decide between WBBB and Bias weight weenie micro?

    Welcome to HF form Georgia! Decisions, decisions...both are good choices but different choices. The WBBB is enclosed with the built in netting. It can be unzipped and laid to the side when not in use and the dbl layer easily holds a pad. If money is tight like at my house, The BIAS dbl layer and a Buginator net system is less money and gives you the option of leaving the netting at home when not needed. Good luck with your hammocking adventures, with so many good systems to choose from it can be a little overwhelming at times.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Welcome to the forum from Indiana. The WBBB is a great choice! Extreme comfort and excellent craftsmanship so it will last for years and years.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
