    Northern Lower Michigan Newbie

    Loved camping all my life. Bonfires, hikes, tents, music, friends! Easing my way into hammock camping and got my first taste of it recently. Open to suggestions for hammock camping systems. Right now considering WBBB and Underground Quilts. Hope to hang with some of you. Recent outings include Winter hang at Ludington, and Noah's Ark Hang at Manistee River Trail.

    Welcome Dan from Marshall. WBBB are highly regarded around here, there's been a lot of buzz about the Dream Hammock Darien and Danger Birds lately too. Ya can't go wrong with one of Pauls quilts or tarps, quality gear.
    Good luck,

    Welcome from Denver.

    Hammocks are like packs, shoes or other gear. While there are best contenders, what hits the sweet spot for one may not for another. If possible, visit another group hang and try out multiple options to see what might be best for you.

    Having said that, I have a Warbonnet Blackbird and a Ridgerunner and really like both. My next will probably be a dangerbird.

    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.
