You have probably had this from every newbie but here in South Africa we are very limited to hammock choices! We can get BCB Fox jungle sleep system which is quite expensive, then we get the ticket to the moon hammock. The hammock and the Mozi net are well priced but the trap is very expensive. My other option is to import from the UK. I first looked at the DD Frontline with a 3x3 meter tarp but with more research I have seen that a lot of people like the Warbonnet hammocks for there comfort and design! I also saw that many people buy the Hennessey Hammocks and then end up going to the Warbonnet Blackbird or Ridgerunner depending on which type of hammock you like. I am really leaning towards the WBRR. I like the fact that you get a more flat sleep in the bridge design. With all the effort it is going to take to get a good hammock I don't want to make a mistake in getting the wrong one!
I really need your guys help that have been to many hangs and have used many different types and models of hammocks!
I haven't even really spent a night in a hammock, I did sleep in a hammock with a steel frame for a night but haven't hang free in the open!
Also I see that the WBRR doesn't come with a trap which is a good tarp to get that wont cost me an arm and a leg? Are the DD tarps good?
I thought that hammocking would be cheaper option to using a tent, I was mistaken. A decent hammock is the price of my North Face 4 season two man tent!
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
