I met a couple guys (Loki and MacEntyre) at Uwharrie National Forest and decided I MUST have a hammock. I've been looking for a while but in a vacuum I can't decide what is best for me.
I'm hoping to find some guidance and maybe some other ultralight cyclists (bikepackers) who are able to pack hammocks instead of bivvys or tents.
At present, I'm considering the ENO doublenest - mostly because I have an REI gift card that will cover it. What I want to be able to do is replace my OR Highland Bivvy, sleeping bag, and pad with hammock, tarp and quilts. I don't think I can do it without a weight/volume penalty but I'd like to see if I can. I expect you folks are the ones who can help me.
I live in Warrenton, VA so I'd be stoked to meet up if there is a group in this area getting together. Any thoughts about the doublenest or a good alternative would be appreciated. I'm not a small dude, so I can't fool around with kid sized hammocks.
