I got to spend last weekend up in the Adirondacks and had my first opportunity to sleep in a hammock. Overall I was pleased with the experience and I feel that with some more nights and adjustments it will only get better. I am 6'4" tall and 260 lbs so the XLC seemed like the best choice. It took very little time to set up after watching Brandon's videos. The second night I dropped the head end, as suggested, to make it more comfortable and indeed did sleep better. I don't have any experience with other hammocks but overall I am very pleased with the XLC and would recommend it.
