After taking a friend camping this past weekend and setting her up in my HH Hyperlite I have made a believer out of her (big surprise right?). She has now set aside $200 to get outfitted. She has a SB she can use for now and since bug seasons about over we're gonna hold off on the bugnet. That means I have $200 to find her a hammock, tarp and UQ (she doesn't want pads).
Here's what I came up with real quick last night. I'm open to input for better options.
Hammock: Tablecloth hammock, suspension provided me. $12-20
Tarp: WL Tadpole, cordage provided by me. $85
UQ: AHE Jarbridge, foot pad provided by me. $100
I plan to have her try my GTUL and see if she likes the smaller hammock. But that still keeps the hammock price the same. She doesn't wanna go too cheap on the tarp so no poly tarps or Guide Gear tarps (I've heard there tend to be issues with those).
