I've been researching hammock's and I'm quite impressed and ready to give it a go. Here's my problem though which one do I need? Even after researching and reading reviews here I'm still not sure. Having purchased an item in the past that didn't quite live up to standards, and having to purchase another model better suited to the particular task, I'd rather avoid that mistake here.
I'm posting in this forum because I'm drawn to the HH line, but don't know enough about hammocks to make a decision on which one. That being said if there's another brand I should consider I'm open.
What I'll be using it for is primarily bike packing in Colorado and Utah. I'd also like to be able to use it in the winter, mostly in Colorado, for snowshoeing. Weight is one consideration, but how much do I give up to save a few ounces, or do I give up anything at all? Since I'd like to only purchase one which one would be best year round? Camping in Utah will more than likely require some ingenuity in setting up and more than likely be on the ground. I don't know if that makes a difference model to model or not.
So to summarize;
Best year round
Can be set up on the ground if necessary
I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs.
Having no experience with hammocks; is there anything else I should be considering for the kind of use described above?
Thanks in advance for your help..............TJ
