    MM, you will not regret buying a Yeti. I have the early synthetic version and I love it. Just PM or email Brandon at Warbonnet, he doesn't have them listed on his site yet, since he likely can't keep up with hammock orders.

    Brandon introduced the non-prototype version of the 3-Season Yeti at Trail Days. They should be available for order directly from him now if you email him.

    I have a prototype Yeti (down)....works GREAT, very small and light.

    Do what I do...

    1) just stop thinking about it and buy it.
    2) Then say "OK, that's IT....no new gear for a while."
    Repeat the above 2 steps endlessly.

    Seriously, the Yeti works VERY well. While lying on it, you can immediately tell the difference.

    Quick easy setup. Well made. Not sure what temps it will go down to (along with a pad and a sleeping bag/quilt), but should be good until it gets pretty cool out...........
