If any of you have followed my trip report threads, you know that I recently ordered a BB/Mambajamba/Yeti (my first hammocking gear) and took it on a river trip with the family. My brother loved it, and it looks like we'll be hiking some at the end of June. I'm thinking about getting him a hammock for the trip. He doesn't do nearly as much hiking as me, so it's possible that this will end up being a "backup" in my gear closet (or whatever you want to call it).
I love my BB, but I get the impression that I can probably do better on the price. Don't get me wrong... I love the setup I have, but buying all that was not cheap, and I'm not sure a "backup" set of gear warrants that kind of expenditure again. Also, I figure there may be some features of other hammocks that I haven't gotten to experience.
At any rate, I've been watching the for sale forum for someone to sell a HH or something like that. If nothing presents itself, I'll probably order another BB, although I'll second guess myself about ordering the exact same thing (DL 1.1 w/ straps).
Any advice on a "backup" or "second experience" is greatly appreciated.
