    NYC area

    I am interested in buying a hammock but it is driving me crazy trying to decide what exactly to get when I can't even try before I buy. REI has a couple ENO hammocks and a Hennessy but I wanted to try a bridge as well... any advice?

    Thanks

    If you're free fathers day weekend, come down to the NJ hang at Batona camp, there will be lots of hammocks to see!

    Yep, it's a hammock hoe-down in the Pine Barrens. Plenty of rigs to check out.

    There will be one everything, well, ok, a lot.
    Zilla's bridge hammock has no equal.

    Clarks, Dream Hammocks, Warbonnets, DIY tablecloths, ENO, Grand Trunks, BIAS, bridges and more.
    About 2 hours south if NYC. Plenty of good food.

    If you can make it, you will be able to demo plenty of hammocks.
    Stopping by for the afternoon is allowed if you can't swing staying overnight.
    Plenty of room.
    Have sherpas, will travel...

    And I'm bringing a Byer Moskito Hammock and an HH Expedition Asym Zip, along with a BIAS WW Micro DL and a Hiker Lite. And a coupla tablecloth hammocks.
