Long time backpacker with a lot of experience, but ALL of it on the ground. The constant glowing reports of sleeping comfort have me looking to the trees - which there are no shortage of here in the Pacific Northwest.
I'm trying to decide about a first hammock. Big guy - 6'3" and around 270. Relatively lightweight kit now (12-17 pounds usually).
Looking for suggestions for a good first experience. The HH Exp. Deluxe seems to be a decent option, but I'd like to go under 3lbs. if possible. My initial concerns are strength (I'd like a 300-400 rating at least) and rain (we get soaked up here).
Any advice is appreciated. It's kind of fun to explore an aspect of backpacking that I know very little about! I look forward to learning more!
