    HH Explorer Hyperlite?????

    When I ordered my Hyperlite today, I asked if they could make me a custom Explorer Ultralight with the Hyperlite material and suspension system. They said they have been considering it, but didn't know how long it would be before I would receive a prototype.

    James called me back in five minutes and said they are going to at least build some prototypes, but it would probably be a few months before I could get my hands on one.

    For those of you looking for a longer, lighter hammock that you don't have to make yourself, there may be one in our future!

    Now if they could just make that about 10' long with a removable zipper bug net, I'd just have to get me one.
    Seriously, that sounds like a nice hammock.

    Are the hyperlite models shorter than the other models? I thought they were the same thing with different fabric. Why would they be shorter? I wonder if they are concerned about fabric strength.

    These are things that I think about these days. Tent sleeping sure was less complicated...too bad it sucks!

    The Hyperlite is the same dimensions as the UL Backpacker. The Explorer is 10" longer than the ULB and the Hyperlight.
