    Rapt, that Cuben tarp is sweet! But not sure I can swing $250 for something like it right now. I was basing my weight estimate more on something from Campmor in the 10x12 size, like a basic sylnylon job, which seem to come in at about 20 oz.

    Hey Seracer,
    I just got back from a trip to the North Cascades and Olympics. I did not hammock above a few thousand feet, I'm glad to hear it can be done, sometimes! I did have multiple sweet nights along the Hoh river trail, however! The problem there was the opposite, an abundance of trees but mostly gigantic, to big to hang from. But even setting up camp in a brand new place in the dark, we still managed to find enough trees for the two hammockers, leaving our ground dwelling buddies on the gravel bar. And once we found those right size/distance trees, I was out like a light until the noise of my son getting the food down out of the trees, about 0730, woke me. I didn't even get up to take a leak, I was just out.

    I used a supershelter to keep warm into the 40s.

    Rapt, I did see that Cuben is sold for do-it-yourselfers. That might be an option...

    BB58, yep, I was at nearly 6000 feet in mid 30F weather with blowing sleet/rain and fog. I slept comfortable (except for my feet). Trees were not the monsters you saw in the Hoh, but like you, I figure I can find something most anywhere. I even wonder if you could pack some climbing chocks and use rock cracks in more alpine conditions? Not sure I am that confident yet...

    I'm happy to hear that many of you are finding your Trek Light Hammocks to be both well made and in many cases more comfortable than the other hammocks available in the market. Quality, comfort and overall weight of our products are the three things that we have to balance most as a gear manufacturer and we always welcome any feedback you might have to make our brand meet your needs.

    If there's anything you'd like to see us add or modify with our current design, feel free to either post your suggestions in the forum or contact me directly at any time.

    Here's an offer for you all...I'll send the first person to PM me with their mailing address a free Trek Light double hammock and our carabiner/rope kit. All I ask is that you post a review with your thoughts once you've had a chance to try it out...

    Don't you already have an ENO? They've always looked like the same design to me. If you do have one, I'd like to see a first-hand comparison between the two.

    ...that is, unless Seth of TrekLightGear would like to illuminate us on any differences.

    That's kind of my intent. I really like my ENO SingleNest and would like to see how similar the TrekLightGear hammock are to the ENO. Besides, if I like my ENO SingleNest; I bet I love a TLG Double!
