    What's your favorite hammock?

    This question came to me when I was thinking about my limited experience with hammocks. So, I was wondering what all you experienced hangers out there stand next to when it comes to hammocks. (this has probably been asked before, but oh well)

    Please share

    My HH clone is my favorite, by far.

    Don't tell my other hammocks. They may get jealous.

    If I had an HH clone like yours, it'd be my favorite, too. That hammock kicks a$$, a super nice piece of gear. For now, my fave is my olive and khaki ENO DoubleNest.

    My HH ULBA is my favorite, but I think I'm gonna get the bridge hammered out and that will make my HH a guest hammock.

    My favorite is my homemade Speer type. If it ever starts to wear out, make another!

    I like my Claytor Jungle Hammock, although it's pretty heavy compared to others. I tend to hike at the rate some glaciers move, so it doesn't bother me too much.

    I only have one hammock...a Speer from a kit that my girlfriend sewed. I'm using ring buckles which makes it a cinch to hang...no pun intended :^). Easy to sit in, easy to grab things from outside because it's a top loader, easy to take the bug net off when its not needed...and, comfortable as well. My back feels great after a night in my hammock...better than my Tempurpedic clone mattress.

    My Claytor jungle hammock is my favorite, but when I really need to cut weight, I carry the Claytor expedition.
