    You should see me at the mailbox waiting for the carrier. He even laughs at me now and always asks what I got this time. He got a good holiday tip this year.

    Only have experience with the ENO, but I know that either will work. I would definatly that a pad of some sort. On my aborted Thru in this year i carried a GG 1/4 wide thinlight and used it a good deal on my aborted thru, and subsquent long term sections. One thing you might want to look into making a simple hammock sock. When I was in NC the clouds rolled right through the gaps and sometimes even over the higher peaks. I really wished I had a sock, or even a JRB weather shield to protect me from the rolling mositure, otherwise your hammock choices are golden. And yea, I have slept on jsut that 1/4 pad in shelters, and it was a restless night sleep.

    However, the Hennessy has to go -- after much trying the underneath-entrance thing is still not comfortable for me. I'd also prefer something where I can leave the bug netting off in non-buggy weather.

    The only real outfitter near me has almost no hammocks, and it is unlikely.I will be able to get to a Ruck or any other gathering. I will get a shakedown in February, but I'm going to have only a few weeks after that before I actually hit the trail. Hence, I'm pretty much obligated to pick out my gear online and go with it.

    Iíve basically got my choices narrowed down to two:

    A) ENO singlenest with A JRB nest/no sniveler combo
    B) Speer with Speer underquilt and top blanket


    Any thoughts from people who have experience are appreciated. Iíd especially like to know how good either of these setups is for spring AT weather. I would like, as much as possible to avoid sleeping fully-dressed. If Iím wearing naught but my skivvies, is a quilt system going to keep me warm?

    And while Iím here -- What's the deal with sleeping pads? If the underquilt is warm enough, why would I want/need a pad? Iíve never used one in my HH.
    i would go with the speer neo
    the matrix has you

    Is the Warbonnet Harlot the official name? It does have a ring to it.
