I would recommend the Explorer. Just keep in mind the UL has a lower weight limit. As to the fly, add the small surcharge and get the HHex fly. The Hex provides much better coverage, and space under to store gear, have a rest, etc.

Thanks to everyone for all the follow-up and input.
I haven't been tracking this thread/forum much lately, but I'm sure I'll be checking in with some questions soon.
Just an update: I ordered the HH Explorer Ultralight Asym Zip today, and I upgraded to the 30d Silnylon Hex Tarp. Looking forward to trying it out when the weather warms up.
I almost went for the $99 4-Season System that's currently on sale, but I decided to wait and do some more research. I'm thinking about the pros/cons of this system versus something like an UQ system at JRB.
