    I bought one of these and it is not a bad hammock. It could use some more sag in the fabric off the centerline though. I found it hard to find a spot to lay flat.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder....the Jungle Hammock costs twice as much as the Mosqiuto....Worse, the JH weighs a lot more...

    Camo is cool, but if stealth is important, it is best to actually be out of site of the trail anyway...

    At 5-11 I don't have any problem laying slightly asym and almost flat in the mosquito model...It is not as roomy as a HH or the larger JH

    Remember, I may be biased, since JRB carries the Mosquito.

    My wife who is 5'2" originally bought the Expedition model but after trying my JH she returned it and ordered a JH. We both like the extra space in the JH. At 5'2" she'll have enough room to store everything she brings right at the foot of the hammock with room to spare. We found both hammocks to be very comfortable but the extra space was the deciding factor. (I'm a bit claustrophobic too) Keep in mind we're not doing extended trail hikes where weight is very critical. We mainly do overnighters and weekenders. Space and comfort rule....at least for now.

    I keep looking at one of the jungle models. I look at the weight and think, "That's a little to heavy." (3 lbs with hammock and stock fly) and then I see the way that it sets up on the ground and I have second thoughts about the weight.

    It's always nice to find a piece of gear that can fulfill more than one purpose and we all know the Achilles heal of hammock camping is being somewhere where you can't hang your hammock. Then you must go to the ground and I think that the TC hammock does that better than any other hammock out there. I know that you can use a HH as a tent, and although I have never tried using my HH as a tent, it would seem that the innovative womb-like entry of a HH would become very awkward when trying to use it on the ground.

    The TC hammock also has the double layer thing going on and eliminating the struggle with keeping a pad situated inside the hammock also makes me a little less worried about the weight.

    I wonder if you can buy the hammock without the fly?

    Neo,

    Have you ever weighed the stock TC fly against the Gear Guide tarp you use with yours? I am thinking that one way to reduce the overall weight is to change to a lighter fly, perhaps silnylon.

    You can buy the smaller models without the fly but not the Jungle model. I asked Claytor myself.

    headchange, the Crazy Creek sets up pretty nicely on the ground, and also has a pad pocket. I don't really like the pad pocket unless I'm using the DAM, but it's there.

    But then, it's $200 and 54 oz. It's a BGT test...
