    well, you can thank me for the zipper and double bottom on your hh if you want, they never had options like that before the bb was around.

    actually, the "smaller" model hh's "are" comparable in size to the BB's. notice their smaller models (up to 6') have a 100" RL, basically the same as the BB (rated to 6'6"+), and i'm almost positive that the hammock body length is very similar too if i recall. their larger models have a rl of 108" and up, so if you wanted to compare apples to apples you'd actually be comparing similar "sized" hammocks, not similarly "height-rated" hammocks.

    comparing the BB to your DJXL is a poor comparison because the DJXL is signifigantly longer (about a foot longer i believe), so when someone makes a comparison between the expedition and the BB, that is a "fair" comparison because they are basically the same size.

    Granted I'm not a mod...but can we not turn this into some kind of battle?

    HH and WB are both out there now. For any number of us newcomers...the history of both companies and the development of various features by either are kinda out of scope for our interests/needs.

    From my perspective...both appear to be darned good. I happened to go with HH for my choice, and have no reason to regret it. I suspect I'd have been equally as happy had I gone WB as well.

    There are advantages and/or disadvantages to either.

    Choose the specific attributes that are most important to you and use those to decide which hammock is likely to be best for you.

    I don't see a battle anywhere, just a voicing of opinions. Nothing to fret about. It's all about hangin'!! When it comes down to it, as long as you are off the ground, life is good
