    Thanks for your replies so far. I have to say despite I think I like the sound of the WBBB more, there is a certain convinence with HH because I get everything in one package and shipping, especially I am intending to get some skins. HH shipping prices is ludicrous so getting everything in one hit seems logical, even though I like the sound of the WBBB better.

    Just me but;

    HH- First thing I would do is upgade the suspension and the second would be a 2QZQ mod of the zipper system. So then modifications right out of the box for me.

    WBBB- Pretty much good as is right out of the box.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    If for some reason you get the BB and do not like it (hard to imagine but it does happen once in awhile), you can sell it here on this forum for almost what you paid for it and usually in under a day. Do not know of any other "used" hammocks that sell that fast.

    Just a question regarding skins (from HH), are there actually different sizes or they are all XL #4 size?

    Insofar as I know, the only ones that Hennessy makes these days are #4, yes. However, if you're buying from someone other than Hennessy, your mileage may vary.

    They used to make 4 sizes, but switched to the one #4 size a couple of years ago and discontinued #1-#3.

    I you have access or facility with a sewing machine, you can sew a simple tube out of almost any fabric or netting and make one very inexpensively.
    Good luck.

    Thanks, just pulled the trigger on the WBBB DBL 1.1 with an Asym Diamond tarp for now. May get a bigger tarp later when Brandon or Brian from OES are not as busy trying to deal with the backorders. Thanks for all your help so far.

    That is the one I decided on also, I just bit the bullet and bought the WBBB DBL 1.1 and I can't wait to get it. I think you will be well pleased. I have laid in the 1.0 & 1.7 and they are comfortable.

    Get yourself, or build yourself, a full-length ridgeline for that tarp and it will pitch beautifully. Great tarp and very much underrated. Course, that hammock ain't no chopped liver either.
    Enjoy the hang!
