    UL Backpacker v Expedition v Hyperlight?

    I'm seriously considering upgrading my hammock (Grand Trunk backpacking) to a Hennessy, largely so I can get the Cub for my son.

    I want to keep the weight down, so I'm leaning more towards the UL Backpacker rather than the Expedition.

    Besides weight, what are the main things I need to consider in differences between the three?

    I'm 5'8" and 180lbs.

    Any strong opinions?

    My strongest opinion would be moving away from the expedition sized hammocks (which i have) and to the larger explorer models. I find the expedition tighter space-wise than i like only being slightly taller and lighter than yourself.

    However, if you are firm on the expedition line, i would go with the UL for weight conscious and durability median and switch out the lines for dynaglide or amsteel whoopies.
