    My first hammock was an Explorer Deluxe. It's well made and comfortable. At 275# I think you'll appreciate how secure you'll feel in the fabric its made from.

    Just picked one up from a member here. Haven't really got it out yet but I know it'll have more room than my Expedition and so I'm looking forward to it!

    I think you're going to be VERY pleased with your purchase. I've had the HH Explorer Deluxe (bottom entry) for the last year or so, and have found it's VERY comfortable. I sleep far, far better in it than I have on the ground for sure.

    Don't have any experience with the side-zip yet...but just sent mine off for a 2QZQ mod #4 this week. I'm very excited to see how this improvement will work for me. I did keep the bottom entry intact rather than have it sewed up...I like the versatility of having both options.

    My 1st hammock was an Explorer UL, and I am still a happy camper with it though I have other hammocks I like just as much or better. But, the differences in comfort are not huge. The main reason it remains one of my top choices is because sometimes I get a hankering to use my HH Super Shelter, and they are designed for each other. I have found that I can fit that HHSS #2 on my WB Blackbird just fine, though I have never actually tried that combo in the cold, and I would want to add some small mods if I did.

    There are some things I prefer about the WBBB and some things I prefer about the HH UL Explorer. Plus, if I have a hands down favorite it is probably my JRB bridge used with the JRB MW UQs. But even there, the choice is not easy- pros and cons. Still, the Explorer ( UL version anyway) is just fine.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
