    Hello from Jersey!

    Hey guys!

    Found this site from Shug's videos - couldn't stop watching them & ended up watching all 9 parts.

    I've been tent camping for a few years now on the AT here in Jersey, PA, and NY and haven't had too many issues. My buddy and I have been thinking of getting hammocks instead just due to how rocky the terrain here is and hammocks just look more comfortable. I've been thinking of going with the Hennessy Hammocks (ultralight) but then started reading about the Warbonnets and am now torn.

    We've been backpacking for a while now but I do not consider myself an expert by any means. Most of my equipment is store bought and I enjoy that predictability. With that said, I like how the Hennessy comes as one main package including the fly, tent, and snakeskin whereas the Warbonnet looks a bit more complex but has great features like the foot area and the shelf.

    Also, what would you guys recommend - side zip or bottom entry?

    Thanks in advance and it's great to "meet" you guys!

    Welcome from the Jersey Shore! If you're torn between Warbonnet and Hennessy, wait till you become more educated about all the other hammock vendors and what their models have to offer.

    Then there are tarps, underquilts and topquilts to ponder, suspension options (straps vs. whoopie slings) - it never ends!

    Not making it any easier!

    My main goal right now is to find a great hammock that can act as a platform for me down the road.

    At the moment, I am looking at a Blackbird double layer with adjustable webbing suspension and a superfly tarp. I'll also take a look at under quilts.

    Good choice, that's what I've got. Probably one of the best combos available. If you don't like it you can resell it on here for practically what you paid for it.

    Howdy from the Jersey shore! Welcome aboard, and get ready for massive knowledge!
    there are a lot of folks from Jersey on here. Kind of reminds me of that south park episode where we do invade the USA and the gulf of Jersey...lol
