    I've been reading here for a long time, looked at reviews and spreadsheets, looked at more manufacturers' sites than i can count and i'm still confused.

    Here's the important personal stuff:

    5' tall, weight definitely under all manufacturers weight limits (yes i'm female and no i don't tell anyone my weight)...

    So length of hammock and weight limits are not a concern.

    Side sleeper - actually i do more this side, that side, on my back, try another side sleeping than anything else.

    Don't like to feel confined at all so i want height/space between me and bug net and don't want to feel like i'm in a cocoon in the hammock.

    What i do know i want:

    Side entry
    removeable bug net
    separate ridge line for fly.
    No integrated fly - i know what i want for that.

    Not sure if i want a pad in a pocket (know i don't want it in the hammock with me) or whether i'd be happiest with an uq (or both if needed for cold weather).

    Budget is not a major concern, i'd rather spend the money once wisely than have to keep upgrading.

    Weight is somewhat of a concern because i have to carry it but i have no intention of going ul, i want comfort over anything else.

    And yes, i know it's going to have to come in from the us, shipping is not a problem unless the vendor won't ship across the white line on the map.

    if you were me, what would you be buying?

    +1 on BIAS Hammocks. You might email the guys there with your height,etc. I suspect you can get away with less width at 5' tall.
