    Heaviest Hammock setup?

    Was perusing Youtube today and found this video.



    So reading the description and comments you find out that this guy's setup weighs 10 lbs before insulation and he wants to get it down to 7 lbs. Imagine how he would feel if he found all of us here.

    How about this one?

    Found this one.

    Even if you maxed it at 8 people and divided the load evenly, that is 8.25 lbs a person.

    My tent weighs that much....my GT UL and the overweight hanging gear I'm using right now (temporary, I swear!) comes in at just 2 pounds.
    I prefer to remain an enigma.
