    Talking Hello I'm Jason and I WANT to be a Hammoholic!

    However, I have no idea which brand will do. I'm 250 lbs and looking for something very light and versitle. I toss and turn at night so I'm not sure if that helps. And, I would like to be able to buy a complete setup w/canopy. Please suggest away!!!

    Another Welcome to the madness. I would suggest before buying one to go to a local group hang in your area and see what other people have. Most of them would not mind if you laid in them to try them out. Then you are a little more informed in your decision.

    Welcome. Say goodbye to your disposable income. It will be disposed.

    ENO and Grand Trunk seem to be the beginner's favorites, but if I could do it again I'd probably go with a BIAS Weight Weenie Micro or a Warbonnet Blackbird.

    Welcome to the madness you have certainly come to the right place. If I were starting all over again I would start off with a Warbonnet XLC. You can use it as a netted hammock or a no net hammock. I personally have not tried it out (but do own two black birds) and he makes a great product.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
