Darien UL, DL? vs WBBB?
I have been looking into replacing my HH hyperlite, and while the WBBB looks very nice, the weight of the Darien UL and dutchware look fantastic.
My concern is that I am looking into doing some long distance backpacking for backwoods science research and maybe an AT run and I am worried that a lightweight single layer may not be able to stand up to continued use over several weeks and months.
I am careful with my gear, but I can be a bit of a walking murphey's law at times. Things just tend to go wrong for me .
So I was wondering if it was possible to get a doublelayer, and if that would improve the durability.
Also, does anyone have any experience with the Darien UL on these kinds of trips?
Thanks for your time!
Have a look at the Hammock Calculator on the site.
You can configure whatever you want.
e.g. Darien DL 1.0 fabric...24oz
Darien SL 1.6 fabric....21oz
Thanks, though I think I've got it figured out.
I got a raise on my last paycheck, so I'm ending up with both!
At least I'll have a spare so my friends don't have an excuse not to join me on trips.
just to let you know,
I did the AT last year with a HH hyperlight the entire way.
if you need to unload it,
let me know.
I traded mine, and I now regret doing so.
In some mysterious way woods have never
seemed to me to be static things.
In physical terms, I move through them;
yet in metaphysical ones,
they seem to move through me. -
