Biggest difference I learned was the shelf and foot pocket of the WBBB.
I was sorely tempted to get a Hennessy with the addition of the side zipper (I still might). I read that several people didn't like the hook n' loop cause it caught debris in it. Also made it hard to reach down to get your boots off.
Ultimately though - The Hennessey Deep Jungle was 2 layers with a zipper and cost about $25 more that the WBBB. I still might get one...

Yup, they'll argue with you. I love mine BUT others love their Henneseys and Clarks and Grand Trunks and DIY and etc.
But the WBBB like the Hennesey and the Clarks are all great providers and they all have a top notch product. Makes the decision process harder. Don't just go by price, look at features and find the one that fits your needs the most. Remember with a mosquito net up you'll be hotter then without BUT you'll be less miserable then without the mosquito net AND mosquitos.
Then again, you can always throw the net over the ridgeline and sleep without.
