I cannot decide what to do.
Should i get:
Clark Tropical Ultra Jungle Hammock
Hennessy Hyperlite Asym Zip
Weight Weenie Micro (and get someone to sow in a double zipper nano net)
seem to be slightly different choices. My understanding of Clark and, on a smaller scale, the HH's is that they are more of an all weather solution. Heavier - with heavier-ish materials and such. The micro would be more of a true UL choice for a backpacker and of course would need and addtional tarp for coverage.
I do like my HH's but not the tarps.

Kind of defeats the purpose of the Weight Weenie Micro to add a zippered bugnet, in my opinion. I'm sure that zipper fans have asked BIAS for the same, though.

Clark, hands down, no questions asked second to none. My son has a HH Scout zip, he enjoys. But, in comparison the quality and craftsman ship of the Clark is far superior IMO, plus it's made in the USA and not china. Either option I would recommend swapping out the suspension for whoopies, we did and shaved some weight as well as made rigging much easier. Also if you go with a Clark I would recommend upgrading to their Vertex tarp, it is Awesome again IMO.
Either way enjoi.

Light weight. Low prices. Great gear.
Re: Cant Decide
Or you could wait a little and bias has eluded to a sewn in bug net on a few threads...
