Re: Lightweight hammock........
I ordered a couple of hammocks and they seem comfy for the first couple of hours then -not so comfortable.
Haven't tried the jacks r better lay flat type -i refuse to pay $200 for a piece of nylon cloth and a little cordage.
I don't like the way a hammock blocks my view to the side etc..
A friend gave me a few tips on traditional camping that make sense -so i might remain a ground sleeper.
His advice is to trench in a little spot so that you don't slide off of your mat -any movement while sleeping keeps you centered on your mat <- that's one of my biggest complaint.
Hammocks are definately a spring summer fall outfit unless your willing to spend a $1,ooo -i'm not-.
I have an ultralight 12oz. hammock that i'll replace the steel S attachment points w/a super light carabiner -should get it down to 8-9 oz's.I plan on trying it as a day break lunch break place to flop , might be ok to hang on a hillside and glass from -time will tell.
