THIS IS NOT A THREAD ABOUT SLEEPING COMFORT. PLEASE STAY ON TOPIC.
This is somewhat related to the "XUL or UL?" thread below, which has some good ideas. But...
Sometimes on whiteblaze, hammockers chime in that, to go light, one should try a hammock.
Maybe I'm missing something here...this statement that hammocks are lighter puzzles me.
Is a subjective thing?
They don't seem "light" to me...comfort can be argued, I don't see how "light" can be defensible. I haven't seen evidence that hammocks are "light"...maybe lighter than a free-standing tent with a rainfly, but does this qualify them as lighter?
