    Default What brand Hammock do you use?

    I happened to be a Hennessey guy myself, just curious what others think are the premium brands out there

    I love my Warbonnet Blackbird. My favorite feature is the shelf. It give me a place for my shoes and water bottle.

    Clark nx-250. Awesome hammock! It gets a lot of negatives on hiker boards but it is lighter and IMO lays better than a WB Blackbird XLC 1.1 double that I just got rid of.

    Eno and a diy. I sewed netting onto both of them for a zippered bug net. Can't see spending the $$ on more expensive ones. ...If I were planning a thru, then it might be a different story.

    My first (and only) hammock is a Hennessey Backpacker Asym. I've been very happy with it.

    Claytor. Seems like those of us who use them are few, but we also don't have a lot of the issues which need additional gear solutions like other hammocks. For example, pads work great in Claytors. Other hammocks seem to be somewhat uncomfortable with a pad, thus people buy underquilts for them.

    +1 for the Hennessey Asym. LOVE my hammock in 3 seasons. During winter hiking, I switch to a tent.

    I use 2, a dream hammock darien and a grand trunk nano 7. Love them both. I used to have a warbonnet bb but found it to be too large for me. It's also now $40 more then the darien, and that comes shipped with whoopie slings.

    Warbonnet BB 1.1 Double here to. Have not owned any others so I cannot compare but I am very happy with the BlackBird. Well made and super comfy.

    Tweaked Hennessey Hyperlite Asym and Dream UL Darien. Never use a hammock in the dead of winter though. It's just too weighty and bulky of a set up for me with what I've seen. I just got back from a multi day yo yo of the Silver Comet/Chief Ladiga Trails in GA/AL and hammocked. Loved it.

    A hammock is one of my primary shelters I carry when venturing off trail into heavily wooded mountainous sloping areas during 3 seasons or when I know I'll be below treeline at night. Sometimes, I'll even bring some chocks and hang on tight canyoneering treks. It's great to be able to swim out to a narrow marshy treed island in the middle of a river or lake and hang over the water. Ever hang at the top of a cell ph or lookout tower? Awseome!

    My goto hammock is a Dream Hammocks Darien UL. Warbonnet Blackbird is my all time favorite but a little too heavy. Occasionally I carry my BIAS WWM if I'm not anticipating bugs. All these are great hammocks!

    I started out with a Hennesy Asym and realized that the weight was just to heavy compared to other options. I then converted to a Hennesy Hammock Hyperlite and still realized for what it was it was still to heavy compared to a tarptent and other cottage shop hammocks that were on the market. Upgraded to a Dream Hammock Darien UL with a Hammock Gear cuban fiber fly and couldn't be happier. My set up weights less than most tarp tent options like a Henry Shire Contrail or Notch. I couldn't be happier with the products im using from Papasmurff from Dream Hamocks and Adam from Hamock Gear. Both guys are awesome to work with.
