    I use a eno. With a pro fly tarp. And a eno bug net. I like being able to use the tarp and bugnet on the ground if there are no trees.

    Well for colder nights I use the NX250 with weather shield and in the dawg days and nights of summer I use the Hennessy Safari, and when out for a day hike I may put the Grand Trunk UL in the bag for a mid day lunch/nap. So this year in April and May on the AT I'll be going with Clark June thru August the Hennessy, then back to the Clark.

    I have two DIY hammocks. A 10' and 11'. Haven't seen wilderness logics mentioned yet. They make some great hammocks.

    WB Blackbird, 1.1 single and 1.1 double. Double is way more comfy, but heavier. Love that double! I switched back to the double after using both on a recent trip. I did not realize just how big a difference that second layer makes. I am well within the weight limit for the single, but it does stretch a lot more. I have gotten the weigh of the double down to 19 ounces without the suspension. This does include my ridgeline light and a couple of pieces of cord with mitten hooks to pull out the shelf and the door side.
    I also use a MBM hammock (made by me). I can totally customize my home made hammocks. I have one, a 9 footer, 1.1 material (7 ounces with dynagide continuous loops and an adjustable ridgeline), with a full-length Tulle bug net (1 1/2 ounces) and a customized strap suspension (using 8 foot straps, altogether the suspension weighs 5 1/2 ounces). The set up weighs in at 14 ounces for the whole mess. Very comfy and convenient.

    I have a Warbonnet Blackbird 1.1 double and a 11' Dream Hammock FreeBird. Both good hammocks but I am really enjoying the FreeBird right now. I love the openness with no net to bother with.

    Buggy season - Netty from Hammeck and non-buggy season - Snipe from Wilderness Logics. I have other hammocks but those 2 seem to be my go-to set ups.

    Warbonnet Blackbird DL 1.1. I was originally planning on using a pad and hence the DL. Since I'm now using an UQ, I'm now thinking about either a SL 1.7 Blackbird or going with something from Dream Hammock or Hammeck and try either the Argon 1.6 or HyperD 1.6 fabric.
    Remote for detachment, narrow for chosen company, winding for leisure, lonely for contemplation, the Trail beckons not merely north and south, but upward to the body, mind, and soul of man.

    I use a light owl made by wilderness logics. It's' not the lightest hammock weighing twenty ounces but I like a double layer hammock. My three season base weight is 9.5 lbs so it doesn't play a factor and I get a good nights sleep.For winter hangs I used a Dream Hammock Thunderbird.

    I love my Warbonnet Blackbird 1.1 Dbl in a Bishop bag plus Dutch clips and hope to stay off the ground for good. I currently use an Edge Tarp with Walmart $2 DIY Snakeskins and Dutch Stingerz; while I save for a Cuben Fiber Winter Palace. I currently use a Pad that will work in conjunction with 3/4 UQ when I get to that point. Both Whiteblaze,net and Hammockforum.com are great sites for research, learning, and making backpacking/hiking so much more fulfilling. Thanks!

    I use a HH Explorer. That has been fine for me, it sold me on hammock camping as I was a committed tent guy. I think if I was going to get another one it may be a WBBB 1.7 dbl. I think the foot box looks like it would be comfortable. Very happy with the HH at the moment.
