I saw the thread about tent vs. hammock, and I saw the thread for tent recommendations. In both, the Hennessey hammocks were recommended. I checked out the website and absolutely love the Explorer for my clydesdale body. However, I like the setup and multi-usability of the Lawson BlueRidge hammock. If I am absolutely stuck without any trees, it sets up as a bivy tent. I also like the idea of the poles to make the inside seem more like a tent.
The problem is that the Lawson website doesn't have a lot of info about their tent. Nothing specific. No sizes (will it fit me comfortably at 6'4" and 250#?), no pack sizes like length (will the poles fit in the vertical bags on my Arkel T-42's?), and no specifics on fabric weight. In fact, it only really says that it is only 4 lbs, which isn't much more than the 9' Hennessey Explorer.
So, any advice? Any Lawson users? Any specs?
I'm buying in the next couple days. Doing a weekend long practice tour next month.
I live in Hawaii, and the camping areas and parks have plenty of trees, and I can't find any P&R regs preventing use of a hammock.
