Hi guys, I have a Hennessey Hammock, an ultralite but not the Asym version cause I got it on sale. I sleep on my back anyway. However, the first time a friend of mine and I pitched it (he is a dedicated hammock user) while backpacking, in the morning, the thing was almost U shaped and I wasn't terribly comfortable. Maybe the guylines stretch with the initial use but I haven't really used it since.
I am looking at the E-wing in conjunction with a Titanium Goat Ptarmigan bivy with the full mesh window. Any bivy more than a 1.5lbs, it doesn't make sense cause I can simply use my single wall tent that is about a tad under 3lbs.... I'm also considering just a basic silnylon tarp that is probably cheaper than a shaped tarp and bigger, but perhaps more weight... However, the e-wing is something that REI sells so I could use part of my divident on that.. The Ptarmigan is definitely not sold there..
