I have a HH Safari and Expedition. We are heading out in the morning for me and my son's first hammock outing. We are using the HH tarps for now and Jacks R Better under quilts. I have already figured out that I need to purchase the JRB top quilts because my sleeping bags are WAY too bulky to carry on the bike.

Home built with cheap chinook diamond tarp and a nice 3/4 underquilt I bought off hammock forums.

I have a bunch of hammocks , but my Eureka is the only one that is a true hammock/tent hybrid. it's a bridge style and by far the most comfortable I have ever been in so far. The upper and lower storage is a huge bonus. The fact that the convertible rain fly is self contained and can be deployed at different levels while never having to get out is also nice. Awesome for moto camping. Quick, comfortable and adaptive. But it is heavy and packs big so it would not pull duty for backpacking. And it also has no pad sleeve and due to it's configuration I can't see a way to use an under quilt w/the rain fly deployed so forget about it it for cold weather.

The only time I could see doing that is in a place where the nearest two trees are a hundred miles away.

This is why I say no to under quilts (aside from retarded prices) use a thermarest tapered prolite inside your sleeping bag so it doesn't move around you'll be toasty warm, pack small, and ready to go to ground if needed. It's too simple.

I just spent 5 nights hanging in my Hennessy Ultralight hammock while doing the WABDR ride in WA state. It was simply fabulous. The prior week I hung 3 of the 5 nights of the MT1000.

Dan are you a member of hammockforums.net ? If you want to try one stick a post up on there and there should be someone not far from you who can help. I love my WBB, but when the weather is really bad its the clark every time. Yes, they are more expensive, and the small poles that come with them are a bit of a pain in the ass to be honest, but when its up, you're in it and the wind is howling and the rain beating you can't help but feel pretty smug.

Also, if you do try o ne and like it, keep your eye on the for sale board as they sometimes come up on there.
