Well lads, I drunk-purchased the Byers hammock on the last drop and luckily it seems solid! Happy with the buy... other than the fact that I somehow didn't spring for the optional straps, smh. Whiskey makes me cheap I guess.
Anyway, there seems to be a whole lot of sellers on the market with a wide array of prices. As this is my first hammock, does anyone have any tips / experience / recommendations for aftermarket straps? And maybe flies? I live in Canada & I'm hoping for something lightweight enough for 2-3 day hikes if possible.
Currently eyeing the ENO Atlas https://www.amazon.com/ENO-Eagles-Nest-Outfitters-Suspension/dp/B00K30H3O8?tag=outdoorvoyager-20
but all those dirt-cheap Chinese sellers on ebay are tempting... what's a reasonable price and practical weight / length? Best to get straps with or without carabiners?
Don't leave me hanging... the suspense is killing me! :^)
