    Good Price Comp. All appears to be good quality gear, not cheap junk that is a total waste. H advantage often over looked is that wind resistant rainfly of tent is very custom while tarps are interchangeable giving more color, weather, cost options. Some long time camping friends boast how cheap their gear is then complain when they get wet, cold, hot etc. I consider how much i spend on gas driving to wilderness, buy reasonable quality, take good care of it. Still have a jungle hammock from 1970s, much better hammocks available today. Good summary, hopefully most will consider what they NEED, not just short term cost.

    Another way to look at the parts….

    Tent = Hammock

    Tent Fly = Hammock Tarp

    Sleeping Pad = Under Quilt (UQ)

    Sleeping Bag = Top Quilt (TQ)

    Yeah, it depends on what you’re going for. You can get into a hammock for cheap or you can spend a bunch. Depends on the weather as to if you’re summer or winter camping. If you’re looking for a good middle of the road camping hammock like a Hennessy, this is a good site
