So... Things need a little perking up around here!

What is everyone's thoughts on hammocks? After going on our teen backpacking trip, I decide to purchase one myself. Two of our TLTs borrowed some from a classmate, and used them instead of tents! I thought it was a novel idea, but not overly practical. But I have since determined that once you get used to them and figure them out, they actually have some serious benefits!
Space Saving - The girls hung one right above the other.
Light - Mine is 21 oz.
Location - Can be hung on a hillside, over rocks and roots, even over a stream!
Comfortably - This one is kind of questionable. I think you have to get used to it. I am a stomach and side sleeper. Note - If you sleep diagonal, with the proper sag (don't make a taut hammock) you can actually lay close to flat. Also form fitting, no terrible pressure points.
Practical - Can cook from your hammock. Imagine a rainy morning. You just lean out over your hammock and cook comfortably under you rain tarp while all your tenting friends are sitting miserably in the rain trying to cook. Eventually you invite them to cook under your tarp.
Fun - Without a doubt there is something novel about having a hammock on a campout just to hang out in (get it?). And the good ones are two person, or in my case, as many as you want up to 350 lbs.

I still need to figure out some good ideas for winter camping. A disadvantage (or advantage) to a hammock is that it is tremendously cooler than sleeping on the ground.

Anyway, what your your thoughts, experiences, and ideas?

I haven't been in a hammock in years, but the only time I spent more than 15 minutes in one, I got out with a sore back. Plus it's ALWAYS cold here in New England when we camp with Pathfinders, so we want all the warmth we can get.

I think that hammocks are cool! I don't actually own one, but I have had a few people let me try theirs. I am thinking about getting one however, so I will be sure to check out the links that you posted crazy acorn! As far as winter goes, if it gets too cold, I might suggest that you simply just sleep on the ground.

Hammock camping sounds like a lot of fun. I've never experienced myself, so I'm not sure pfcamper.

Can't beat the price and weight of one. I'll have to buy one and try it out.

ya, I've seen them around quite a bit, and if I ever get a hammock of my own, that more than likely would be the brand I got!

Well... someone very near and dear to me just bought me one of the ENO double nest hammocks for an early birthday present... Can't wait till it gets here!

I guess if Gilligan and the Skipper could sleep in one for three seasons, one campout can't hurt too much. :D

Hammocks are one of the best product for ultimate bedding while camping or outing. It is better to use a hammock trap to get rid from rain and snowy condition.
