@N8RLVR I prefer the hammock. As @OldGuyot points out, hammocks are heavier (especially if you add an under quilt, etc.). But for me, i get a much better sleep in a hammock than I do in a tent so the extra little bit of weight is, for me, worthwhile. Better to have a good night's sleep.

If you're still unsure, REI rents hammocks. Maybe rent one for a couple nights, try it in your backyard and then you'll be in a much better position to decide.
