@N8RLVR yep, many responses, always depends...

I have many backpacking friends who go both ways....between tents and hammocks, that is.

Most have both, so they're basically ready for the expected terrain and weather before setting out.  They don't carry both, but have that flexibility.

But anecdotally,  it seems to me that those who really proselytize for the hammock do so for the 'good nights sleep' they get.

So I guess you don't really know until you try it.

tough call, good luck!
