I may never sleep inside again.
Jungle safari XXL.
Got it secondhand (but never used) on ebay. This thing is more comfortable than my mattress, love it.

I love my camping hammock, that mosquito netting is pretty sweet. Definitely much more comfortable than the ground or an air mattress.

You sleep outside every night?
Yep pretty much every night I go to sleep out there on the porch. I did stay in a couple nights when it was really hot and muggy at night.
I have a window open close to where I sleep in case my wife has vagal syncope spells during the night. I am going to pick her up one of those can air boat horns to have in case I can't hear her call for me.
Long wide porch and it is nice. I have gone to sleep and wake as the sun starts to pop up.

I use a Blackbird. Usually do close to 30 nights a year backpacking with it. The coldest I have done was this Feb during one of our snowstorms at the RRG. It got down to 8. I used a hammockgear incubator underquilt. It’s a 20 degree quilt with an extra oz of down. I stayed very comfortable. Didn’t want to get out in the morning.

I gave warbonnet a hard look as well, missed out on a deal on one but im happy with the Hennessy, its massive but i wont be trekking on foot very far. Id buy a smaller one if that ever changes.

We used to do a winter thru-hike every January/February. Those nights that get down into the single digits definitely change things up a bit.

The war bonnet is huge too. Honestly I’d like a less bulky one for backpacking but I do love the Blackbird
My sister bought me a cheap one a couple years back and i just gave it a try this spring and added a cheap bugnet. I liked it so much I decided to upgrade. I quit camping cause tents were a pita and uncomfortable. Campers are just too much. If i cant get my family to hammock camp with me ill go it alone lol. Should be nice for motorcycle trips too. Eff a hotel.
