If you want to go the hammock route, then Give Hennessey Hammocks (HH) a try. With a HH you dont have much shoulder squezze and with the side pullouts you get plenty of room inside the hammock. Be warned though, A HH is the gateway Hammock to the Hammock haning culture. Soon you find your self sitting behind a sowing machine making your own version of what ever style suits yout fancy that particular week.
The one thing Im not to keen on about the HH is that it is a royal pain to try and use a GG 1/4 wide thinlight inside the hammock, that's why I went and made a Risk zHammock, but did whats called the Hennessy Whipp to bring the ends of the hammock together. That way I get the ASYM design of the HH, but with a top loading design, and a double layered hammock, so I can stick my pad between the layers and not deal with wrestling the pad.
Also If hammocking is right for you, you should consult www.hammockforums.net for more information on many different types of hammocks and techiqunes about hammocking in general. Happy Hanging.
