Re: Hammock advice

Hi, what advantages do you see with a hammock over something like the Yahill cot on high legs with a tarp above.? 916f017a-e79e-4f51-85e1-f343630d5fad._CR0,0,1500,1500_PT0_SX300__.jpg The cot will not work where the ground is steep or uneven and even as light and small as it is i doubt it would pac...
