Anyone else like sleeping in "tent hammocks" when camping?

The best part is no back pain in the morning! We're getting too old to sleep on the ground, now.

1. I'd love to for the weight savings.

But hammocks actually kill my back.

3. I'd like to try one someday, but most of my backpacking trips

involve a lot of nights at/above the treeline, so a tent or tarp is more useful. When a trip is entirely in trees it's usually car-camping with my wife - so again, a tent is more fun...

4. I get what you're saying...

I think that's the only drawback to the hammocks...although, they say, "where there's a will".
