User Review: Byer Moskito Traveller
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40
I purchased one of these at a boy scout summer camp. It's ok but a little small for me (I am 6'1"). The net hangs on my head and face. Without the net (flipped over) it's fine but I would not want to camp in a buggy area without the net. Price is right on at $40.
- Inexpensive but not cheap
- Comfortable as any other amazonian style hammock
- Net hangs in my face when trying to lay with netting over me
- Not long enough for me at 6'1"
Setup is straightforward and easy. Use your own straps or purchase the ropes for this and it is really easy to hang. It does not come with a rainfly or tarp so you will need to purchase one of these. It is nice in that you can use the netting or flip the hammock over and use it net-less.
Comfort is good without the net, but if you are big and try to use the net it is difficult to fit in it. I am 6'1" and my head is so close to the end that the netting hangs onto my face and head.
I find this good for lounging but not for overnight camping. And you still have to buy a rainfly to keep the rain off you. If you are shorter and want something really small and compact this may be for you. If you want something larger and more set up for camping you should look elsewhere.
