User Review: Byer Moskito Traveller
Design: Bug Free Hammock
Ease of Setup: Intuative
Price Paid: $32
A 3 is a well deserved rating. It stands halfway between perfect and, well, crap. As does the Moskito.
Every measure has been taken to cut weight - this thing is incredibly light, I will not lie. However, the construction does suffer. The 10 or 12 ropes "securing" the hammock to whatever is used to suspend it (hooks, tree straps, etc.) are reminiscent of shoelaces. One does not feel secure laying down.
Furthermore, every measure is taken to encourage you to lie diagonally because the hammock is constructed "the Brazilian way", i.e. the "shoelaces" on each side of the hammock are of an uneven cut, forming a triangle with one leg longer than the other. The result: unless one is able to find "the spot", so to speak, he/she will always slide toward the right side of the hammock, (and sometimes off as happened to my less than fortunate hiking partner).
Unless you've had experience with Brazillian hammocks before, skip this one (I know that it looks great on the pic., and that it has the MOST FUNCTIONAL net settup in the current hammock market).
However, if you're in for a challenge, buy it and train yourself - a few times I was able to find "the spot" and sleep happy/bugfree for hours.
