Ease of Setup: Simple

I've used my Skeeter Beeter Pro on over 20 backpacking trips. It keeps the bugs out with the bugnet deployed. When the temps are cooler and the bugs are away, simply flip the hammock over and leave the bugnet underneath. When flipped over for cooler weather, the bugnet can also hold a sleeping pad or other insulation in place under the hammock.

I have the Skeeter Beeter Pro and the UL version. The Pro does weigh a bit more, but it is also larger, more durable and supports more weight.

While the include suspension system made of cord is simple and durable, I chose to replace it with 5m of polyester webbing. The 8mm ropes dig into trees more than webbing, and the included 3m ropes are often not long enough when hanging from larger diameter trees.

All in all, this is a really good product. I have four different types of hammocks from this company and have no problem recommending them to others. I'm not sure how their warranty process goes as I have never had a reason to return one.

Stay away from Travel Hammock products. The company does not honor their warranty.

I had a hammock rip on me and first they were very slow responding to me (2 months). Then they offered to send me a replacement. They sent the wrong one and let me keep both. They said they were also sending out the right hammock and it has still never arrived. They claim they already sent it and gave me the tracking number for the one sent before.

I've even spoke with Kevin, the owner, he was very unprofessional and complained that he was losing too much money over this warranty ordeal when his company makes millions. He also claimed that they cannot fix my hammock because I bought it for under their MSRP from a different online retailer.

I've had so many problems with this company, and I never intend to deal with them again. Beware!
