User Review: The Travel Hammock Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock
Design: Hammock with attached bugnet
Ease of Setup: Simple
Weight: 27 ounces
Price Paid: $49.95
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.
