Summary

Low cost, reasonable quality. Don't overlook this hammock.

Pros

  • Low cost (purchased on sale for $24.99)
  • Combined bug net with hammock saves weight

Cons

  • Rather short in length

Do need to purchase something such as tree straps to hang the hammock. This adds cost and weight, but it is fairly normal to have to purchase these separately.

Summary

This affordable hammock is great if you are looking for a compact, lightweight, bug-free system.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Double zipper mosquito net
  • Flip over if you want to use without the net

Cons

  • Have to be careful zipping so it does not get caught in netting

I've used this hammock in as low as 30° with a tent footprint overhead (not included) + Therm-a-Rest, and most recently in a camping trip to the Florida Keys. The screen kept the tiny (and annoying) no-see-ums out and was great for catching a breeze at night.

I sit in it like a swing chair during the day and am going to start bringing it to picnics. Pair it with a lightweight tarp and couple of quick hammock straps and you're good to go!
