So I used this hammock all summer. I tried out several of my hiking partners hammocks and this one was my favorite. Here's the thing about hammocks- the bottom of course will get cold, but the sides of the hammock also wrap you up. If your sleeping bag gets compressed by the hammock, then it can't loft. No sleeping bag works if it can't loft. I simply purchased an extra large sleeping pad that is wider then my body. The pad keeps the hammock off of my shoulders so that my bag can loft and keep me warm. I was burning up in my hammock at 35 degrees. You have to use a nice thick sleeping pad if you want your bag to be able to loft.
Rained all night twice this year. I love being off the ground. I don't care how much it rains! Of course I had a nice cat tarp over me.
Used this a few times now...im impressed with the overall sturdiness of the fabric/stitching. The stuff pocket on my buddy's more expensive hammock tore as he was setting up but i wont mention any brand names. The no see um bliss hammock is comfy and durable. I toss around a lot when i sleep and this hammock took all the abuse i could dish out. I have a eno cat tarp that fits it perfectly and i've stayed dry in hours of heavy rain. Once you sleep in a hammock you will never sleep on the ground again!
I spent a week camping at Cumberland Island in Georgia. There were a lot of mosquitoes and other insects, but I slept in comfort the whole week with absolutely no bother from the bugs. If I sleep on the ground, I get a sore back, so this really improved my week. The hammock was tiny when packed, weighed nothing, and was simple to repack. I had no trouble hanging it and when we moved to a site that needed an extension, I just used some longer cord that I had and that worked fine.
Great hammock, easy to set up. Bug net works great and is reversible if you don't need it. I usually like use the hammock without the bug netting because it's just easier to get in and out of the hammock. Aside from that it's a very comfortable hammock and virtually impossible to fallout, even if you're a restless sleeper. My only wish was that there was some way to space out the bug netting so it doensn't feel so closed in...but maybe that's just my own neurosis! :)
This is great for camping! It really helps to cut down on space because with this awesome hammock all I need is my sleeping bag and have no need for a tent or sleeping pad. Love this! Comfortable and even great to set up in the backyard
