First off I'd like to say what an amazing forum! I'm brand spanking new to the forum. I stumbled upon the forum the other day in search of reviews for hammocks. We are a small organization that spends close to 365 days a year in the field using rescued dogs to locate scat from endangered species. Our most recent study was a census in Cambodia for tigers. After having slept in a hammock for an extended period on this trip, I was sold and I've been trying to determine the best bet for supplying our teams with lite durable hammocks from the US. Our Cambodian hammocks were $10, with an attached zippered mosquito net and a quilted bottom. I'm not quite sure how to add photos here yet but will try to do so soon. You can see some of the photos mixed in here if you like, http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...d=171836484559 .
Handlers and dogs each had their own hammocks in Cambodia. The dogs loved them and would pretty much go right to sleep in them. I was curious if any of the members of the forum have had good or bad luck with dogs in their hammocks. Would the material hold up to dog nails? Would the dogs able to get in and out on their own (for example, I can't see a dog getting in through a HH bottom)? We're of course looking for low pack weight and easy set up as we'll be on the move each day and usually packing up in the dark before sunrise.
Thanks a bunch,
