Has anyone tried just sewing a rectangle of netting onto one side of the hammock like a Byer? I was thinking that it could just have a zip on one side and otherwise be sewed right round, but only about 7 feet long so that it doesn't extend all the way to the ends. It would pucker up a lot towards the ends, but that shouldn't matter as long as the ridgeline keeps it off the swinger.
When not in use the whole hammock could just be flipped over, and the netting on the bottom would conform to the body of the hammock.
(Brain still spinning) Or the zip could be eliminated with a Hennessy style orifice that's only used to enter the bugnet side, meaning all that's required is 7' x 5' of netting. 24' of grosgrain for the edges and something down the middle (a grosgrained seam?) to act as a ridgeline. When the netting isn't needed it could be used to hold a quilt or mat, or even grass or leaves.
