My need for an overcover is a little different. I agree that strictly for weather purposes, in most climates, it's not needed. However, I'm a group leader. I bring along high school and college age campers on one of my trips. I simply need an overcover for privacy. I've been looking at the Dangerbird very closely because it is a hammock that has an overcover.
I would love to have the option to detach the cover and leave it behind when it's just me or the family on a trip though. I'm hoping to place an order pretty soon, and that is an excellent option!

Thank you all for your recommendations. Based on those, I should rule out the overcover, and if I ever need winter protection, I should go with a winter sock instead, but that's not going to be a concern in my immediate future.
