    WTB Hammock with a bug net (first timer, looking for relatively cheap one)

    Hello, i am just getting into hammocks, as they seem like a very good idea for camping. I would like a hammock that is relatively cheap in price because i have not used one before and would like to try a hammock out first before possibly going onto the big money ones. Just send me a message if you think you have something I might be interested in. Thanks!

    (I am in Canada, but i can get items shipped to a place in Detroit, MI)

    how big/heavy are you?
    that makes a difference in price and availability.
    for example, the Byer Moskito is only rated for 225 or 250 pounds and is the cheapest (and lowest cost) hammock I know of with built in bug net.
    $80 gets you a Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro, rated for up to 400 pounds.

    I have two hammocks I need to sell

    Brand new War Bonnet Black Bird. I'm asking only $140 for it, and have other accessories if you are interested.

    I also have a Hennessy UL Backpacker for $140. I don't have a fly for it, but I have a different fly I can sell too.

    These are obviously in the *more expensive* range, but the prices are significanly less and they're still new.

    I just got a Skeeter Beeter Pro from They had the best price I could find, about $62. Plus, they have a first time buyer 20% off discount. I couldn't pass it up.
