I saw a DD hammock video today and now I am curious. Does the Jungle Hammock Poles actually spread the hammock so it affect the lay or are they just for the bugnet?

It's a little of both. It doesn't really affect the lay. It mostly keeps the top of the sides off of me so I don't have to worry about waking up with my face on the bug net with a bunch of bloodsuckers stuck to my face through the noseeum. I'm thinking about trying out the hammock in a couple weeks with out the poles to see what it looks like.
