    If you hike in places where/when bugs are not a problem, pick up a 1.7SL Traveler! Nice basic hammock for a lighter option.

    I'm surprised some engineer with too much time on their hands didn't make a liquid-cooled hammock yet. Actually, that would probably feel TOO cold on back and still warm on your top, so we better do...
