You can usually pick up one on Whiteblaze or Ebay for about $100. It is a pretty complete system, all you need is a pad for cheap and you can upgrade to an underquilt later. If you buy one of the real cheap hammocks and tarps, you're just wasting money in my opinion, as you'll want to upgrade soon.
