Water proof hammocks tend to become bathtubs of sweat in the summer or in humid conditions. They apparently can work ok in cold weather as kind of a vapor barrier system, or so I understand. Still it would be pretty cool to have a tent/hammock set up. ( Actually I understand that THIS
hammock does something like that.)
I wonder if anyone on this forum has experience with The GrandTrunk All Terrain Hybrid Shelter
Good points. I would add that sil-nylon might not be strong enough or durable enough to suspend a persons weight. I could be way off, but i don't think so.
