here's a photo of what I'm getting.
(I currently have a "standard" hammock as well)
I like this design for a number of reasons. The netting is a bonus, the fact it can be used flat (using sticks at either end), and it can even double as a small tent, should I (for whatever reason) decide to use it as such.
It would be great if the "roof" was waterproof though, then the whole unit would be completely self contained. -although I'd still need a larger tarp for colder weather to "tent" around the hammock for wind protection...
here are the specs:
* G.I. style
* 78" x 30" x 20" in size
* Elevated shelter
* Mesh netting with taffeta nylon
* Coated roof
* Heavy cotton canvas floor
* Attached ropes an clews
does "coated roof" entail that it IS waterproofed?
