Backyard practice is priceless!
On my last trip, I slept in a homemade hammock without a net. It was my 1st experience with that concept. My stuff escaped while I was thrashing about trying to find the sweet spot. Once settle in, things stayed pretty much in place, but it was a 67" wide hammock.
I have decided to put a zippered net on it as well as my other DIY hammocks. I've figured out that I'm a zippered net person.
