    I also like the 11 ft. Dutch Netless Hammocks - they're usually $42 but Dutch has some on sale for $30.

    I also like the Dutch Whoopie Hook suspension ($39).

    Unfortunately, the ENO Guardian bugnet is designed for ENO hammocks, which are shorter (9 ft. 4 inches), so the bugnet won't work with Dutch Netless hammocks. However, Dutch also sells a Fronkey-style bugnet ($57).

    Buttinasling also sells Fronkey bugnets in different weights. I like the Nano-Buginator ($64.95).

    As for tarps, you'll have to choose whether you want a cheap tarp, which will usually weigh more, or a 4-season tarp with doors, and choose between silnylon, silpoly or cuben fiber. Many people just starting out go for a Kelty 12 x 12 which can be found on Amazon for $40 to $70. The HH Hex is also a good value at around $70.

    There are smaller tarps that provide less coverage, but I'm not a big fan of minimalist tarps - they don't do too well in blowing rain. When I first started hammocking, I didn't want to pay more than $25 for a tarp - so I have a bunch of suboptimal $25 tarps, but those deals don't seem to be around anymore (or they're from no-name Chinese companies). I picked up an HH Hex for $20 a few years ago, and that's the best deal I ever found, but it's heavy. I also made my own silnylon hex tarp, but that will still run you around $70 once you add in the thread, fabric, etc., (and you need a sewing machine).

    Finally, you're probably going to want to think about getting an underquilt. The Jarbidge is a good value, usually for $100 or less. Some people get by with pads like a ccf pad, but once you try an underquilt you'll wonder why you ever struggled with a pad. Some folks buy a double layer hammock so you can put the pad in between the layers, but I'd rather save my money and get an underquilt!

    Just for some more information my wife is 5' 5" and she prefers an 11' hammock (Warbonnet is her favorite) It encloses her nicely and she can still see out the entry side.

    I have a DIY 11' hammock and an ENO Double clone. I prefer the ENO- style because it's wider. I think I paid $20 for it at a local store. The suspension was garbage. Upgraded to Dutchware Junebugs with some 1 inch straps and love them.

    My DIY hammock is lighter...I just don't feel as comfortable in it. I think the narrower width is the main reason. I'm 6' tall btw.

    Also, the Gemini No-Sew DIY underquilt is a great option if you can get two down throws from Costco. I've used mine down to near freezing with an appropriate sleeping bag and been toasty warm.
