    Just bought a new daily sleeper. And WOW

    Hey guys so I've been sleeping in a dutchware netless 1.6 hexon single layer hammock as my daily bed for a year now. Two days ago I went and ordered a la siesta flora in zebra colors. This is their 13 footer organic cotton.

    IT CAME IN TODAY!! HOLY COW GUYS. This is the most comfortable hammock I have EVER slept in. At 6'2" this thing envelops me. Yet when I get my hammock angle right it's sooooooooo ooo comfortable. I took a nap this afternoon and fell asleep in less than 10 minutes. I know some people here swear by the 11'6" la siesta Carolinas, but I'm glad I got the king size. Check it out. (sorry for the blinding white boy legs.... Yes I'm wearing shorts.)

    Looks comfy! I appreciate your timing with this, as I was just thinking the other day of looking for something new for my 'daily sleeper'. I have used my current DIY hammock every night (sometimes day) for the last few years, and it's starting to show it.

    I have two of them that I rotated for 5 years of daily use. I love them. In the winter I hang two hammocks and put an old down sleeping bag between them for warmth.
    Went back to a bed for 1.5 yrs and now am trying out a new WBRR, which I like very much so far. Enjoy!

    looks awesome! I've been occasionally sleeping in an eno dn on a stand and find that to be pretty comfortable, but your setup looks wayy nicer — I think I'd get rid of my mattress if I had a setup like that.

    Yea my wife and I don't have beds. My Lower back pain is gone. Love how much space we have in our room. All in all I really enjoy my set up.

    Same here! Still a hint of pain now and then, but that's my own fault for not doing the PT and exercise I'm supposed to. I'll get back into it eventually.

    I did see a "mattress blowout" at the store today, so I may go buy one. I want it more for some place to lay out clothes and stuff instead of actual sleeping!

    I agree it is very comfortable. I wore one out. Itís got a permanent-stretch/rut after 2 years of nightly. Thatís the only reason I like Carolina better: heavier fabric wears longer.

    What kind of underquilt do you use on this? I've been sticking with my standard 11' dutch netless just because that's all I know with my HG Incubator. Works fine, but if I could do better...
