bugnet from Eagles Nest Outfitters. It has drawstrings on each end so that it will slip over your existing hammock suspension. With the HH having a built-in ridgeline, you wouldn't even need a separate one for the net.
They are fairly heavy, at 16oz, but most of that is the thick stuffsack that is attached. It could be removed quite easily.
You could always make a DIY one, though.

in this picture, the guy in front is laying in a hh that i cut the net off of.
the loose material on the out side is a super shelter.
i think it does change the dynamics of the hh some what (removing the net), but it still lays great.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
I am moderately claustrophobic, but the HH is quite good in this respects. There is plenty of room to move about. If anything, I get a feeling of agrophobia in it.
As for the wind, I was on Mt Sterling (#38) and the wind was really howling. I enjoy the side-to-side sway of a hammock but the wind would cause the trees to 'shudder' giving me a ripple effect down the length of the hammock. That takes some getting used to. I also had fog set in, getting everything damp, especially the underpad. I'm going to look for a way to close off the ends of my Cat-cut tarp to help keep my a bit drier in those situations.

Oh yeah! Looks great! BTW, recently I placed a GripClip on my netting just above where the under cover pushes it in, and tensioned it on the tarp guy out. That seems to have solved several of the problems of how the "lay" is interfered with, more so than the normal HH elastic tie outs did. I will later try it attached to the UC and see if that works even better.

The camp pic is on Sterling, down some off the summit.
The water at Sterling is a trickle (.4 miles down).
I used my DIY BlackCat tarp and it worked nicely.
I used my DYI overquilts, one as a cover, the other in a stuff sack as a pillow.
*I was expecting much cooler temperatures and a little disappointed I
didn't get a real 'test' of how low I could go with my current set-up.

The view is from the fire tower on Sterling.
My camp should have been kept neater.
A lesson--don't wash everything, leave hanging for the night and then have
fog come in and soak all your clothes. Not a good way to start the
Any thoughts on how to get a decent angle on the underpad?
