    I HATE it when people use that one on me! (Because I use it on my clients!) I suppose it would be light and low cost.

    Just wanted to pop in and say thanks to SgtRock for putting this list together and for his article on the Nano 7 over at hikinghq. I was looking to dip my toe in the water with hammocks... the low price on the Grand Trunk Nano/UL and the light weight sold me on giving it a try, especially after I saw this post! Before I knew it I'd accumulated most of the gear SgtRock's list

    Thanks Rock and the rest. I'm still up in the air about what way to go. Everyone else seems to only want the Caddy or the Vette, but this thread is different and helpful. I'm 5'6" and about 165#. Since I can probably get by with, shorter and narrower, why not go lighter too! Especially when $$'s as well as grams are in question.

    It's Indiana for me, so I will need to add-on the bugnet. Hope I can still get Pappa to make me one when I'm ready.

    +a bunch on this one guys.

    I finally think I've got a plan.

    I didn't realize that a grand turk nano was so reasonable...however, in the spring I may definitely pick one up for my kids and I to try out and and use at least for around here. I am new to hangin' and just ordered everything I need to make my own gathered end hammock. I will be looking to order material for a tarp as soon as I have the money. Mine won't be the UL dream but it won't be the weight that I used to pack when I first starting hiking. However...I do like having plenty of room to spread out...especially after a 20 mile day...so I will trade a little weight for my "king sized" hammock. BTW, can someone please post the link of how to determine your hammock size...it's something like your height + two feet + something for your stitching + etc...I'm new around these here forum parts and I haven't been able to find the elusive "measurement formula creature" I hear so much talk about. thanks...TTYL

    Many of your big box sporting good stores will sell a hammock bliss style hammock for $20-25. Then all you need to hang is tree straps. If you replace the ropes and the heavy S hooks that come on them they are relatively light weight. Not as light as the Nano but still light compared to other hammocks.

    This one is $34 but it's similar to what I'm talking about. http://www.amazon.com/NEW-Ultralight.../dp/B002ZL0AUM

    That's incredible. Anybody know what the lightest commercially available hammock with integrated bug net is? I think it might be the Grand Trunk Ultralight Skeeter Beeter which is 19 oz without suspension (but, I believe, including ropes and S-hooks at the ends). If I'm wrong, correct me. It seems though that there'd be demand for one as light as the nano and with a bug net built in. I'd buy it...

    What am I missing? The Nano is listed at 7.4 oz on their site. Not 4.9 oz.

    the hennessy hyperlite is advertised at 13 & 7/8 oz. and 1oz. for the bug netting, that is just the hammock and no rainfly though

    The weight includes the (heavy) carabiners the Nano ships with. If you pull the carabiners out you'll get in the 4.9oz range
