    if so it may not be the best idea ..you want the hamock to breathe ..

    just some food for thought
    Some people have found a waterproof non breathable hammcok to be a bit sweaty, but I can only speak from personal experience-I've spent many nights in waterproof non-breathable hammock, and have not had sweat problem. It seems to suit some people better than others, thats all I can put it down to. The waterproofing does add weight though.
