    WTB Kids hammock setup

    I"m looking for a good setup for my 11 year old son. He is 11 years old and not very gentle on anything, also this setup will see use as a loaner to other hiking buddies. I need at minimum a hammock with complete suspension and any other accessories that you might have like underquilts, bug netting, hammock socks. And since this is all an extra setup I can't spend a ton of money.

    I'd look at the hennessy Scout.

    I have a couple of barely used Hennessy Scouts. The only time the were used was by my friend's son's on a two-day backpacking trip (green ones on left in linked pic). Both are in perfect condition and I don't really have a need for them. Included are bottom entry Scout, original rope suspension, tarp and tree huggers.

    Willing to sell for $75 each. PM me if you're interested.
