    Hammock Bliss "sky tent"

    Just saw that Hammock Bliss has an interesting new product.

    Tarp and mosquito net in one.
    Not exactly lightweight (45 oz.)

    I love hammock innovations! My only worry about the photos presented is that it looks like the bug net is too close to the rain fly -- I'm afraid the bug netting would be drenched in any kind of rain. Either the tarp needs to be bigger, or the netting smaller -- too little allowance on the edges, maybe?

    That bug net looks HUGE!
    If you don't try due to fear of failure you've already failed due to fear.

    I see a major problem with it, other than the netting getting soaked in the rain. I can't reach the hot water on my stove for my morning hot chocolate. How is one suppose to have breakfast in their hammock in that thing? Silly Hammock Bliss people.

    After spring (after the rain), when the weather is getting warmer and you might want to sleep without a tarp... the mosquitoes have finished breeding their youngsters... I don't see a way of having the bugnet up and the tarp down.
