    Yup, I've got one. It works very well, but it weighs 20 oz. including stuff sack. On a different thread, someone posted about using mesh found at joann fabrics for a bugnet sock. Well, I just got back from there and found some of this material at a dollar a yard! It's 100% polyester, and very light. 900 holes per square inch (yes, I counted.) It's a bit stretchy, and very soft. I'll be making a bugnet out of this stuff soon.

    I just weighed this stuff. It comes in at about 1.4 oz/sq. yd. Not the lightest bugnet material, but by far the cheapest.

I'd also say to get a different tarp with better coverage such as a JRB 11 x 10 cat tarp, Speer Winter Tarp, MacCat Deluxe, etc. But the hammock itslef is good. Go with it.
