    Question quick / waterproof / bug proof / warm - ?

    i'm in to hunting so i usually sleep in a cabin tent with a wood stove, which is real cozy.

    however, i need a hammock for when i'm in the forest on multi campsite trips that is quick / waterproof / bug proof / warm and fits me as i'm 6'5" tall.

    so i'm thinking the warbonnet might be just the ticket .... what do you think?

    thanks

    I think it will definitely meet the first three, but I'll let someone else chime in that is more your height. You'll need to buy/make an underquilt to get the warmth factor.

    You're gonna need a tarp for weatherproof.

    PaPa Smurf; here on the forums makes some hammocks that are 90" wide and 11' long and a variety of colors. You'll still need and under quilt and top quilt for warmth, and a tarp for rain.

    Tallest I have heard of in a BB was 6'7" and they said they were comfortable.

    Like the others have said you will still need to add insertion of some sort, and weather protection in the form of a tarp....lot and lots of options available for both.
