    6ft 3, 220lbs 1st time hammocker.

    I had a short swing in a dd frontline last weekend, and rather liked it. I'm not keen on spending megabucks, are there any alternatives I've missed? Oh, I'm in the UK btw. Cheers

    I'm 6'3 and I found the DD nice until i went into a 10' hammock. The gain of comfort was such that I went straight on to a 11'.

    Oh, I forgot, I'm in Scotland, so it needs to be properly, and I mean PROPERLY bug proof.

    UK Hammocks sells models with netting. Since they are very close to the WBBB, they should perform as well, and they are already in the UK, so shipping is easier!

    It's not the boulders that throw us off balance, it's the pebbles beneath our feet

    I am 6'5" and started at 270 (loosing weight, I am now down to 228 ) and I use the ENO Double Nest with their Guardian bug net. Never had a problem with my weight or height and the Guardian has enough material (too much really) to keep all the bugs out.

    I like the Double Nest because it allows my tall frame to sleep diagonally.

    Are you looking for a hammock to camp in, relax in, or sleep in?
