    Question which hammock should i buy?

    ok so i plan to buy a hammock to replace my bed in sleeping at night.
    i will use it exclusively in my room so it does not have to be weather resistant., i am 16 years old i weigh 60kg and i am pretty much 6ft tall. However i am not sure what to buy, so far i have seen these hammocks: http://www.seasidehammocks.com/COTTO...MMOCK-p31.html
    http://www.seasidehammocks.com/TOMMY...UEEN-p247.html
    http://www.myhammock.com/proddetail....MAYAN-S&cat=13
    http://www.myhammock.com/proddetail....ARBADOS&cat=10

    Which do you think is the best for me? what's the right material? and i would greatly appreciate it if you suggested another good hammock for my cause.

    i have decided to get a hammock because i have trouble sleeping at night due to comfort issues... thank you for help.

    I'm sure a mayan would be comfy. You could check out these guys too.

    Mayan or Brazilian. Bigger is better.

    There has been recent discovery that longer hammocks are more comfortable...not wider, Especially for longer guys such as yourself.

    I would suggest any BIAS They're very reasonably priced, and would great in a situation such as your describing. Then when you get ready to go hiking you can just un-hook it from stand and head out the door with it.

    Hope this helps.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    A Tenth Wonder XL is pretty cheap, although for dedicated indoor use, a cotton hammock would probably be better than a synthetic one
