    It doesn't and wouldn't bother me either way.

    Most of the trips I come back from has my kit reeking of smoke from the fire anyway. A fire will always smoke more than I ever can.

    +1 Same here. More often I'm just sitting, not laying down.

    Re: Do you smoke cigarettes in your hammock?

    Try a small bong instead.

    Three thorough washings --hot water with quality laundry detergent on two, and pine-oil soap on another, of both tarp and hammock, and then a few days of air, and it smelled clean. (I suspect netting captures and hold a lot of aroma, especially if you are smoking inside of it.)

    I didn't complain to seller about the condition, because he, as a smoker, probably camped with other smokers.
    You shouldn't have to ask how the hole was created if the seller knew how it happened. Seller should have disclosed that they smoked.

    I'm not a habitual smoker but I do enjoy my pipe some evenings. I don't see a problem with it as long as you're careful

    I don't smoke and I don't like smelling smoke (as a child I suffered from asthma attacks), but I'd buy a hammock from a smoker because washings would eventually cure it. Soak it in a bucket of suds for half a day, agitate it around every time you thought about it, rinse well and hang dry and leave out in the yard for a day or two... Were I a smoker I'd wash the hammock a time or three before selling it, though. That said, my hammock has smelled like a campfire many times and while it's not the same, it is smoke.

    I do enjoy an occaisional pipe, but I can't recall ever smoking one in the hammock. Usually it's a before bed watching the sun go down and making an offering ritual (not to mention keeping the mosquitoes at bay for a bit) before crawling into the hammock and the mosquito free bug net.
