    Love my $25 WalMart Hammock

    This thing is basically a ENO single nest clone. For $25 I had to pick it up to check out. It probably won't be going on any backpacking trips, but it will be great for day hikes and lounging around the yard, as I was doing with it here!

    I bought one a year or so ago, I agree, a good yard hammock. I can nap in it quite well, but I would hesitate to start out a whole night in it. A ridge line helped me to get consistent hangs. I did put a grandson in it for a couple nights on the trail. He had no problems.

    Funny you mention that. I actually ended up sleeping in that night. My son up top and me down low...it wasn't that comfortable all night. I made it, but I woke up a lot. A ridgeline would help.

    That was my first camping hammock. It worked out great for me. I've since passed it down to my daughter for when we go camping together.

    Did you add a mosquito net to it? If so, what did you use?

    I did. A friend gave me a military bug net designed for army cots. As the hammock isn't too long we were able to cut the ends and arrange it over the ridge line, letting it drape down over the hammock. It worked. Looked terrible, but worked. I will be making one just for that hammock, don't know just what though.

    Keep me updated if you would. I'm not much of a DIY guy, but a mosquito net surely can't be that hard.

    Snopes, bug nets aren't that difficult. I have no sewing skills whatsoever, but even I managed that with a sewing machine. Fleshlight, a structural ridgeline is a non weight-bearing line that runs across above your hammock, that way you get the same sag every time you hang it.
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    I thought structural ridgelines are weight bearing.
