    Pls help recommend light hammock for tropical rain forest.

    I'm looking for a light compact hammock, with mosquito netting for bicycle touring. Good protection from rain storm would be a plus. I'd like to purchase commercially manufactured hammock, and suggestion from actual users would be highly appreciated.

    Possibly a Warbonnet Blackbird single layer (depending on your weight) with whoopie slings and a WB Edge tarp. You could go the cuben fiber route on the tarp to save about 6 ounces, that is, if you don't mind a $200+ bump in cost.

    What is your definition of commercially manufactured? You could be limiting your best options with that statement.

    Do you want all in one or tarp and hammock seperate... All in one tour really limited... If you care to seperate your options open up dramatically...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    I love the roominess of the Switchback.

    This is the single layer with net. There are different thicknessesof fabric and the option of double layer, useful as extra thickness against mosquito bites, option to insert a pad, and better protection if you need to go to ground.

    I don't have this model, but I do have a clark nx-250 and it is quality plus. I will never part with it.
