    Hammock for kiddee

    I'm new, just got an eno dn a bit ago and my son is capitalizing on time in it. Finally I said MeMeMe

    He doesn't have a lot of money and the sewing machine isn't set up so I went searching on eBay.

    I was either going to upgrade or see what's there for cheap. If he decides he wants to sleep in the outdoors he can save up for something fancy.

    I found a hammock that looks like an eno knock-off. $20 shipped to our door. 150 kg limit so it should work. I was hoping to give him mine and order something from the members here. Wife said.... Nope.

    Anyone tried the one listed in the link?

    I have a question regarding a structural ridge line. Can I simply run some amsteel line between 2 trees and attach my hammock via 2 prussiks and carabiners?
    Once I make a bug net it should work with the ridge line I think.

    Thoughts?

    Got the hammock from china/eBay. Basically an eno knockoff but scary rope attachments. I retied the ends with amsteel and used welded d's so my son could attach webbing to it for his bedroom or trees. He's pretty impressed. Bright orange / yellow.
