Hmm. sounds like I might try that Traveler with separate netting. Thanks for the info, guys!
One option no one has mentioned,
If you get a hammock with integral netting like the Byer Mosquito Traveler, and you don't want to use the netting, just turn the hammock over and let the netting hang underneath you.
I wouldn't go into the boundary waters without some form of no-see-um proof netting.
oh, i think having a net really helps keep condensation of your sleeping bag in colder weather especially, i know on winter nights i've gone with a no-net i've woken up with frost al over my bag, and i haven't really noticed this with the net, my bag seems to stay pretty dry

Never really thought of my netting as a breathable weathersock, but it makes sense.
Ambulo tua ambulo.
I've used a Mosquito Hammock, with intergral net and a Warbonnet Traveler with the separate net. My biggest problem with the Mosquito Hammock was anything I put in the pocket wound up underneath me and a little bit uncomfortable. With the ridge line on the Traveler, problem solved. The net definately helps keep condensation down and traps a little bit of heat in cooler weather.
