    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

    That's interesting about the net, but it does make sense. It basically makes a double wall tent that way.

    Never really thought of my netting as a breathable weathersock, but it makes sense.

    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.
