    Yeah... I have tried other hammocks but I prefer simple solutions and sleep systems. The no net Claytor is cheap and one of the best hammocks out there. The Pea Pod looks like it is the most imaginative method of staying warm. I like the Warbonnet Traveler Hammock. I think that both the Claytor no net hammock and the Warbonnet Traveler Hammock are the two best hammocks which I use. They are both overlooked on these forums because they are so plain and unexciting hammocks. The same goes for the Pea Pod.. It too is often overlooked because of its boring simplicity.

    I'm not sure I could be happy with the 8 ft Expedition. But I would still love to try it with the Pea Pod, as the pod will completely enclose the end channels. My friend has an expedition and I MUST borrow it and see for myself.
    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. I have the Jungle. It was my first hammock, and will proly always be my go-to hammock when the skeeters are about.

    I also have a Traveler...much roomier and more comfortable.

    Have either of you guys tried the 'Pod on an ENO Double?

    I have tried the Pea Pod with an ENO a couple of times and it worked okay. But I find that the Pea Pod works the best with either the Clayor no net or the Warbonnet Traveler hammocks. The Eno Hammock was too floppy and wide.

    I just ordered the no net hammock------thanks for the advice! I figure even if it doesnt work out that great for me, its pretty cheap and the kids will have a ball with it---cant lose on that deal! Thanks!

    That is good.. At first I thought that the claytor no net was a too narrow hammock
    The Claytor no net hammocks are not glamorized because they are so plain and simple. They are as good as the other hammocks, they are just less expensive

    I spent several hours sleeping in my Claytor no net hammock and my Pea Pod. It takes awhile to get used to the lay of the hammock because it seems so long and narrow compared to my other hammocks. The hammock's long flat straight lay is identical to the lay in the Clarke Nx-200 or a bridge hammock. It is a very solid hammock. I think that its construction will out live and out last my other hammocks. The temperature got down to around 9 degrees and I stayed warm. Through the hood of the pea pod I was able to watch the moon and stars. The wind did not rob much heat from the pea pod and when I closed the pea pod totally up the temperature rose 10 more degrees. The Pea Pod and the Claytor no net hammock work beautifully together as a survival system. They are an ideal way to stay warm when the weather is cold and foul.
