    Want: Inexpensive hammock and tarp

    I want a double layer hammock, with attached bug net, and tarp. I do not have much money since I am a student. Thanks.

    You can make a DIY Hammock for about 20$, a tarp can be a blue poly one or maybe a speer DIY?

    this is a good starter hammock skeeter beeter pro although it does not have a double layer like you mentioned, it is still workable. I'm guessing you want double layer for pad usage?

    For a tarp I recommend the Etowah 8 X 10 from here. It's a little on the heavy side, but it has tabs instead of grommets and they have it in CAMO and it is super cheap they have great customer service

    Check out the GT ABES at Campmor.com. It is a Skeeter Beeter Pro hammock and Funky Forest tar[ combo. They have them in stock for $110 + shipping. My daughter, ex-GF and her daughter all have one and like them alot. Only problem is it is not double layered, but it will get you started for a good price.

    Highly recommend Hammock Bliss. Not only is it huge, but its very light weight. The netting is attached, and it can be flipped with the net down for a double layer system in the winter. Make sure you shop around, since you can get them cheaper elsewhere.

    As far as a tarp, you cant beat the Etowa's quality for the price.

    I would keep an eye out for Ambient Outdoors to get some more 12'x9'6" Chinook tarps in stock.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Check out the Jungle Hammock over at http://www.mosquitohammock.com/

    It is dual layer, has attached bug net, comes with a large diamond shaped camo tarp and includes free world wide shipping (not very speedy). It lists for $150 US.

    If you would give us your budget, better suggestions could be made for you. There is also the Newbie Hammock Setup thread that will show you how to get started for not much money.

    Cheers

    Brian
