    What is your question?

    The One-Link is comprised of the ENO hammock, DryFly tarp, Guardian bugnet, and SlapStraps. Of those components, the hammock and bugnet are very nice. The tarp is really too heavy for it's coverage (for hiking use, that is) and the SlapStraps are nylon (stretch too much).

    If you are looking for a 'whole system', the ENO style of hammock is good, but I would only get the hammock and bugnet. You can then add your own suspension and a different tarp. That will give you a lighter and more versatile setup. JMO.

    I agree with AS. The ENO is a nice hammock, especally in the summer. Although I would definatly find a lighter tarp and suspension, and possably make my own bug net, but the one they sell is still pretty nice.

    Not in its entirety. The Slap Straps are nylon, and hence, stretch like a mutha. Also the DryFly rain tarp has minimal coverage at best. I'd recommend going to some sort of other system like ring buckles or cinch buckles with polyester or polypro straps for suspension. I'd also say to get a different tarp with better coverage such as a JRB 11 x 10 cat tarp, Speer Winter Tarp, MacCat Deluxe, etc. But the hammock itslef is good. Go with it.

    hey guys, how does the suspension exit the guardian net? how big is the "hole" in the ends? does it seal with velcro or something, or is it just big enough for the rope to exit?

    It has a drawstring in a small channel to draw tight around the suspension rope/webbing/etc.

    I have a similar doublewide hammock I bought at Cabelas as a backup to my Claytor. I've been thinking of buying this bugnet to go with it. The netting is more expensive than what I paid for the hammock itself. What's your opinion of the netting and does anyone know of a less expensive alternative that still works fairly well?

    The Guardian Bugnet certainly is more expensive that it should be, IMO. That being said, it is quite a nice piece of gear. It deploys easily and quickly, and the vertical side zipper makes entry/exit painless. At 16oz it is heavier than a simpler solution, but at least 1/4 to 1/3 of that could be eliminated by removing the attached stuffsack and cinch strap and use a silnylon stuffsack instead.

    I'm not aware of any of the other HAAB-style hammock vendors selling a bugnet that is comparable. It should be pretty easy to make your own, though.
