    Lightweight netted hammocks?

    As summer rolls round again I find myself having to come up against mosquitos again! My no-net DIY rig is starting to show wear (and more than a few burn holes) so my previous idea of making my own net doesn't appeal to me as much as picking up something new.

    I'd really like a 1.1oz WBBB but I'd like to know what my other options are. I used to have a DD frontline but it was a monster in size and weight.

    So what would you guys recommend for a lightweight gathered end hammock, single layer, and preferably with the option to buy without suspension?

    Tree to Tree Trail Gear Light Hiker is my light weight netted hammock of choice. Just another option to consider.

    Remove the rope, and very well made indeed Clark Ultralite weighs no more than 700g /22oz for double sided entry. Whether you like the Clark netting depends on how small the critters are you wish to exclude. Clark uses a very fine mesh nylon.
