    That pic really is exceedingly annoying. It might make me disable avatars...
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    I have finally given up using my Byer Moskito hammock...the zipper ripped out of the first one I had at the ends. I wrote Byer-of-Maine or the Army Navy online store where I purchased it, can't remember which, suggesting improvements to avoid this and they sent me a new one asking me to return the ripped one to them, which I did...I think that was pretty nice of them...I had more brains on the second and sewed a lock stitch at each zipper end about 1/2 inch from the actual end of the zipper which successfully prevented ripping. However, I sit in my hammock and cook...the bed of the Moskito distorts so badly after you've done this a few times that you can no longer lie in the middle of the hammock. Bye bye Byer...still, I would recommend this hammock to a first timer as it's inexpensive...it would be a bummer to drop lots of $$$ and find you hate sleeping in a hammock....

    I got one last year and was not impressed. The mosquito netting ripped near the zipper the first time I got in it and the strings tangle something fierce on the ends. It was not a good introduction to hammocking.
