    If your not keen on spending the big bucks, then maybe a diy route might be a good solution.

    I thought Brandon had posted that he had a distributor in the UK now? I could be wrong, but someone could elaborate more...

    8yds 1.1oz (~38gm/M^2) ripstop nylon. Fold in half lengthwise, seam the loose ends together. (heat'n bond will work if you don't have a thread injector) whip the ends, install suspension.

    Double layer hammock done easy. The double layer will be very bug resistant, and you got a pad pocket to get you started on a budget.

    The bug net will probably require a thread injector, but it's not a complicated project. 6yds no-seeum netting, some shockcord, and a cordlock.

    I can't find the link on my phone so I hope someone will help me out, but Fronkey's bottomless bugnet is probably the easiest to make.

    It's for camping, 3 to 4 day trips.

    Just a heads up nickliv
    I fell for the shiny goodies that our American cousins have, but when I came to pick up my parcel her majesties customs charged me 20% vat plus 8 handling fee. With the international postage it cost more than the items I bought. A bitter pill to swallow mate
    Have a word with mat from uk hammocks he's trying to start a second hand section on his web site, might be the way to go?*
    And he has Dutch ware. the ultimate shiny goodies *

    If you liked the Frontline then that would be a good start. I have used a Frontline for the past year (just added a Clark which will see the most use for awhile at least.)
    I am 6' 5" / 190# and never had any problems with the Frontline. I don't hang mine tight like recommended but very loose instead - makes it roomier.
    Mosquito net works good and can be zipped back or the hammock just flipped over if it's not needed.
    Even the infamous suspension included is not that bad and can be easily changed to anything you want.
    The price for the Frontline lets you into hammocking for less than some of the other makers but a tarp and any modifications can add up pretty fast.
    Having said that, my only other experience has been in a Warbonnet and a Clark and both of them are luxurious in size compared to the Frontline.

    I have a Clark NX-250 and an ENO. The ENO is the more comfortable (and sooo much cheaper) of the 2. I use the Clark when I need to stay warm if that's a consideration for you. I know you can stay warm in any hammock, but the pockets and the enclosure of the Clark make it really easy. But if you are looking for comfort, quality, and economy...gonna be hard to beat the ENO line.
