    I came up with my Stretch-Side concept to address the very problem you are having. You can mod existing netless hammocks or make one from scratch.

    This bears repeating...nets are hot, and noseeum netting is really hot. Going topless on a warm summer night with a bit of breeze is simply glorious.
