    Hello from Lawrenceville, GA!

    Hello everyone, just joining up after spending some time reading here in the past. I've got a hammock my friend made for me of silnylon with straps built in and have just recently gotten back into wanting to be outdoors more. Been camping a good bit lately, but never spent the night in the hammock yet. I think the wife and I will be doing that next month though. Looking forward to reading and learning more from y'all!

    welcome neighbor and to the madness!! a hammock made out of silnylon will not breath.(if you are sure is silnylon, its waterproof) shall we say condensation issues.

    This is something I will certainly pay attention to. Should only take one cool night to find out. If I have issues, it'll obviously have to be dealt with...guess that'll be my excuse to buy another hammock.

    You need an EXCUSE to have more than one?!?! I thought it was a REQUIREMENT!

    You raise a very valid point... So much for pitching this to my wife as cheaper than tent camping. LOL
