    Yukon Outfitters Mosquito Net Hammock via Woot

    Yukon Outfitters Hammocks

    www.yukon-outfitters.com (at the time of this review, the web site was labeled as being a beta version and was lacking various details of the gear being offered)

    Hammock with mosquito net

    Purchased from Woot

    From Woot.....

    Hammock with Mosquito Net
    The Yukon Outfitters*Hammock’s integrated mosquito net will keep you comfortable in the great outdoors. If the coast is clear and you don’t need the mosquito netting, just flip the hammock over and use as a normal hammock. Yukon Outfitters hammocks are made for use on the trail, tailgating, camping, or at home.*
    • 8'9" Long*x 4'8" Wide*
    • Integrated mosquito net to keep little critters away
    • High strength parachute nylon
    • Double zippers system for easy access
    • Two interior storage pockets for storing small items
    • Lightweight and quick drying
    • 275 pound weight capacity
    • Triple stitched at weight bearing points
    • Attached stuff sack for easy storage
    • Mildew resistant
    • Quick-dry nylon


    Hammock*with Mosquito Net
    • Dimensions......... 8'9" L x 4'8" W
    • Weight Capacity...275 lbs.
    • Weight..................19.5 oz.
    • Country of Origin:*China
    • In the box:
    • Yukon Outfitters Nylon Parachute Hammock
    • Hanging Ropes

    My observations.....

    Price about $30 with shipping on Woot...suggested sell price on Yukon Outfitters web site is $89.99. Tag on the hammock said $69.99.

    Single layer.

    Weight 1 lb 7.2 (23.2) ounces or 658 grams (this is the weight of the hammock and all included gear in the stuff sack taken just after I took it out of the shipping box).

    Weight of just hammock with attached steel biners 1 lb 5.6 ounces or 643 grams.

    Steel Biners 3.6 ounces or 103 grams

    Line with cord locks 1.4 ouces or 40 grams ( for hanging net )

    So claimed weight of 19.5 ounces for the hammock is about right

    Very over sized ( nylon ? ) cord looped thru end channels and larks headed to steel biners.

    Color looks like a military olive drab green

    Feels similar to a Grand Trunk Double Parachute hammock, maybe a little courser. If you live in skeeter country, you will want to treat this hammock with Permethrin as it will be real easy for the skeeters to bite thru this fabric..

    Feels heavy for its size.

    Has attached stuff sack.

    Quality of sewing is good ( much better than the sewing on my DIY hammocks )

    Removing the Rope and binners removes 5.3 ounces

    Does not include straps or rope to hang hammock. Does come with line to suspend the mosquito net away from hammock. Pretty much what one would expect to get for a hammock at this price point.

    Comes with a full page (no pictures) of instructions on how to hang and care for the hammock. While not great, at least it came with some instructions and they are well written which I find unusual for an item coming from China.. Still lacking but enough to get one started and into trouble,

    I did set up the hammock for a few minutes and got inside. I did not get any pictures as it started to rain.

    I am 6ft 2 and 280 lbs so that puts me a 5 pounds over the recommended weight limit.

    The hammock held me just fine. However I found the hammock to be too small for me. Estimate it would fit some one about 5ft 6 and under just fine.

    I used one biner to hold the netting away from the hammock and while I was not expecting it work, the one biner did a great job of holding the netting away from me.

    There are 2 small built in mesh storage pockets ( 5” wide by 5.5” tall) attached to the netting , one per side.

    If you are looking for a starter hammock with a net for yourself or a child then I think its a no brainer, order one, at $30 you can't go wrong.

    The included instructions ( the spelling mistakes ect are whats on the sheet)

    KEY FEATURES:

    • Lightweight and quick drying
    • High strength parachute nylon
    • 275lb weight capacity

    INTRODUCTION:
    Congratulations on the purchase of your new Yukon Outfitters Mosquito Hammock! The hammock’s integrated mosquito net will keep you comfortable in the great outdoors. If the coast is clear and you don't need the mosquito netting, just flip the hammock over and use as a normal hammock. Yukon Outfitters hammocks are made for use on the trail, tailgating, camping, or at home.

    HANGING METHOD:

    Hammock — Make sure your hammock is tethered to stable and safe location able to hold the intended weight, which is NOT TO EXCEED 275 lbs. Each end of the hammock is a loop of rope with hook attached. Make sure hook is properly installed and tight screwed shut prior to each use. The loop of rope is 14 inches long. The hook allows for easy attachment to your chosen anchor/hanging method.

    Mosquito Net — Thread provided black bungee cord through two loops at top of mosquito netting, around 1st attachment point, back through remaining two loops, around 2nd attachment point, and back to starting point. Threaded cord ends through supplied cord locks, tightened and adjust to achieve desired net position.

    HAMMOCK CARE:
    1. Store hammock in a cool dry place, when not being used.
    2. Always make sure hammock is completely dry before storing. .
    3. Do not machine wash, machine dry or iron hammock.
    4. Clean hammock using a gentle soap solution and wash by hand.
    5. Line dry.

    SAFETY FIRST: USE WITH CAUTION
    1. Hammocks are not a toy and are intended for adult use only.
    2. An improperly hung hammock is a safety risk. End user is responsible for insuring proper installation and use. Always ancho hammock to strong and stable structures.
    3. Angle of the hammock should not exceed 25 degrees when in use.
    4. Always distribute weight evenly across the hammock surface area. Excess weight placed in a small area could damage the hammock and become a safety risk.
    5. Enter the fabric seating area carefully to avoid flips or falls.
    6. After use, store hammock properly in attached stuff sack to prevent weather damage. Inspect the hammock for strength and sturdiness prior to each use.
    7. Always keep hammock away from high temperature or open flames.

    *ProIonged exposure to weather conditions including snow, rain and humidity are not covered under the warranty; nor is damage caused by normal wear, mildew, and improper care including storage, maintenance, installation or animals.

    Good review. Thanks for the effort.
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Good review. I haven't got around to making a video review of this model yet. I did one on the double.

    Good review. I really liked the break down of the weights. Nice job

    Changed out the thick (nylon ?) rope and heavy steel biners with 7/64' Blue Amsteel and a pair of Ready Lift cinch buckles.

    Took the weight from 1 lb 7.2 ounces to 1 lb 2.9 ounces, a savings of about 4 ounces.

    I could probably reduce the weight another .5 ounces if I removed the stuff sack attached to the hammock but I am not that big of a gram weinnie and it makes a nice extra storage pocket for when you are hanging.

    thanks for the reviews.
    I did the same thing - remove the nylone rope and steel biners.
    Changed the rope out for amsteel.

    Nice to know the weight.

    Nice to know the weight.
    I always like to weigh stuff before and after I mod it to see if I added or lost weight in the process and if so, how much. Gives you a feel for future mods if the the change is worth doing or not.
