    Bayer hammock at http://www.byerofmaine.com/amazonas-traveller.htm

    Pretty stretcy, but light & cheep. Well made for what you pay for it!

    Bug netting included.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Speer Hammock and SPE

    I have an 8.5 Speer (for people over 6 ') available. It's had 25/30 nights use and is still in good serviceable condition. The webbing has been modified (due to frequent experimentation) to include a short loop of cord about 8" up from the hammock attached to the longer webbing. The loop is used as an anchor point for the included ridge line. It's not pretty but has held up for many nights. And it has the netting. $45 plus shipping.

    Also, a Speer SPE 4 x 4 (8 wings) for $35 plus shipping that includes 17 various thickness foam inserts.
