    I got a Skeeter Beeter (not the Pro) from Amazon for $42.04, with free shipping. I've been pleased with the quality so far (it's still relatively new).

    thanks everyone, Im gonna try out the bliss no see um. seems very few people here use the Bliss company. wondering if its because Bliss is not a member here or members have had issues with the products ( hope not, I ordered one ) I'll post any info that might be helpful when I get it out and about. the true test is if my wife likes it enough, I'll get my WBBB back from her.
    Would of got the Grand Trunk UL SB but I think this winter I'll try my first hand at sewing my G.T. camo UL and mod it with a zip no see um net. Everyone has inspired me into the DIY. Its not always cheaper but at least you can say "I made this"
    Thanks again.

    I reckon youll be happy with the bliss. All in all its a good hammock. I have no problem recomending it. They are availble here in Australia and a few of my mates have gone with them and have been happy as well. The fella who runs Bliss seems like a nice fella too. Hes got some of my pics of it up on his website.

    First post here. I just got a bliss no see um today at Sportsman Warehouse (local on my way home ) for $45. I just hung it in my front yard between 2 trees 2 see how it felt (first hammock like this). I tied the netting to the trees also to keep it up. but when i get in the center is up good, but when the hammock cacoons around me the netting gets real close to my face. How do you spread it out some? Do i need to sew some loops in the middle of it half way down and tie it out? Other than that it seemed very comfortable.

    Thanks.
    The bug net is dark grey. I got my SBPro for fathers day. It had double zippers on one side (hope that makes sense). It is very comfy, But I sink in far (I'm a big guy) and I can't see out. Eventhough, it has elastic tabs for the bug net I still managed to rip it. If I could do it over again, I would have used shock cord for the ridgeline for more give. The bug net is more like panty hose material than like the bug net on my tent and seems more fragile.

    I have a SB Pro and find that it is good to sleep in but really way too large on the sides - I always feel taco'ed.

    Great for sleepin', not great for star watchin'.

    Right on. Also with the gauze like netting isn't so easy to see stars anyways.

    with the sb pro you can always flip the whole hammock over and use the back as a regular hammock = bright stars.

    I own two bliss hammocks and a bliss skytent. Both hammocks are very comfortable. I think you will enjoy it.
