    Looks kind of chinchy, but might be a good backyard snooze setup.

    Give it a go, if it works for you, that's all that matters!

    It's a good hammock. I have the exact one, and my mom has slept in it twice on our overnights. It isn't noseum, just mosquito netting though. One change we did make was put grommets in the pockets of the netting where the little cord goes in. That way we could run a ridgeline from the tree, through one gromet then out the other into the other tree. That way she could hang stuff up, and keep the net off of her better. If that didn't make sense, the little ropes that tie the netting up go into little velcro pockets on the netting for storage. The velcro closes after the ridgeline is passed through so the netting isn't severely compromised, and the rope is on the inside of the netting. Another modification we made was to cut the hanging ropes down and tie a loop in them. Then we attached carabiners and used ENO slpa straps. The ropes were too much of a pain to adjust and get situated for comfort. They also tend to slip a little on wide trees or long spans where you can't wrap them around a couple of times. Simple modifications that took all of 30 minutes. It is wider than my ENO singlenest, so it is easier to lie at an angle, or for larger people. I really can't think of anything bad about the hammock. Maybe that if you want to bring a tarp low on the hammock for inclimate weather, you would have to hang the netting lower. This would put it in your face if you can't find a way to bunch it up somewhere.

    Just saw that it is the no-see-um version. Everything still applies, just ignore what I said about it just being for mosquitos.

    I have had one of their open models for several years, and it is by far the most comfortable of all my hammocks. I think I may try this one and run a cord thru the netting and attach to the ends for a structural ridge line.
