One more consideration is Papa Smurf's DangerBird with its' stowable attached bug net. It unzips and stuffs into a pouch at one end, and at the other end is a breathable cover that zips up to preserve warmth in cold climate.
You could get near the same with a Hennessy with 2QZQ #4 mod and storm cover.
Or you could do like many of us and one of each! Or DIY! The possibilities are staggering and the help you'll get here is amazing.
I have ENO Guardian for my DIY, HH Explorer with 2QZQ #4, and now DangerBird on order. I'm lucky.

In the summer, a built in bug net is great. In the winter, I love sleeping under the stars, with no bug net. So, maybe have 2 hammocks, for different seasons?

I'll throw a plug in here for both DeJohna's HUG, and DP's 1/2 length bug net.
The ultimate in weight savings for the gram weenies, and when used in conjunction with a light OQ and Permethrin treatment, great protection as well.
They are also without a doubt the easiest to enter and exit out of, than any other type of netting. IMO

Not to change the views of the masses but I have been using my Tulle bug sock for a few years now without a single rip/tear/whatnot! YMMV but I treat my UL and SUL gear with the respect that it should have, if you don't well then you get what you get.

This last weekend I made use of my Skeeter Beeter Pro and no mosquits bit me at all. Also have a GT Ultralight for no bug days. If you know where your going to and getting into having 2 choices is the way to go.
