    Comments about Byer The Moskito Hammock:

    Scouts slept out in the hammocks for several nights and had only good things to say about it. Easy set up and take-down and stowage. I haven't looked to see if the offer a double. If they do, I'll be ordering one!

      Comments about Byer The Moskito Hammock:

      I purchased this hammock several years ago but did not attempt to use it until this past weekend. Yes, it was easy to set up but, as soon as I had completed hanging it, I noticed a hole at each end of the zipper in the bug netting. As I was attempting to get into the hammock the bug netting continued to rip and now it is full of holes. I always try to purchase quality gear and, until now, I have never had a piece of gear fail on me as this hammock did. Fortunately, I was not a long way out in the woods.

      Comments about Byer The Moskito Hammock:

      We got this for my son who will be using it for Boy Scout camps. It appears to be sufficient for what he needs. However, there is already a rip in the mosquito netting around the edge of the interior pocket. I do not plan on returning it as we will just put some clear duct tape on it. Our next camp is in a couple of weeks so I can do an update then.

        Comments about Byer The Moskito Hammock:

        This is a very lightweight hammock that allows one to add their own lightweight hanging method in addition to having the option of using a tarp or not. I added a 9' non-stretch structural ridgeline to enable achievement of the recommended optimal hang droop, as this is key to being able to lie diagonally and flat in this hammock. It is short, and I purchased this for my 10 year old son, but I have tried it myself (5'6") and was able to get pretty comfortable. I left the clear plastic sleeves on so I could slide them over the strings when packing it up. This helps to avoid tangled lines. The attached stuff sack is handy, and I am able to get the hammock and all hanging devices into the one sack, which makes for a very small and compact bundle.

        Comments about Byer The Moskito Hammock:

        Bug netting is complete manure! First night I used the product, the net ripped from it's attachment points, and then all along the non-zippered side. Thank God I had the wit to simply flip it over; you can use the other side if you don't want to use the netting. The attachment point lines tend to get twisted very easily, so does the ridgeline. I think perhaps better material selection might help this.
        I bought this hammock when I decided I wanted to try tree hugging. Not knowing what it was all about, I decided to get this one over a more expensive hammock & net setup. Took it out one afternoon and practised setting it up, everything went smooth, other than the fact that the ridgeline twists into a million knots if you look at it wrong! Get her out on the trail, and what do you know, the netting rips! I am 5'9", 130 btw, so I don't think that was a factor. Perhaps it was a fluke, who knows. I have used the hammock twice since on 2-4 night trips, and no problems. I continue to use it upside down and use an additional net from another company.

        I would recommend this to someone experimenting with hammocking, or a cheapo like me! But I would warn that you really are getting what you pay for in terms of quality.

            This hammock does not hold up. I haven't even had it out on a camping trip yet and the zipper is broken, there are too many cords, it is not easy to set up.

                Comments about Byer The Moskito Hammock:

                After reading some of the comments on this product I decided to write my own. I'd always used a hammock for lounging around the campsite on BWCAW trips. Once I tried actually sleeping in my first Byer Hammock I'll never go back to sleeping on the ground! You really need to sleep diagonally in these to get a flatter sleep. You don't want to sleep like a banana all night. By lying diagonally you flatten out your sleeping posture into a much more comfortable position. Bug netting works great. Yes, you may need a rain-fly, but what "tent" doesn't. I use an oversized Poncho and it works fine. You could easily spend 2-3 times more and not achieve a better nights sleep than with the Moskito Hammock! Also, invest in their easy adjust ropes, they make set-up a breeze and still fit in the stuff sack with the Hammock.

                        I would say the hammock is included as they talk about "The bed is made of extremely durable and strong parachute nylon." The only things that it looks like you would need to add is some sort of means to attach it to trees/posts (rope, slap straps, carabiners) and a rain fly. Looks good for the price, to me.
