Brought this with me to Costa Rica and it was great.

This hammock seals the netting which is great for not having any critters or bugs sneaking under.

Byer sells more expensive heavier hammocks worth a look if that's what you need.

I own two other hammocks, but got this one (actually got two) so that EVERY member of my family could sleep in a hammock. A couple of features that make this one inferior to the other hammocks I own. First, the ropes are too short. I've had to augment with extra rope (I'd recommend 100" on each side). Second, the parachute portion is just adequate for me and I'm only 5'8". Finally, the canopy system on this one is a bigger hassle than my other hammocks, which require no threading through loops.

I do find this hammock to flatten out better when you lay diagonally as recommended. My other hammocks, which feature a larger parachute, don't flatten as easily.

For the price, this is a great hammock.

Not a serious snow-crested mountain ascending type of hammock; no frills or accessories. It is a summer-time leisure trip hammock. But it is perfectly suited for weekend camp-outs, scouting, and one-time adventure trip. Costs $110 less than my Hennessy, but does 80% of what my Hennessy does.

The Moskito is a bit small as other reviewers have stated. I am just at 6 feet tall, and I can lay diagonally in comfort, however, the small size would eventually affect my comfort on a long, or nasty weather trip.

You will need to add your own tree ropes and rain fly, as it does not come with any. I used the rain fly from an old tent, and purchased some climbing carabiners,Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiner and climbing rope. You want high strength for hanging a hammock, because knots reduce rope strength by 50%. Using carabiners to attach the tree ropes to the hammock tie-loops prevents rain water from coming down the ropes and soaking the hammock. Carabiners are not essential, but makes things easier.

This hammock is designed to hang either way; upside down, with the bug netting underneath so you are uncovered, or with the bug netting over you. Unfortunately, the extra slack in the bug netting piles up on your face - really annoying. I will have to sew on a tab to tie the bug net back. The net does seal up really well, and it is a very fine mesh.

Material quality, and build quality are very good. Far better than I expected. If you are looking for a weekend hammock, or just want to try out hammock camping, buy this one to start out. It is built well enough for you to get a taste of the more expensive hammocks without breaking your wallet.

I just got back from a one day trip where i was testing some new gear. i'll be spending a week in Big Cypress preserve so i wanted to make sure everything worked fine. that being said, let me go into the details of the hammock.

1. set up is fairly easy although D-rings or carabiners and some cordage is necessary (the hammock does NOT come with any gear for set up)

2. it does not come with a rain fly. i knew this when i purchased it and its not a big deal if you buy an 8x10 tarp for $10 and set it up as a rain-fly.

3. the hammock itself was comfortable although the mosquito netting is quite loose and sometimes gets in your face. in my case it stuck to my head like Velcro (i shave my head bald).

4. and finally, the reason im giving the hammock 1 star! when i awoke after sleeping for the first night in the hammock, i noticed i had bites all over the backs of my legs. at home, my girlfriend noticed i had them on the backs of my arms. this morning when i shaved my head, i had bites on the back of my head. i didn't know what to think of it at first, i thought i had run into poison ivy and then it dawned on me. every piece of skin that was pressed against the hammock itself had bites on it! i know there were no mosquitoes inside with me and the mosquito netting worked as it should, however, the material the hammock itself is made of is thin enough for mosquitoes to bite through. i literally have over a hundred mosquito bites along the backs of my legs, arms and head!

Like the title says: If you are going into the heart of mosquito country, DO NOT BUY THIS HAMMOCK!

I spent a week at havasupai falls in the bottom of the Grand Canyon with this hammock. It made my trip! I loved the versatile usage with or with out the bug net. Others in my group had hammocks from other companies and woke up to mice in bed with them because their bug nets did not seal like this one. Both my boy friend and I bought this product and we slept better than at home. I'm a small female at 5 feet tall and 115 lbs, while he is over six feet and almost at the weight max for this hammock at 240 lbs and both of us had wonderful sleep. Highly recommended.

I bought this byer of maine- or amazonas (they are identical) hammock and I love it. I have been hamock camping for a few years now and this hammock has been slept in dozens of times. It is very lightweight and VERY durable.

My biggest fear was that it would be poorly made and rip- or fall apart- it does not! I have slept in this hammock- bug free - dozens of times- in all seasons.

If you are thinking of getting into hammock camping this is the best way to go- you have a reversible hammock so the bug net is an option- and it is great!

I have bought other amazonas-or byer- hammocks for friends since then and they all are holding up great!
