I bought my first one over 2 years ago and let my tentless friend borrow it, he is a farm boy and at least 6'4" and 180lbs. He loved it, said he was going to get one soon after.I can share it with my husband, our combined weight only being 260 and still be comfortable- the hammock is double wide! Since then I bought one for my husband and another just as a spare.
The difference between the models is the quality of the fabric, the pros are silky and the regular is not silky. Why does this matter? When you are sleeping in this huge hammock and you want to pull yourself up higher on the hammock to get your feet to touch the ground first (instead of your butt), the silky fabric makes this move easy, nothing catches. The silky fabric also does not collect lint or pet hair- just based on the texture. The netting is no-seeum mesh and allows for great views. To use it without, don't attach the elastic cord and just zip it all the way shut, flip you hammock over to its upside down position and sit. This tensions the netting tight against the silky nylon part of the hammock.
It's easy to set up and take down. You just keep it in its sack that is sewn onto it, hang one of the hooks on your rope, then unroll out the rest of the hammock. It never needs to touch the ground. The whole thing packs to the size of a bicycle helmet, weighs about 2lbs. Great for bicycle or kayak camping. I recommend getting the Hammock Camping book by Ed Speer- it's just a really great, informative read on the Leave No Trace aspect of hammock camping. You won't be disappointed.
So you DON'T need any gear to hang this thing.
Regarding the mosquito net, just flip the hammock over and there's no net.
I've found the hammock to be quite durable, though a bit bigger than I expected (about the size of a folded sweatshirt, if that helps--certainly not as little as a "football," "grapefruit," or any of the other dimensions offered by other manufacturers).
I'd definitely recommend it!
1) I live in West Tennessee near the Mississippi River. I often camp in warm, southern climates. Bug protection is a MUST.
2) The Grand Trunk Skeeter Beater Pro is an all-in-one system, coming with a built-in bug net. It also has its own strap system in the pack. It comes with strong carabiners. In other words, this bag gets you EVERYTHING YOU NEED except rain protection. Another cord and a tarp will take care of that. The ENO doesn't even come with straps. Add $20. It has no bug net. Add $50. To get to the same place (a hammock, straps and a bug net), the difference is $120 vs. $70.
3) For relaxing in the yard, flip the Grand Trunk over. The mosquito net is out of the way on the bottom. Plus, because it is integrated, you won't be removing it, losing it, etc. Some folks like buying their stuff a piece at a time and having the ability to separate (and replace) specific pieces. This one is more for folks who want an integrated system that doesn't break down in pieces that could get lost. For me, having it all together in one system is great.
4) I've mentioned price. It merits mentioning again. You get: modest, but functional tree straps; carabiners; the hammock with integrated bug screen (that has its own cords). And it all stuffs into its own bag that is suspended below the hammock for storage of personal items while you're in it.
That's why I got it. There's nothing to add except rain protection.Read more ›
I love it!
It is very roomy and it is sturdy. Plenty of room for two. It's held close to 400 pounds.
Setup is very easy.
The included suspension paracord that is included is wholly inadequate. It is way too short and I don't trust it not to break. I would suggest getting some tree straps or slings at the same time as you order the hammock. I bought Kammok Python straps. They are great, but overpriced, you can find something just as good more reasonably priced with a quick search.
The bug mesh is attached to the hammock. If you don't want to use the bug net you can flip the hammock over. The bug mesh zipper covers enough of the length of the hammock to make it really easy to get in and out of. The mesh is top notch and it keeps the bugs out. The bug mesh is a little larger than I would like. It tends to droop overhead. You can jigger with the suspension .... but you will likely want to modify it with ties or a solid ridgeline.
When it gets cold you of course need to have a mat underneath you inside the hammock. You may be surprised to know that you are going to want to carry that pad on all but the warmest of excursions. If it gets down to 40 degrees you'd freeze your butt off in a 15 degree bag. It has to do with the cradle of the hammock causing the filler in your sleeping bag to compress. There is a hammocking term to describe this; CBS. It stands for Cold Butt Syndrome. It is a real thing, so you can google it and learn more about how people deal with it. Mattress and underquilt seem to be the two most popular methods.
I used this hammock on a night where the temp dipped into the 10s. I slept on a Neo-Air in a 15 degree Marmot Sawtooth bag.Read more ›
