5 Reasons Why I Love My Hammock with Mosquito Net

I purchased this camping hammock with mosquito net to take on road trips as well as use at home in my backyard. It’s very similar to the Skeeter Beeter Camping Hammock, but it costs less.

Hammock with Mosquito Net Keeps Bugs and Nets Out

I thought that I was getting a great deal when I bought it because the heavy-duty tree straps come with the package. Therefore, I could save myself an extra $12-15. However, it turned out that I like the hammock even more than I predicted. Here’s why:

1. It’s Conveniently Small, Compact and Lightweight.

First of all, the hammock arrives in it’s own carrying bag that holds all of the straps, ropes, carabiners and hammock itself. In total it only weighs about 2.5 lbs. In addition, it packs up small, so it’s easy to take anywhere without taking up lots of space.

2. It Takes 2 Minutes to Set Up.

Secondly, it’s super easy to set up. The hammock and mosquito net are one piece, and the carabiners come attached, so all you need to to is find 2 trees and secure the tree straps. It takes about 2 minutes.

3. It Breathes.

Third, I found the lightweight parachute fabric to “breath” much better than my other hammock. Therefore, it doesn’t make you overheat if you are sleeping outside on a warm evening. I think it’s extremely comfortable.

4. The Nylon Dries Super Quick.

Fourth, the fabric dries quickly. I forgot that parachute fabric has this great advantage. I accidentally spilled a bunch of water on the hammock while it was packed in its sack. When I hung the hammock up to dry, it aired out quickly.

5. I Love the Tree Straps.

Fifth, the tree straps actually are one of my favorite features of this package. They each come with 14 “loops”, which make it really easy to hang your hammock from various distances (up to about 20 feet!).

How Strong is the Parachute Fabric?

By the way, the parachute fabric is deceptively strong. We typically find this nylon material in tents, hammocks, backpacks and other rugged outdoor gear. Therefore, it stands up well in all sorts of weather, moisture, etc..

By the way, did you know that nylon is more weather resistant and durable than polyester?

Nylon specifically provides more stretchability and is mildew resistant. The “T” in 210T stands for thread count. The higher the number, the stronger and thicker the material.

How to Choose a Sleeping Hammock

First of all, decide on the size hammock you want. For example, do you want a compact single-size hammock, double width or an extra large family size version?

By the way, many people find that a double wide hammock works especially well for sleeping since it provides more space and support. In addition, larger size hammocks enable you to use them both lengthwise (as a bed) and sideways (as a chair).

Second, consider the look and feel that you want. For instance, do you like fringe, lots of colors or a fabric that is easy to clean?

Third, think about the fabric. Cotton fabrics are very comfortable but tend to be warm in the summer time. Conversely, nylon camping hammocks are very lightweight and breathable. In addition, outdoor material like Sunbrella will perform better outdoors than other less durable materials.

Fourth, do you need a stand or will you hang your hammock from 2 trees or using hooks? If you want a stand, usually package deals can save you money.
