    i own an older version of this hammock. i love it. i have about 5-6 different hammocks and this one is by far my favorite. reasoning is because of the design one only needs to add an insulated sleeping pad (note it has to fit and has to have longitudinal tubes) and there is then no need for an under quilt on colder days. with an inflated pad you get a really flat lay. only negative for me is that sometimes the bug netting makes me claustrophobic. no idea why – i think if the bug netting were a lighter color it would not affect me as much. like a nice light grey color. (instead of black).

      Glad to hear I’m not the only one. The bug netting in my Hennessey makes me claustrophobic, probably because it’s sewn in and doesn’t open.

        it only happens sometimes when i wake up from a deep sleep – i wake up totally claustrophobic, feeling like i cannot breathe. funny thing i have never in my life been claustrophobic before. i think if the bug net were white or grey i would be much happier. hopefully i will get used to it.

        I much prefer the zipper models for that reason.

    I love to use the first one. It is very good.

    This is my main hammock for camping as I love how flat the lay is with the pad. My only gripe is the bug net drooping right above my face. I’m sure that’s why they had to add the pull out on the right side of the netting. I attach a piece of shock cord and connect it to a tie out on my tarp.

    Would this hammock be a good first ever one to try out? The more I read the more confused I feel. It all seems so complicated. I will be trying it out camping/backpacking in Queensland Australia, which doesn’t get below 0 C in the areas I’m likely to go, and very very warm in summer. I have been in a very flimsy 2 man hiking tent this winter, which has kept me warm, but Iv been very lucky to not have any rain yet, which can be torrential at times. I like the idea of airflow during the summer, and up high away from snakes, but am beginning to think I might need to be a mathematician to get the hang just right, and then there is the tarp to worry about. Any suggestions on which one to start with?

      The Sky Bed is a great option to start. I wouldn’t hesitate OR worry too much. Hammocks are simple and I know sometimes it can seem complicated. I’m sorry for that — my whole mission is to make hammocks more approachable, yet the more stuff I throw on the site, the more complex it appears. Be sure to pick up my book where concepts are simple and illustrated clearly.
