I have loved hammocks all my life, once they were super packable, I was in. Bring it to the park, camp & backyard BUT I never got to be in it all day/night. I hated thinking of having my sleep disturbed at night or waking to find my body was the smorgasbord for the night crawlers & flyers. Having the net around my hammock was so amazing. I never once worried about checking my sleeping bag, or the closures or having my face mostly covered. Easy to put up, to get in and out of & easiest to take down and put away. LOVE THIS PURCHASE! Hammock sleeper for life.
