One thing that sucks about camping...no, the outdoors...no, life...is bugs. Really all bugs, but mostly mosquitoes and those godforsaken devil's minions of the insect world, no-see-ums. Those F'ers. They skulk around the entire state of Florida completely invisible until it's time to sink their saber teeth into my neck or arm or back side of the knee or all three simultaneously, thereby ruining my Spring Break co-ed macking attempts by making it appear as if I have Tourette's.

Anyway, here's a hammock that's meant to stop them. And all other bugs, including mosquitoes, flies, bees, spiders, and probably snakes too. The bug-free hammock from Hammock Bliss is compact and lightweight at 9" x 10" packed and only 25 ounces, yet large and sturdy enough to support up to 350 pounds. Set up for the night it provides a bed space of 9'10" long x 4'9" wide (larger than a double mattress). The swinger also includes its own suspension system, consisting of 100" of 6mm climbing rope sewn into each end.

Above the sleeping nylon is a complete nylon mosquito net supported by another 100" of attached cord that keeps it suspended and the hammock suitably vented.
