For anyone who has ever camped out in Florida’s Everglades or Washington State’s Mosquito Lake, the value of this netted cocoon hammock will be immediately clear. Not only will the hammock lift you off the ground for sleep -- you can position it very far off the ground if you fear cougars and bears -- it has a fine mesh canopy that protects you from insects and other outdoor pests.

The netting of the netted cocoon hammock lets the breezes in without also letting in spiders, ticks and mosquitoes. There’s enough room inside to move around. If you’re geek camping, you can read your Kindle and if you’re roughing it, there’s room for a paper-paged book. Two zippers make getting in and out of the netted cocoon hammock easy to orchestrate. There are even pockets inside the canopy so you can stash whatever must-haves you’ve brought along. The tough parachute nylon is triple-stitched and rated for 400 pounds of support, so most folks can share their comfy cocoon with a friend.
