I've camped in one of those before. Look in the photos in the 'Brian Neeley's gear' folder. No bug net and not a single bug bite (This was also at the peak of the cicidas during the 17 year cycle).

I sleep on my stomach at home in bed. I sleep strictly on my back in a hammock. You may too.

That's the hammock I finally got. I can't comment on any of the others, but I do love my Hennessy. I can't say much on 4 season camping either. I know you can be froze out of a hammock if you don't have proper insulation. If I could afford it, I would buy a Jacks R Better (no experience with any underquilts, but they (JRB) do seem to have a quality product, and some on this list swear by them).
Just my $.02
