      You're right in that there needs to be a way to differentiate between them.
      Clarks, for example, are Jungle Hammocks - they follow the model of
      stretching a flat bed. Hennessy Hammocks are actually Mayan Hammocks - they
      follow the model of a loose, droopy bed. Enclosure is less important than
      the sleeping style, IMO.
