      Thanks to everyone who responded to my post Pros and Cons. Here's a
      thought about hammocks and comfort. Men and women have been going to
      sea for years sleeping only in hammocks. Being a sailor I can tell you
      there is nothing like the gental swing of a hammock to put you to
      sleep. I'd rather be in a hammock at sea then in a bunk. But then again
      there are no bears and bugs at sea. But them again that's why I winter
      camp, no bears and no bugs. You guys convinced me that hammocks are the
      way to go. I'll be ordering my Clarks this week.

          That's certainly something I noticed when I switched to hammock camping...I seem to be doing a lot more jerry-rigging now that I have to mess with tarps and hammocks, just to make them work where I need them...and now that you mentioned it, I do recall seeing a picture of the speer hammock set up on the ground.

          However, what I probably see most clearly in my head is the claytor's ability to spread the bug netting out so that you're boxed in like a little tent-of-sorts. The only other hammock that I've seen this design on (aside from DIY clones) is the DD hammock sold out of the UK. I have to wonder, too, if you can get more room with a hammock that can lay completely flat on the ground versus a hammock that has a couple of knots at either end, or zip ties, and which won't lay flat. Anyone ever have an issue with not getting enough interior room when pitching knotted-end hammocks on the ground? I've only tried it on the claytor so far, so I have no clue.
