Re: Byer hammocks?
I had a Byer Mosquito Hammock at one time. At that time it had a
mosquito net, not no-see-um netting. The many lines at the end of
the fabric can be problematic in that they are easy to tangle and not
so easy to untangle. I did notice that it was not possible to get
a 'flat lay' like you can with a Hennessy Hammock or a Speer Hammock
when you lay at a slight diagonal because of the construction
technique they used.

the lines of his homemade hammock (similar construction). When he
packed it, the tubes slid down over the lines and kept them from
Seems like a worthy addition for about .5oz.
- I have a Byer Traveller hammock, and like it quite a lot. I just rigged a
piece of bug netting ala Risk's quarter weight hammock, and it worked fine.
After I attached the webbing, I haven't had any problems with the lines
tangling at all -- I think the problems arise when the hanging loops are
free to slip under and through the lines, which they can't do with the

- I've owned the Traveler for about 5 years now and have been very happy
with it. I got it before they came out with the Mosquito (or before I
saw one) and I put my own no-see-um net on. I found the best way to
keep the lines from tangling is to pull them both into the middle,
then put one through the loop of the other one. They might turn
around a bit, but never tangled more that what I could undo in a
minute. I've since made a Speer type, but I think the Byer's is just
