5 Best Hammocks with Mosquito Net

What is better than getting out in nature and experiencing it in all its glory? That is the beauty of using a hammock over a tent.

Sure with a tent, you have the security feature. But there is something primal about drifting off to sleep in a hammock.

When you get a hammock you also have to take into account nature at its worse and that includes all the insects that see you as dinner.

Luckily though someone attached netting over a hammock. Today we now have a variety of hammocks that offer netting to keep the creepy crawlers to flying nuisances away.

5 Best Hammocks with Mosquito Netting

How To choose the best hammocks with mosquito net?

Picking out the right hammock can be a little tricky.

You need a hammock that will hold you up, so weight is an issue. Plus you should look at the netting.

Does the netting really keep mosquitoes and other pests out of your sleeping area? There are some that do and they are called “no-see-um”. These kinds of hammocks allow you a peaceful night sleep as the netting is so close together that nothing can get through.

Another thing you need to consider when picking out your hammock with netting is how close you want the netting to be. Some people don’t mind having the net right on top of them.

Then there are other people who need that extra space so they don’t feel claustrophobic. Of course, no matter how you prefer to sleep with the net, you need to make sure that it is attached to the hammock.

You will find that some hammocks only offer a net to cover your hammock and it is draped over you. While some may like this style, you have to understand that bugs can still get in from below.

You may not have any issues with flying bugs but creepy crawlers like spiders, centipedes, roaches and the like can easily slip under the netting. So it is kind of important to make sure you get the kind of netting you want.

Tips for Sleeping in Hammocks

For some of you, sleeping in a hammock may be a brand new experience. There are just a few things to keep in mind when you are out in the woods and roughing it under the stars.

Tip #1: Make sure to angle the hammock at least 30 degrees if you want a flat lay. When you are setting up the tree straps it is important to make note where you want them. You can’t have a level hammock as you will be fighting with it all night.

You need to angle it just a bit to give your head a bit of support. The more you angle the hammock the more upright you will rest. So, when you are getting it set up for the first time, jump into it a couple of times to make sure you are completely comfortable. Don’t just assume because it is up that it will be at the correct angle you want it when you go to sleep.

Tip #2:  You need to know is that even if it does come with mosquito netting, the parachute material is still pretty thin. When you are out in the woods or by a water source it is possible for you to get bitten by mosquitos through the bottom of the hammock. Best thing to do is spray the hammock down with bug repellant before you go to sleep just to be on the safe side.

Tip #3: Always double check your rigging before you go to sleep for the night. You may not have the straps around the trees snug enough. Or your lines may have shifted if it is windy. If you don’t want to end up on the ground in the middle of the night, check your lines before you get in. Too often someone thinks that everything is secure and in the middle of the night, you hear a gasp because their hammock can’t take the weight due to the lines. So make sure you check your lines.

Conclusion:

Sleeping under the stars is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.

Thanks to netting on or around a hammock, doing so just makes it more comfortable. Using a hammock is like going back in time as it allows you to get back to nature.
