    Yeh. Can't remember who made mine but it was only 15quid. Whats more important is what you hang it with. Ditch the chords it comes with and used knotted slings or simlar. Easy to adjust and less stretch.

    Yeah a cheap nylon hammock will do the job. Replace the horrible rope with a daisy chain at each end...

    I've not insulated it yet, but I've only used the hammock a few times so far.

    Iv always used these guys, sound lads and after service is great.

    iv got the green hornet which i use all year round and love it but i also have a cheap no frills one for caves etc.

    As you know it all depends on where you intend to use it, some have the zipped compartment for isulation, the green hornets do and have the built in midge net which does help keep the warmth in and bugs and other airborne debri out.

    If theres a cold breeze i tend to feel the cold underneath so i just chuck i silver screen windscreen cover in or a piece of this.... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Radiator-...hash=item1c4b6721a3:m:mZ1RVf_5ypzTwSylOAFkHgQ

    Iv heard good reports about these guys and their equipment too. http://www.ddhammocks.com/

    storm rings really help if its raining also, just fasten them just outside the hammock, water tracks down the ring instead of down into the hammock.

    just my 2 pennys worth.
