Great new hammock/Tent for any situation you need protection from bugs and mosquitoes.Texsport offers a wide array of outdoor products, but the company is particularly well-known for its hammocks. Its first model, the Padre Island, was released nearly 25 years ago, and Texsport continues to produce durable, comfortable options for lovers of outdoor relaxation.

The Wilderness Hammock is ideal for hunters and campers whose travels take them to mosquito country. A fully-enclosed, “no-see-um” cotton mesh shelter is built around the hammock, keeping you protected from pests. The rugged cotton canvas sleep area measures 28-by-18-by-82 inches (W x H x D) and, with a 250-pound weight limit, there’s plenty of room for drowsy outdoor enthusiasts of all sizes to stretch out.

The top portion is constructed of fire retardant nylon, making it safe to use near your campfire, and its heavy polyurethane coating is nice when the weather turns wet. Steel rings at both ends secure the entire setup via heavy-duty parachute cord. A sturdy zipper closure and strong reinforcements at all stress points ensure years of sturdy service, and the hammock comes complete with a convenient nylon carrying and storage sack.

You will break your back and die a slow horrible death using this hammock. It will fail suddenly and with malice aforethought. Absolute CRAP. This item says its rated to hold up to 250lbs; this is false. I only weigh 225lbs and this thing dropped me lying still from 5 feet up like a rock into a pond. Mind you this was only about 120 seconds after entry and stopping all movement. Crushed my gear, hurt more due to the howls and laughter of the other four campers. I trusted the rating system of the manufacturer. The failure point was the poor stitching and strength of thread on the loops that the rope goes through to hold the hammock. They simply failed one after another rapidly with zero warning other than the sound of swearing and the ripping of fabric as I busted through the mosquito netting on my way down to the stones and earth under me. Thanks for making a total piece of crap! Thanks for embarrassing me in front of my friends. I will not forget your brand. I would not pay even one dollar for this prank of a hammock. Now I see others say it will not even hold a 185lb man or woman. You have been…

read the previous reviews about how small it was and … read the previous reviews about how small it was and took a chance by ordering nevertheless. unfortunately it is small as described , i am not a big guy but i doubt that i can turn around in this hammock . What i did is modify it a bit by putting aluminium pipes through the rope holders (a tip I read about in the reviews) so it will stay as wide as possible. the fabric is soft , the mosquito nets are perfectly surrounding the hammock , did not have the chance yet to test the roof but i am going to the interior this weekend and will definitely test it (i live in south america , tropical rain forest, ideal to test it, lots of mosquitos and other insects ) will continue when i am back

which is good. But it doesn’t come ready to set up It’s cheap, which is good. But it doesn’t come ready to set up. By my count, you need at least 6 ropes to suspend the netting, plus some ropes or carabiners+hammock straps to hang the hammock. Embarrasingly, I flipped this hammock. I’ve been hammocking for 4 years and have never fallen out of a hammock. My friends had to help me. My boyfriend uses this one and he doesn’t mind it. We got this instead of a separate bugnet for our other hammock, but in hindsight, I probably would’ve chosen the bugnet to suspend with a normal camping style hammock. It certainly would be safer.
