Is it just me, or do those sea to summit hammocks just seem too small for the average user? The one I have is larger than those and I am feeling like it isn't big enough, though I am 6'2"
the pro is 3 m and the lite is 2.6 m
i have a jungle hammock which is 2.7 m (9 foot) and there is plenty of room for @ 175 cm...@ 186 (6.2 foot) there will be room enough for you
however i feel a longer hammock would suit you better disco
i do however like the fly design...but @ the price point of $199 it isn't on my radar...but for those looking to make their own the concept is sound and gives the benefits of both square and diamond shaped tarps
just out of interest this is what i use: http://www.mosquitohammock.com/junglehammock.html
i bought it to see if i liked the concept with the thought of upgrading if it work for me...but i have never thought of, or needed to upgrade,i just got a bigger tarp
btw i use cut arrow shafts as spreaders...

Thanks Astro. Makes me wonder also if I'm just not suited to hammock sleeping.....I'll keep plugging away and see if I can work things out
@6.2 foot you should be more comfortable in a hammock than on the ground...

the mosquito hammock is pretty well made, and tough. just not suited to me. My current DutchWear gear hammock is 11" and works well. the extra length gives you more options for how you set it up
There are lots of lighter weight options if that's your thing
hammocks aren't for everyone
Cheers guys-I'll search out a longer option and try that out. Just can't afford to buy anything premade at the moment
check out rays outdoors they now sell eno hammocks and gear
