Do you find tents too mundane a lodging for camping adventures? Rise above it all by bedding down (or rather up) in one of Grand Trunk's ultra-lightweight but super-roomy (10.6 feet long by 5 feet wide), travel hammocks. What about bugs? Screen them out, of course, with my favorite new model, the Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock. A roomy layer of mosquito netting sewn onto the top of the hammock (with a double-sided zipper running the length of one side as an entry point), is kept suspended airily overhead via included guy lines that you can tie to the same two trees, boulders, porch posts - or even cars, if you must - as the hammock itself (only a bit higher for better clearance). Like all Grand Trunk hammocks, the Skeeter Beeter Pro is made of parachute nylon, weighing in at a mere 35 ounces. The hammock stashes in an integrated stuff-sack, which functions as a small hanging bag when the hammock is strung up. Heavy duty carabiners at each end of the hammock latch onto whatever long, strong rope you've brought to lash around your supports. Better yet, splurge on one of Grand Trunk's neon-colored Trunk Straps (sold separately). The 10-foot-long by 1-inch-wide polyurethane-coated polyester straps have reinforced attachment/adjustment points spaced along the length to enhance grip, or for latching on assorted gear or clothing in a kind of suspended "closet" system. Even if hotels are more your style, there's no reason you can't hang this hammock between two strong balcony railings, or two palm trees on the beach.
Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock in camouflage print, olive/khaki, or forest/navy is $85; Trunk Strap in choice of six colors is about $30; at .
Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock keeps bugs away from you while you relax. This lightweight parachute nylon silk hammock has a built on no-see-um mesh canopy to keep bugs out and an incredible load capacity of 400 lbs. A full length zipper simplifies getting in and out. Includes rope to keep the canopy suspended. 2 inner pockets on the mesh keep your glasses, knife, flashlight or whatever in a convenient and close location. Easy to use without the screen, just roll it over. Discover the ease and comfort of hammock life and as they say "It beats the ground." Yes it does.
Grand Trunk designed the Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock with a No See-Um mesh mosquito net so you can sleep bug-free. Double-sided zippers seal you in while the nautical grade-carabiners and triple-stitched parachute nylon hold you securely off the ground. Two storage pockets give you a safe-and-sound way to stow your valuables. The hanging kit is included so all you have to do is find a couple of obliging trees and then fall asleep.
