Venezuelan or Jungle Hammocks: The Venezuelan hammock’s panels were always made of breathable material, necessary to prevent the onset of fungal infections caused by constant rain and high humidity. Fine-woven sand-fly netting was eventually added to provide more complete protection from mosquitoes, flies, and crawling insects, especially in regions notorious for malaria or screwworm infestations. The United States Army eventually adopted their own version of the jungle hammock, complete with rain proof fly and sand-fly netting for use by U.S. and Allied forces in tropical jungle regions such as Burma during World War II.
