    Single layer hammock, netted, lightweight material (1.0, 1.2)

    Looking to buy my first hammock and figure I'd go used since I'm not sure how much I'll like it.

    Mostly looking for hammocks that fit this criteria:

    - reasonably lightweight, so single layer, ideally 1.0 hexon or 1.2 material
    - need a net solution. Either integrated, or possibly open to net attachments, esp if they can cinch at sides rather than bottom
    - open to any suspension system other than the heavy spider/loop type ones. Beetle buckles, whoopie, etc ok.
    - also looking for a tarp. Something like a silpoly minifly or hammock gear DCF standard tarp

    Possible hammocks I'm considering but not limited to: Dutch Half-zip netted, Dream Hammocks Darien, Dutch Chameleon, or similar.

    Must be in good condition, prefer lightly used or like new. Should be at a reasonable discount compared to new price, especially since black friday pricing coming up will likely be in the 10-20% off range from a lot of manufacturers.

    How tall are you and how much do you weigh? I have a couple of hammocks that might work for you, depending.

    Still looking? If so you may want to bump it at least once every week. Items that are inactive are subject to being removed from the Market Place area, it allows members to know you are still interested and it will keep the moderators from "pinging" you! (Bumps mean to respond in the post)

    I have a Dutchware Gear Half Wit to get you started. Hexon 1.0 in blue. Side pull outs. Half Wil bug net. Lashit ridge line, side pull outs with Tato door hooks, continuous loops in 7/64 Amsteel, with Turtle Tie hardware. I can easily put together a set of tree huggers and Amsteel leaders to go with it.
    Yes, my pack weighs 70lbs, but it's all light weight gear....
