I'm not so much a hammock guy myself, but some people love 'em. I suppose for car camping or base camping where weight isn't much of an issue, a hammock is pretty nice. Until it rains or the bugs come out. Then you're back in your tent, looking out at your empty hammock. Well, the folks at Hammock Bliss, have the solution for you hammock aficionados out there. The Hammock Bliss Sky Tent is a contraption, part tent, part mosquito netting, part storage vestibule that keeps you dry, bug free and off the ground. According to the website,
The new Hammock Bliss Sky Tent is a revolution in the making, bringing hammock camping to a new level of comfort and convenience. Sky Tent allows you to stay dry from the rain, safe from the bugs and provides ample space for you and your gear. It is a tent for your hammock off the ground. Sky Tent features an oversized rain fly to provide complete protection from the rain for both your hammock and your gear.

Sky Tent has a parachute nylon base layer that helps to retain your body heat. The oversized attached waterproof stuff sack easily accommodates any sized hammock. There is plenty of room to hang your backpack at either end of your hammock so both you and your gear can stay high and dry. Join the Sky Tent revolution - hammock camping will never be the same!
