Stretch out on your hammock in the rain with the Hammock Bliss All Purpose Shelter.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought two of these for covering hammocks.
First, note the number of tie-outs - four corners and two middles on the short sides. It needs two middles for the long sides however - you *will* get wet when the precip causes sagging. It does not matter how taut this is pitched, there needs to be more tie-outs. You can add your own though (several methods).
For the price though, good low weight material, easy setup and durable so far. It does the job with a little help.

Essential hammock addition
Needed a tarp for my ENO doublenest and this thing works great. Waterproof,quick n' easy to setup, and works fairly well when using the white side to reflect sun. Doubles well as a quick setup shelter from rain where under you have plenty of space to cook, play cards, etc

Yes, I use this with my double ENO and it works great!

how would this work with the mosquito netting?
This would work fine with mosquito netting for hammocks (ie ENO guardian) and pre-mosquito netted hammocks. It is simply a tarp that you stretch over to suspend above your hammock.

when i buy the Hammock Bliss all purpose shelter does it come with a hammock
No, it is only a tarp meant to be used with a hammock. It attaches to the same points as the hammock.

Will i need to buy stakes for the tie downs?
Yes. It does not come with stakes.

Is this a rectangle 120" by 68"? Is it designed to be just a hammock shelter or would it work as a tarp shelter on the ground as will?
Yes. It appears to be a rectangle and it seems to be very flexible in its use. It is recommended for use with their hammock, but it would probably be great for other things. (they want you to buy the hammock to go with it)
I just got one brand new and cheaper off of Amazon.com with free shipping. the material itself is lighjtweight and durable.... but you want to use it as a tarp/rain fly... not a groundcloth. it's pretty durable but too likely to rip if it's on the ground.
it's very good size... but it is meant to be used with a hammock or as an instant shelter.
the reflective side..... is almost white. not silvery at all
You can use this as a stand alone tarp shelter by hanging it between 2 tress and staking it out, or even by using 2 hiking/ski poles at the ends and staking it that way.
