Calvin C.wrote a review of Hammock Bliss Mosquito Free Hammock on August 6, 2008
Very well made, great materials, comfortable, easy to use, etc. Worthwhile investment. When I first saw the Hammock Bliss, I was intrigued by what appeared to be two ropes on each end. I had the crazy idea this might make the hammock wider, thus a little easier on the shoulders. The ropes are simply the two ends of a single rope that goes through the end of the hammock. The hammock may be hung using this rope, or in conjunction with any kind of hanging system you have handy. It does not matter the configuration, the end of the hammock will always bunch together just like any other hammock and will not be wider. Apparently, if you want width, you need a hammock with a spreader bar at the ends. However, because of its size, the Hammock Bliss is very comfortable as is. It provides a little warmth by wind blockage, and easily accomodates a sleeping bag for cooler nights. The mosquito net is easy to use (or not use) and is adjusted with minimal effort. The entire system seems strong and destined for many years of use (assuming the user takes care of his gear). There is no need to struggle with placing a groundpad in the hammock, it readily conforms to your body and is easily manipulated for room and comfort. While no hammock system is ideal in very wet or extremely cold weather, I will always carry this hammock just because I MIGHT get to use it.
