I've slept in a hammock most nights for that last 10 - 15 years. I have used the ENO double nest for the last few years. Other than a few loose stitches on the travel sack it's held up incredibly well. I hang with atlas straps.Going the hammock route in my van. The thread below has some good mounting points, but now it's time to decide on the hammock itself.
Pretty much all the googles lead me to the Warbonnet Blackbird as the most comfortable for sleeping. It's a bit pricier than entry options, but I don't mind paying a premium for a good night's sleep. Small amount in the context of the full build as well...
Before I pull the trigger, wondering if anyone else sleeps in hammocks and has any feedback/tips/tricks etc?
Hammocks and hanging ChairsI thought this would be a good thread for those of us that use Hammocks and hanging chairs to throw around some ideas. In my van I do have the stuff to make a bed but I wanted a quick way to throw a Hammock up if I was hauling bikes and needed a quick nap.

I'm six foot four so a large hammock is a must. They can get quite cold in the winter if you don't have an under-quilt.
I've never used the warbonnet but it looks like an outdoor hammock with all the bells and whistles. I prefer hyper simple hammocks for indoor use, but would consider this for camping.
I've hung a hammock in my van a few times, but once the cabinetry goes in, there just won't be enough space to use it comfortably. I'll be going with a fixed bed in my van.
Not much else to say about it other than every once in a while I'll get an urge to sleep on my stomach and that's not exactly possible in a hammock
