I've used a hammock since 1976. In my opinion, it's the best way to sleep in the woods. I tie a poncho above me on the same tree as my bed. No need to put "spreaders" on it. Slept dry, even in Panamanian deluges. In advanced hammocking, you can relieve your bladder without getting out of bed. Two cautions are in order, don't put your ruck/boots below your waist and the other, don't put your appendage between the netting, go over it. With practice, you can get rolled up in your poncho liner or even crawl in and zip a sleeping bag around yourself in cold weather. Mosquitoes? Use your thermal cell.
