In my youth, as a Scout in South Florida, we did a lot of
canoe camping in the Everglades. Jungle hammocks were the
greatest in protecting one from rain, dampness, and bugs.
But, unless your back is young and supple, you may find that
laying in a concavity is difficult. Now I prefer a firm and
flat surface. However, jungle hammocks can be pitched on
the ground and provide a convenient full-length side entry
that a bivy doesn't.
I believe that I've seen Jungle Hammocks advertized in
Campmor. Their catalog offers one-stop shopping for
virtually any camping need - check out Campmor's ad in
_Scouter_, or make a pilgramage to Paramus, NJ.
