Exped Scout Hammock Combi

A superior safe haven from bugs.

Brand: Exped Scout

Model: Combi Hammock



3lbs. 12oz.

Want to test bugproofness? Head into a South Carolina swamp during mosquito season. In conditions that had some folks running for the car, the Scout proved a better refuge than competitors. Why? A double layer of ripstop polyester is thick enough to thwart bites from penetrating the underside (and it doubles as a sleeping pad sleeve in winter). Plus, integrated sleeves and loops allow you to rig the mosquito netting with trekking poles or cordage so it pulls away from you (more interior space)—or even pitch it as a ground shelter. Tarp included. $200; 3 lbs. 12 oz.;
