thankyou . I think I will give that one a tryThe XXL ultra light hammock from TWHammocks might be worth a go at £18.99. It's got the length you might find useful and appears to be cheaper than DD equivalents.
Don't bother with a net initially unless you're​ in midge country.
I've not tried their hammocks but have got one of their tarps which is a great piece of kit.
Side note: If you get a larger/longer hammock than usual (which I personally I prefer) be aware that you might need to get a bigger than average tarp to cover it.

Good point. You can pitch the tarp on the diagonal to give it more length. And you can see out which is nice.Side note: If you get a larger/longer hammock than usual (which I personally I prefer) be aware that you might need to get a bigger than average tarp to cover it.
Dd hammocks do a scout hammo for 15 quid including postage but if you're over 5ft8 n a wide chap you'd struggle to fit but they do a larger one just a camping hammock for about 25 quid they're good qualitywhat would be the cheapest hammock that is worth trying. I don't think an ebay string bag will be the best introduction
