  I've got a Hennessey

and like the bottom entry. Only problem I've run into is that it becomes a little problematic if you're using a sleeping pad when it gets cold. Getting in and out around the pad is doable, but a little aggravatin'. Now, HH's side zipper will not allow you to pull the netting completely free of the hammock. There is a web site where they will add zippers to your HH to do this, but they charge about $50, plus shipping. http://www.2qzqhammockhanger.com/ There have been times when I've been out and there have been no bugs, but there was a slight breeze that was stifled by the netting. Being able to pull it away would have been handy.
A good friend of mine who does a lot of hiking, etc., who also owns "several" hammocks, including the HH, really recommends the Warbonnet Blackbird. The Blackbird does allow you to pull the netting to one side which I like a lot. He also said to check out this site, more info there than you probably ever wanted! hammockforum.net
