@Dnachman I personally love the Pro Hammock by Sea to Summit. It's not completely flat, but as long as your trees aren't the same distance apart as the length of the hammock (meaning there is space to extend the hammock straps), you can make this hammock quite flat so you don't banana in it. I love using this hammock for backpacking because it is very light, durable, dries quickly, and takes up barely any space. This hammock, in my opinion, is great for not only sleeping/laying down in, but for relaxing and sitting in as well. By far the best hammock for backpacking that I've come across thus far!
