I have a similar hammock (Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro), comparing it to this one, the Kakoon seems like a pretty decent hammock.
It's not as large as the Skeeter Beeter though, and I don't like the straps on the Kakoon as unless you get creative you can only use the strap that's built into the hammock, which seems a bit thin (But hey, I'm no hammock or rope expert, I just happen to own one)
A couple things on the mosquito netting; It's not removable, not really a big deal though, and on the Skeeter Beeter you have 2 lines to hang up the mosquito netting vs this one has one line and spreader bars. Personally I'm more of a fan of the 2 lines but the spreader bars are most likely easier, I just see it as one more thing that could break.
If you're looking for a cheap hammock to use occasionally this is most likely going to be fine, as far as I can tell at $40 it's the cheapest hammock with a bug net, but I would say if you're willing to spend a little extra or if you want a hammock for two, the Skeeter Beeter Pro is a better investment.
Also, do be careful not to put any strain on the bug net, while it does have a bit of give, it will tear fairly easily.
