i am surprised

Reviewed by bill from folsom, ca on Sunday, September 6, 2015
this is my fourth hammock. i was surprised how nice it is. i like the fabric, and it has a nice lay. i think it is more comfortable than my double slacker thermarest hammock, and this hammock is way less money , although the thermarest did come with two nice carabiners (and this one did not). now to use this hammock for backpacking -
my suggestion - toss the ropes etc. that came with it - they are too heavy for backpacking. get some hammock straps (the adjustable kind with lots of loops like ENO SlapStrapPRO Hammock Suspension System, although these will stretch a little bit, they are so heavily discounted here i think if this is your first hammock get them), also buy two carabiners (the climbing kind like Omega Pacific Doval Carabiner - Wire Gate). you now are ready to hang in 5 minutes. eventually you might want a tarp to keep the rain out, maybe some bug netting but that can wait.
