Set up for the first time and one of the plastic clips broke.... read the other reviews on good build quality so had higher expectations. Decent enough, not too heavy
I have ordered this as a gift. Lawson is either too cheap or just lazy to put the item in a shipping box. They ship FedEx who just dropped this at the door, in the rain and by the time I got home from work, the box was water logged.
Quality of the product is very good. Have used it now on three backpacking trips and it is very easy and fast to set up. I will say that it’s quite heavy and bulky to carry in the pack. It would be comparable to carrying a two-man tent. I have a high-quality sleeping bag but still got quite cold in the Hammack in the early morning when it dipped into the high 20s. Will consider getting the undergarment that attaches to the tent but that does add more bulk and weight to your pack. Overall it’s very comfortable and I feel would be used best for a short backpacking trip or for truck camping.
This hammock performs reasonably well for what is represented, but I wouldn't recommend it for backpacking because of its bulk and weight. In exchange for the weight gain, you get a hammock that's, well, pretty much just a hammock. With the weight of a person in it, don't think that the floor is going to actually remain in any shape resembling flat. Also, it really was impossible to use without staking down the guys TIGHT on each side. Without this, it was easily prone to flip. That said, I used it on a rainy 3 day trip in the Smokies and the rain cover performed reasonably well-- all dry. But, I had to find an additional way to cover my pack and gear, with no vestibule (and, again, you won't be putting any gear on the floor of this thing). All in all, it's a fun item for short distances or car camping, but doesn't really fit the bill for serious backpacking
easy to set up, bug net
The hammock is amazing! The best part about it, is you don't have to sleep on your back if you don't want to. Big win for anyone who sleeps on their stomach. Great as a tent too, if there is not an area to hook your straps to.
The hammock is roomy and when used as a hammock it sways heavily. I countered this by tying the corners down. As a tent the hammock seems to work just fine. I have set it up but not actually used it.
Set up on ground no trees available in yard I liked the ease of set up. Pleased with construction and material can`t wait to try hanging and getting right setup for my comfort. Spreader bars give plenty of room I will be using hammock on float trips so weight isn`t problem .
