I had tried gathered end hammocks in the past and could not get comfortable in them. Lawson’s Blueridge Hammock is extremely comfortable and does not force you into an obtuse banana bend. Mind you this is not flat as a board but provides you with the comfort of side sleeping and you will be surprised at how much room you have in this hammock which is very important for me. The quality feels very good as well. Netting is going to keep out just about every bug… that said the netting is so fine that it provides you with insulation as well. Put on the rain fly and your hammock will have excellent insulation and protection from the top side. But in the heat I would recommend a secondary rain fly above the hammock to allow for air flow. The underquilt is nice and provides me with warmth and insulation in the cold weather (29F) but it is in no way designed to be load bearing. Ensure you do not put the underquilt on too tightly. The straps are high quality and the buckle clip holds position tightly. It takes me only about 5 mins at most to setup. It will pack away in its sack at around 23”x5” and the underquilt will pack away no bigger than others. I do wish the stuff sacks came with a sewn handle on the end for deployment. I have also tried this Hammock out as a Tent and it’s wonderful. My friends are jealous when camping but proud when hiking as this hammock will require a extra carrying bag or larger ruck to tote. For now I am using a medium ALICE ruck for all my gear and carrying perfectly sized tote for my hammock, underquilt and Klymit air mattress. Which is pretty light IMO. I would like to see titanium spreader bars and beams in the future. Every oz counts. With proper care, responsibility and reasonable use, this Hammock should last you for years.
Very comfortable and roomy. Great design. Glad I purchased it!
The Ultimate Camping Hammock
Built beautifully and a far better system than I've used in the past. Compact and easy to use.
Good hammock, great customer service.
Hammock works as it should, comfortable and warm. I wish some of the hardware was a bit more durable and the quilt had a better attachment system. Great customer service when I called with a concern. They stand behind thier product and genuinely want to learn how to improve.
Feels like camping in a cloud.
Easy to set up. So much more comfortable than sleeping in a tent on the ground. I love it. Wish I had bought one sooner.
Even an old lady can do this hammock thing.
Newbie. Just slept 5 night in a Lawson. Gave me a great nights rest. Easy to put up. Still learning how to get into it.
Great product; thanks
Quire near perfect.
