Comfortable easy to set up and plenty of room to stretch out. The only issue is that I personally roll around a lot when I sleep and I ended up upside down. can't fault anyone but myself for that though! ill have to tie the sides down next time lol.
Many hundreds of positive reviews. Don't hesitate to get one
Enjoyed my first hammock camping experience!
This was my first time to “get off the ground” when camping. The Lawson hammock was easy to set up. The straps were stable. The hammock was relatively flat. When I first settled in for the night, I found my perfect nirvana. I did get up a couple of times that night, and upon getting back in, could not seem to get it exactly right, but was comfortable nonetheless.This was my first use, so more practice will improve my experience. Back sleeping worked decently well, side sleeping seemed to work surprisingly well. I used my own tarp above, which I preferred to the included tarp, which sits right on top of the bivy. The areas that I would note for Lawsons’s improvement or my own hacks are: - My sleeping pad slid around like crazy when getting in and out. There are YouTube videos of hacks where you can use a sleeping bag liner to hold your hammock in place. Very necessary. - When getting in and out, the hammock tended to tip and many things would fall to the ground - The small side pockets are only for small light items, anything else will fall out when you get in and out. - The shock cord holding up the tent poles at either end should be much stronger and thicker. Overall I am happy with the purchase and look forward to more trips. Thanks!
It's a hammock, it's a tent!
I love my new Lawson Blue Ridge hammock. I love how well it is made and from quality materials. I love how it is rain proof with its detachable rain fly and I love how it is bug proof with its no see-um mesh. I love how the spreader bars keep me from doing the usual hammock banana and enable me to sleep flat on my stomach. I love how the aluminum arch supports raise and give shape to the no see-um mesh providing me with a bug free screened in porch to relax in after a long day on the trail. I love how there are interior pockets for those little necessities. I love how there is a little hook overhead to hang an interior reading light from. In short, I love my new Lawson Blue Ridge camping hammock. See you on the Appalaichian Trail in '23!
Tent nah, hammock yeah
Using this as a hammock it works great and I would recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately when using it as a tent it is just too cramped and small. Will it work in a pinch? Yes. But I would not plan to use it daily as a tent.
This hammock is well made and designed beautifully. Unfortunately I returned mine because my girlfriend and I were tired of sleeping on unlevel ground and I thought that the spreader bars would create a flatter surface area in the hammock. It is much flatter than a hammock with out spreader bars but that was not the case for me. I am a big guy at 6'2", so hammock camping is not good on my back. The return process was easy and customer service is great. If you are a hammock camper already and are looking to upgrade from the cocoon style hammocks, this is the product for you!
Only con in my opinion is the size when packed. It is longer than ideal but fits in my pack nonetheless.
Simple, Roomy, Dry , Compact and Comfy!
Best tent I have ever owned! I am a 64 yr old single female- packing light and simple is a must! This tent is roomy- no banana back discomfort- you can sleep in any position - and it stays dry! I ordered the under blanket and found a really nice thick larger size padding and it doesn’t slide around - I love my cabin in the sky! Great product! Thank you Lawson!
