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!
I love it even more now
I love the design. I haven't seen another like it with the spreaders to keep a wide open space. The Aluminum arch poles are light and easy to install/remove. The pockets inside provide just enough space for essentials. I found it to be very stable once inside and could move from my back to side sleeping easily and comfortably. My sleeping pad did slide side-to-side a bit, but I'm looking into a way to secure it with the velcro tabs that are already in the hammock. Its a little awkward reaching the far end of the zipper when inside, but I can make it work. I'd like it if the fly could be propped open over the door too. Right now I fold it back over the other half but that leaves the door exposed to rain. My reason for 4 stars is that it is just too heavy (I weighed it in at 5 lbs 4 oz, not 4lbs 4 oz as advertised) for backpacking and folds up too big (long). I read an article online where someone replaced the spreaders with carbon fiber and three pieces vs two for each spreader. Well, I tried it and also replaced the cords with 2mm dyneema. Works great! Folds to less than 12" long, and weighs in at 3lbs 12 oz for the hammock, fly, poles, and stakes in the bag! Now I LOVE it! It didn't cost much more to make the modifications, and I think Lawson could probably reduce the price increase with bulk purchasing of materials. I highly recommend Lawson look into the modifications. I think their backpacking customer base will increase dramatically. So now it fits nicely in my pack and allows for almost 24 oz more food or gear under the same load. I've been bragging on it and I know two people were going to check out Lawson Hammocks already.
I hope it's as good as it was promoted
It's headed to the Philippines as a Christmas present for my wife's Dad. I hope it's is a good quality and solid enough for everyday use. It's always hot and humid or hot and raining and their mosquitos look more like wasp. It will be used EVERY day. If it's cheap quality and doesn't last long I will be the first one to hear about it, y'all will be the second. Have a good day
Just do it !!!
If you are even considering this hammock then pull the trigger. It's super comfy . The all in one design makes it super easy to set up. The interior is spacious enough to feel comfortable. I am able to sleep on my side. I'm truly impressed with the product. Also. The customer service has been excellent !!!
