For me at least, I found it very difficult to wiggle in and out of my sleeping bag without tipping over. Stabilizing guy lines on each side remedied that the second night. It is comfortable, and the mesh top keeps bugs out while letting you stargaze. Setting it up and taking it down is quick and easy. I would recommend it.
As advertised, this hammock sleeps relatively flat with minimal bunching. I used mine camping in the picayune strand ( South Florida) whole participaing innthe 2016 Python Challenge. This year I bought a second one so that my Foster Son can experience back country camping in the Big Cypress preserve . Even suspended over water. This is the buggiest environment you can imagine. No worries !
Looking forward to spring so I can try it out. I bought it for my birthday but didn’t get a chance to put it up and try it out , now the weather has changed .
I tried backpacking in a gathered-in hammock this summer, and could barely sleep. I had shoulder squeeze and felt claustrophobic. Soon after, I saw an advertisement for Lawson, saw there was a big sale and took a chance on it. Life changing hammock experience. It is so roomy and comfortable that I'd sleep in it every night if my wife let me. Can't wait to take it out again this weekend.
Love it, however when inside, the zipper area is taught and won't zip unless I climb out and get it started on both sides about 1 foot up.
I recently kayaked 107 miles down the Apalachicola River. We took five days and two nights I was able to find trees for my hammock. The other two nights we were on a sandbar, but the hammock worked well on the ground too. I just added a ground cloth. I’ll send photos in another email.
Love the hammock but wished it came with the underquilt. Laying in it even in 60 degree weather you can definitely start to feel the CBS.
Love the Lawson Blue Ridge Hammock. Still learning the different ways to hang it. But, very roomy and the bug net in isn't in your face is a plus.
