I have used this hammock for 2 years now,and i still love it. This is not a backpacking hammock..too heavy and bulky. I am doing canoe trips into the backwoods with it. I always put an extra fly over my lawson for gear storage. I have been in terential wind and rain and never been wet. Staking out hammock corners is key. Replaced the cheesy plastic clips with small aluminum ones. I have never gad a problem.
I camped in my back yard with my Blue Ridge Hammock , it was very comfortable with my self inflating pad. I am a side sleeper I had a Great night. very easy to set up and take down the weight is about the same as my small one person tent but much more comfortable. Cant wait to take it canoeing on the Oswegatchie River in N.Y Adirondack Mts. Great product Thanks Russ
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 hammocks comfort level is outstanding as soon as I got in it it was way better than my gathered end hammocks the weight is worth the comfort excellent build quality wish I had bought one first maybe I wouldn't have 10 hammocks
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.
