I weight about 195, and I've spent a bunch of nights in mine with no problems.  On a cold night, I also have a pad, sleeping bag, etc.  I've also hung an eno gear sling from mine to hold a pack and rifle.  Just pitch it at the correct angle with the proper suspension and you should be fine.

is the quality of these hammocks on par with say ENO? They seem to be lighter in specs. I currently just use an eno double nest and hennessy hex fly. for my set up. it's a nice set up for me b/c I usually just use my tent b/c it's lighter for the most part than my hammock set up haha . May get one for a spare though.

Yes for my Kindle. But the payment processing was under Woot and not Amazon. I wonder if that is what did it?

This will be my second summer taking my son out camping.

Time to move him up to backpacking in remote  areas where
being off the ground allows you to sleep safer and sounder

Thanks op I grabbed one with a rain fly
Link Posted: 6/4/2015 4:09:12 PM EDT
Eh, I resisted all day...but what the hell. In for one and a rainfly. Combined they were cheaper than my ENO doublenest was.
Link Posted: 6/4/2015 4:26:17 PM EDT
Ordered. I wanted one of these last time they were on sale but I missed it when I had a chance to try to order.

Might make a day trip out to the middle of nowhere on the motorcycle once I figure out how to set it up.

I'm trying to come up with reasons to buy it while I already have all the camping equipment I need.

But someday I want to be a backpacker......

In for 2 and 2 flies.

The boy's been wanting to do some backpacking so this should be good for him.

Shoot, even the girl started getting excited about it when she found out.

If you plan to overnight in one, make sure to use either an underquilt or some sort of mattress with it. Otherwise you will get a cold backside due to lack of insulation.

The ENO is 6.4lbs, the one I posted is like 1.6.....that's a huge difference.

This is my first hammock.  Would a sleeping bag be sufficient?  Or are you not supposed to use a sleeping bag with a hammock?

On colder nights you will want some sort of pad under you, otherwise a sleeping bag won't be sufficient to block the cold air. Some people use these. I use a Thermarest pad along with a 20*F down bag in the colder months.

If you do it right, you can set it up as an extra-sturdy clothesline.

I was just going by amazon's description

"Product Dimensions: 5 x 5 x 5 inches ; 6.4 pounds"

Not sure why that face was necessary.

When you use a sleeping bag, you are crushing the insulation with your weight. This allows the wind to steal your heat via convection. A sleeping bag will work great for the rest of your body, but your backside will still get cold. Place a thermarest under your sleeping bag, and you'll be fine. The thermarest helps trap the warm air and keeps your backside warm.

If overnight temps are above 70, you'll probably not need the pad, but I bring one anyway.

Got mine today... Seems very well built.. Was disappointed to see there is no suspension system as the description said it was ready to go out of the box.. I have some from my other hammock but will end up getting a dedicated one for this one as not to switch back and forth.
Link Posted: 6/9/2015 3:33:50 PM EDT
Got mine yesterday and now I've been sucked into suspensions systems ... continuous loops, whoopie slings, DutchWare Dutch Buckles, Hammock Fan's titanium anchors ... my head is spinning.



I just want a fairly robust setup but trying to shave every ounce is not one of my overall goals.

I used ratchet straps for their test run.

I'll probably get something nicer for the long run.

the easiest most simple and robust way is a piece of webbing for the tree strap and a cinch buckle for adjustment. It is literally a piece of webbing with a caribeaner or dutch clip at one end and you run it through the cinch buckle that you attach to the clips on the ends of the hammocks. The entire system can be put together for about $12

He shows this from about 2:45-5:00... guy is a bit of a character but has alot of useful information..

It's not always about having a lighter setup. Personally I find the flexibility and comfort of a hammock considerably greater than any tent of equal or lesser weight.

I set mine up Sunday night as a test run & the kids like them.

They are going to require some tweaking for my 250 lb frame.

I also bought the flys that were on sale with the hammocks.  They'll do in a pinch, but I think I'd like something bigger.
