THE lightweight hammock set up

This is the one you want if you want to backpack fast and light. Comes with a couple of great biners that should promptly be replaced with amsteel loops. Pick up some whoopie slings and some tree savers - find the light weight ones - and you could be rolling at under 10 ozs. Do a little research on line to find some hammock specialists to source your suspension system. You'll save quite a bit of weight. If I use all the bells and whistles, including "Dutch" hardware I'm still out at 11.5 ozs. It all starts though with the Grand Trunk Nano-7.
