Amazing!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The few times I've been able to use my hammock the set up is simple and it holds very well! The only thing I would advise is grab some new straps I went with ENOs atlas straps which don't harm trees and are simple set up

Very Swell

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Couldn't be happier with it, I've been looking at other hammocks but for the price this is the best out there. Great for shorter overnight hikes. Takes up a lot less room than a traditional sleeping bag, weighs a lot less too. I would recommend only using this on warmer dryer nights, cause this thing shouldn't get wet.

what a great buy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i bought it for backpacking in fair weather. works great for that, super light weight (much lighter than a tent and sleeping pad) and its super comfy. i got the double because it was on sale and I'm 6'. bigger is better right? YES this is the MOST comfy hammock I've ever been in. easy to set up, plenty of room to sleep how ever you like. its was on the higher price side for me but i couldn't be more happy. worth every penny. as of now it hangs from the ceiling in my apartment and i no longer sleep in my bed. probably getting one more. one for my room, one for camping. buy it. enough said.

Compact, well made

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Really a good hammock, it's made of tough material, and comes right out of the box ready to hang anywhere with two tie offs, and the carabiniers to snap it up quick wherever you go. It also has a sewn on stuff sack, so when it's time to pack it up is always plenty easy to find.

I have noticed on a few of the reviews that some who are around 6 ft say they have just enough room to sleep diagonally...I am 6'6'', would I be able to fit in this hammock?

I'm a fan.

I bought this hammock at the end of the summer and I love it. I got the blue hibiscus one and the colors are pretty nice. When you pack it away, its not the smallest, but its not bad. It is the size of my face when its packed.

Hammock Heaven

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing is awesome, but what's not to love about kicking it in a hammock? Pretty durable so far but is a little on the heavy side. I wouldn't recommend this for a multiday backpacking hammock unless you substitute it for a tent, then it's totally worth it. I had to purchase another 20 feet of chord to make sure I could put it up anywhere I wanted but other than that it comes with everything you need. Got it on sale and couldn't beat the price, can't go wrong with this one.

This or the ENO Double Nest? They seem near identical.

Responded on

You are right, they really are about the same. Only real difference you will notice is that this hammock is a little longer where the ENO Double Nest is a little wider, and even then you wouldn't really be able to notice the difference while using them.

Ultimate sleeping system

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Can't go wrong with a Grand Trunk. Solid materials make this a secure branch bed, and the ropes are strong and easy to adjust to different distances between trees. I like how small it can pack down to and I never go on a trip without it.

Great addition to a camping experience.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Good, solid hammock. Could easily sleep well in this. As a previous user stated, if you are in it by yourself, the hammock can cocoon you inside and helps keep bugs and moisture at bay. If it rains, simply run a rope across the trees and sling a tarp over it and you will be high and dry.

Packs small and light, and seems like it will hold up for many years. I am happy with this purchase. I got it at the sale price, and the value for the money was right. At full price, still probably worth it, but unless you need it right away, I personally would wait for the next sale.

does this include everything one would need to hang it?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes this comes with the hammock, the hanging rope, a stuff sack, and the 2 hooks to attach the hammock to the rope.

packable luxury

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

while the description says you can put two people in this - it's a bit on the cramped side for that. however, it fits one perfect. I am 5'5, and i don't have to do the diagonal thing to fit comfortably, and because there is so much fabric, i can cocoon nicely, keeping the sun or bugs at reasonable bay.

Which double hammock do you recommend? Grand Trunk or ENO?

Best Answer Responded on

This choice really comes down to price and what color you prefer. I've only used ENO and have found them to be very comfortable and easy to set up. Good luck on your decision. I hope this has helped.

chilling in the Uintas in the Double Parachute Hammock

Nice Hammock!

I bought the double for overnight stays in a hammock, and I think it is Just big enough for me to sleep in diagonally (I'm 5'11). It doesn't come with any ropes to hang it with, and the carabiners attached to it as it ships are insanely heavy. I replaced them (working load of about 345lbs each) with some home depot screw links which have roughly double the load capacity and are much lighter, and I recommend anyone who wants to use this hammock for backpacking do the same. For the ropes, I improvised with some short sections of rope I had lying around.
