Description

The quintessential outdoor bed.

The Grand Trunk Single Parachute Hammock makes for a simple, off-the-ground place to sleep, and it packs down to the size of a softball, so it's extremely easy to tote. Set it up for desert camping or when you just want a nice place to relax around your car campsite. The high-strength parachute material is mildew-resistant and triple-reinforced at all weight-bearing points.

Eno or Grand Trunk?

I really like this hammock.

The Grand Trunk single is supposed to be a bit longer than the Eno. Does that make it more comfortable? I saw the reviews that Outdoor Gear lab did on hammocks so I decided to try a grand Trunk over the Eno.
The material is the same as the double Eno I have. The GT carabiners are way too heavy and I replaced them with some small lightweight wiregate carabiners. Much better.
The GT comes with two twine cords for hanging. They use a simple method of knots along the doubled up cord and are easy to set up and are better than nothing but you would definitely scar a tree using them. The Eno hammocks don't come with anything but I think I will just use the Eno Atlas straps with this hammock instead of the supplied twine cord.

Whose is better? I think it is a toss up.. Better and lighter carabiners with the Eno but no supplied ends for hanging. The GT has Carabiners that you could use as weapons to knock someone unconscious and they come with twine cords for hanging.

I am just happy that I have a hammock that I can sleep in that doesn't try to smother me in my sleep like the doubles do.

Essential Back Country Gear!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love this hammock! I've used it on several backpacking excursions as well as countless camping trips and each time it has performed flawlessly. I'd say its comparable to eno products but without the price tag. The materials seem to be super durable while still delivering a soft comfy feel. I loved it so much i bought my girlfriend an Ultralight and my parents a double. Word of advice: if your hammock doesn't come with the hanging kit - get it! It makes set up a breeze and is worth the extra weight.

Awesome!

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

very light, the material is very thin and the whole set up is very easy. It packs down into its own pocket so its super easy to transport. Very comfortable to sleep in and with a sleeping bag and pad can replace a tent.

Get one!

I drove out West for two months of camping out and whatnot. I used this hammock many times and it proved to be very durable and comfortable. The more you use it the more you will love it.

Solid Hammock

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing is great. I used it several times in the Sierra mountains, and enjoyed each moment I climbed into it to dive deeper into my book. The width is ample, allowing the sides to envelope you when the wind picks up.

No tears or blemishes have appeared in the material after 10 plus uses. The stuff sack works great for holding a water bottle within arms reach so one doesn't have to dismount.

Yes this comes with the hanging rope and instructions as well as 2 carabiners and the stuff sack.

Great Hammock

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

This is a great hammock. It is a little heavier than I would have thought. This is mostly because of the hardware. The material is actually really thin. I think it is awesome that it comes with everything necessary. I am definitely pleased with this hammock.

does this hammock come with all the hardware and straps to attach to trees?

It does come with the hardware and straps. They even fit in the little pocket for easy transportation.

What type of rain fly should I pick up to go with this hammock? I'm in love with this one since they offer it in pink!

Also... would these work with it?

BLU,

yes, depending on the weight, but those straps will work fine.

Personally i would stick with the open rain shelters over the hammock,its much easier to set up that way. You wont have a spider web of ropes and straps going to every tree, one side will be completely open, which is nice if you have a little fire or whatever.

wanted to know if this hammock is suv and water resisted cause i leave in Jacksonville also can we leave it out side..

Responded on

Yes it is to a degree...if you leave it out for perpetuity it will show the wear. A day or three in inclement weather won't hurt it much though-IMHO.

Great Hammock

I recently just bought my fiance a Grand Trunk Single Parachute Hammock. She loves it! I haven't gotten to try it out yet, because she will not get out of it. I own a ENO double hammock and I'm very interested in comparing the two hammocks over our next couple of trips. One thing I like about the GT is that the hammock I bought came with the straps to hang the hammock with, my ENO did not. But I like the pack bag on the ENO better, because of the compression straps on it. The GT does not have the compression straps and therefore does not pack down as small. The GT is a great hammock either way you look at it.
