Hope your experience is better than mine

Got this hammock and went for a nap,
not realizing it's a piece of ...
(But it's made by Grand Trunk?!)
Split and let me down with a thunk!
The whole neighborhood heard "OH SNAP!"

I was only in it for about a half hour, I weigh less than the max it's supposed to be able to hold, but it split almost in 2 (across my Grand Trunk, if you know what I mean). Hopefully it was a fluke and their other products are better than that.

This hammock is in it for the long haul.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

7 years of hard use.

I got this hammock while in high school and so was as hard on it as any teen can be. Always stored with the biners inside the stuff sack; this thing has held three people more times than I can count. Don't let the thin fabric fool you: it can stand up to a beating. This long later, it has one hole -- in the stuff sack: my dog thought I was carrying a toy and bit through it. The threads are kind of pulling away from each other -- thinning? -- but it doesn't seem to be affecting the integrity of the fabric. Nothing is fraying and none of the threads have actually broken. I removed the s-hooks that came with this and replaced them immediately with biners, and have more recently taken out the ropes in the end channels and threaded the biners directly through the channel.

This is a great lightweight hammock to toss in your daypack; makes for a relaxing reward once you summit!

Light weight

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

Light weight hammock for backpacking or keeping it in the car for a nice picnic in the park/Mountains if you want to lounge. It is pretty thin, but I haven't had any issues with it yet. The straps are not included. Great price!

Almost perfect.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have only used my GT a few times now, and as far as comfort goes, it gets 100%.

I missed the review that mentioned the hanging straps weren't included in this purchase.. and was incredibly disappointed that I wasn't able to test it out right after receiving it. I still haven't purchased decent straps - I'm working with a bit of nylon rope from the junk drawer that's holding up well so far.

It is Pretty light

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

I bought the Royal Blue one because of the price. I haven't slept in it yet, but I did set it up and layed in it. It seems a little bigger than a ENO single but not as big as a double. I think it is a good size and am anxious to take it camping and see how it does. So far I'm giving it 4 Stars. That might change if I find it to not be very durable like these other fine folks are claiming.

Spend the extra money

This product is very inexpensive, but the quality matches the price. Cheap.

It's only 20 bucks

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

its cheap and light those are my favorite things about it, on that note its pretty cheap material I haven't used too many time but i can see this thing already coming apart... but it was only $20. BIG THING doesn't come with strings or anything to attach to tree so you gotta get that on your own

Okay Hammock

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am not very fond of this item. I got it for Christmas, so I tried it out, it works but looks and feels cheap. It is now in my car camping crap area. I would not used this for backpacking.

Okay Hammock

Much more durable than it appears

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is an extremely lightweight single hammock. The material is thin and seems very fragile, which worried me when I first unpacked it, but I have used it a few times now and it is holding up really well- no holes or snags. The hammock does not come with hanging straps but does include an S-hook on each end. I have been using 6mm cord and Camp USA Nano 23 ultralight biners to hang this for a more versatile setup than optional tree straps. I just wish the hammock was about a foot wider and would be willing to deal with the extra weight. When I am in it with a sleeping pad there's not quite enough fabric to pull over myself for wind protection. I am 6' tall and the hammock is plenty long.

UL hammock...

I cant say I dont recommend this, but rather a very conditional recomendation. One, consider that it is UL, 12oz, and $20. After a week of use I noticed a hole in the fabric. The only possible cause I can dream of (after much deliberation on this) is that my belt pouch for my multi-tool has some how rubbed a hole / tear in the fabric, which tells me (going back to 80% UL fabric gear) there is a serious loss of durability for the sake of being so light weight. Therefore, IDEAL conditions to purchase / use this hammock include weekend trips only, just you and your shorts (preferably running style only) when you climb in, and fair weather only so wind and bugs are not a terrible issue. oh yeah, I used a nonstretch ridge rope with 2 loops for consistant drape every time.

I wouldn't imagine it would be wise to carry anything sharp into any hammock. Saying that, I have not had any issues so far with my GT UL and I bought mine used. I replaced the suspension with whoopie slings and tree straps so that it would be lighter and it is a very comfortable hammock.
At $20 for this hammock, you definitely cannot go wrong. It is a great starter hammock for those wanting to try them out, but also many long time hangers still use mine...and I will be one of those too...
