    "All in the name"

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this as a gift, for my cousin Eddie. Here's what he has to say :

    "It is all in the name. The hammock is super light and easy to pack. It is so nice to just throw it in your bag and actually think that you forgot to pack it. I was a little skeptical at first because I didn’t think the hammock would be able to hold my weight because it was so thin. It has proved me wrong so far. Surprisingly strong. Although it is a single person hammock recommended for up to 200lbs, my girlfriend and I (150lbs + 90lbs) successfully laid in this pretty comfortably. I like that the bag is sewn into the hammock, making it impossible to lose and also creating a nifty pouch on the side for cell phones, water bottles, or any other little trinkets, when laying down. (Negatives: Some camping hammocks have extra material on the sides to wrap around your body to keep bugs out, like a cocoon. This one does not.) But it is perfect for lounging in the sun/shade."

    Just Hangin' Around

      My buddy has been bringing his hammock camping for the last few seasons. It's always the most popular piece of equipment in camp. So, I finally decided that I needed one too. I bought the ultralight because I just don't need one that holds more than 200 lbs. It's light; packs small; and the attached stuff-sack makes a great drink holder. I'm replacing the "S" hooks with biners but that's the only thing I would change. Worth the money.

      Can't wait for summer

        I bought this hammock to add to my backpacking gear. Thought I would give it a shot and try something different instead of being on the ground. The material looks really thin but for the price I can't complain to much. And reading all the other reviews it seems like a decent one to start with. Can't wait for summer to try it out, I till then I'll try it out in my shop.

        Awesome for starters

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This was my first hammock. I still use is from time to time. Its great because its fairly inexpensive and very, very durable. It isn't the most packable thing in the market though. I have it, two carabiners, and some cord to hang it up all packed in the built in stuff sack. It is about the size of a small burrito from Chipotle.
        The only other issue I had with it to start was having to lay in it diagonally, instead of straight from the two hanging points. Its like a balancing act when first trying to use it, But it still gets used EVERY time I go out.

        Never leave home without it

        After a long day alpine climbing along the Liberty bell group in Washington state my first task back at camp was a nap. I tied to a tree and the back of my van.

        A valuable addition to any daypack

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        On a last minute hike up to Sundial Peak outside of Salt Lake City I picked up this hammock. I was initially concerned with it's light demeanor but don't you worry this is built for adventure.

        It's simple hook system on each end makes set up a breeze when combined with two pieces of cordage and the built in stuff sack makes it a compact size perfect for the corner of your pack. I am 6ft and 225lbs, its comfortable and durable beyond my expectation.

        On an alpine mission in the North Cascades of Washington state my friend forgot her tent. I put an ultralight shelter above it and she snuggled in for a restful night.

        This hammock is a reminder that sometimes simple design is the best design.

        Held Up

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        My initial concern with purchasing this hammock was the durability. After a few campouts and day hang out trips I am extremely happy for not springing for a more expensive hammock. I have taken great care to make sure not to place the hammock in a scenario where it may have abrasion leading to retirement as that seems to the major complaint with this hammock. In other words if you are careful, the only reason to consider a more expensive hammock would be if you desire to have a wider footprint. (hanging straps are not included)

        comfy for lazy days or on the trail.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        the hammock is very light weight you wouldnt believe it will hold your weight but it does.the size is so compact and ultralight i barely know its in my pack. the material is very durable but that doesnt you should tested by laying with a open knife on your back. keys are probabaly as far as it goes. i am 5'11" 190lbs and the lenghtand widght of this hammack is fine more then enough. head room

        Going on 2 years

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Going on 2 years with this hammock, its been through many long nights of camping, backpacking, and a week long Yosemite trip! This thing is awesome, lightweight and overall great on the wallet too.

        Awesome light hammock!

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

        I've used this hammock for no more than 2 hours and I've already spilled beer on it and poked it numerous times with a pointy stick. No visible damage. I weigh 160 and it supports me with no sign of breakage whatsoever. This thing seems pretty durable to me and for the price I am really quite happy with it! Do I plan on hiking the AT with it? No, but I may fall asleep in it this evening.

        Awesome light hammock!

        Want to try hammock camping? Sure!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I picked this up, mostly to spite my buddies who were preaching ENO. I didn't want to buy a pricy hammock and hate it on the trail.

        Its very packable, but I try to keep the S hooks out away from the hammock when packed. I have used it less than 10 nights total, and I have already developed a rip or two (and I was trying to be careful!). Its also super light, which is nice. It rained for 3 days on my last trip, but my hammock dried out quick under the rainfly.

        My first hike out was...chilly. I only brought a fleece blanket, which was silly on my part, knowing that it would be in the mid 60's that evening. I never thought about how much the air inside my old tent insulated me. My feet froze! My next trip out (night temps in the low 50's), I had my sleeping bag and a therm-a-rest pad that I had cut down to fit inside my bag. Worked like a charm! They are not kidding when they say that you need extra insulation beneath you in a hammock, don't learn the hard way!

        Now I am a stomach sleeper, but I slept on my side for most of my nights in this thing. The therm-a-rest pad acted as a good base if I rolled around at all inside my sleeping bag (I'm somewhat small)and I didn't have to grab the edges of the hammock to make sure I wasn't going to spill out. Without a 'base', I rolled around a lot more, and woke up fully each time to think about the move.

        Great perk, my back was saved from sleeping on the flat ground. Even after packing through the hills, my back was nice and fresh. My ground sleeping companions weren't as lucky.

        Overall. I like this hammock a lot. I wish it did not rip so easily, but it was a great first hiking hammock for me!

        Hope your experience is better than mine

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

        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.

        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.

        So because it dosent come with ropes and hanging equipment, are the rope kits simple enough to just tie yourself with your own rope?

        Will, it comes with the ties and the S-hooks, which are very easy to use-- could easily combine them with trunk straps (Grand Trunk makes some, as does Hammock Bliss) or some lightweight cord or straps of your own.

        Let me know if you have any other questions- I'd be happy to help!

        does this hammock come with the ropes to hang it?

        NO. mine just came with the fabric tied off to two s-hooks. I used a seperately purchased nonstretch rope for a ridgeline and tied two loops in the middle for a consistant drape in the hammock. You can also purchase hanging kits, just depends on how much you wanna spend.
