No, would be super hot! This is not the type of material you want to be enclosed inside. Go with silk, or a coolmax material.
This thing is HUGE! Has big pockets on the bottom of each corner that keep this bad boy in place. Was at the beach with some whipping wind and it stayed put. Sand didn't stick to it and it stuffs into the attached pouch, just like their hammocks do. My wife thought it would be good at the baseball game last weekend and she was right, can't wait to take it to summer concerts. People are always asking where i got it and of course i tell them the "Goat" helped me out!
This review just isn't fair, especially comparing the entire Travel Hammock line based on the review of this product. By the way, every review from him is negative....something smells fishy and it's not his breath hopefully. Let's face it, this is a inexpensive product, what do you want?? As for the other brands mentioned, you have to look at the products that are actually competing products. Such as the Travel Hammock parachute nylon hammock that kicks ass! It's bigger, stronger and has a better price than the eagles nest hammock. Plus, the warranty is the best there is, 10 years. Not to mention the fact that the Travel Hammock gives you a FREE hammock hanging kit, which Mr. Big also complained about, I guess he likes to pay for something you should get included with the product. Either way you look at it, the Ultralight Hammock is a nice, lightweight product that is extremely affordable.
I have to write a rebuttle to the unfair posting by Mr Big, whom obviously works in the hammock business and is taking a shot at The Travel Hammock. First of all, the Ultralight hammock is a price-point product, plain and simple, otherwise it wouldn't be $19.99 Second of all, comparing this product to the parachute nylon Travel Hammock just isn't fair. If you were to do this you would find (specifically compared to eagles nest and other parachute nylon hammock makers) that the Travel Hammock is made by the original manufacturer of parachute nylon hammocks and is simply the best made. It's actually made in a hammock making factory, not a furniture and gift maker shop. The size is longer, wider and has been independently lab tested to hold 400lbs. Not to mention the fact that they include a FREE hammock hanging kit (not trying to force you to purchase an additional rope kit, like eagles nest) and offer a no worries 10 year warranty...have you tried to return an eagles nest hammock? Finally, let's talk about price. The Travel Hammock is at least a 25-30% saving over eagles nest when you include the FREE hammock hanging kit. So Mr. Big I would challenge you to try and prove these facts wrong and in your defense, at least you didn't recommend a Hammock Bliss hammock, otherwise I would have to call the opinion police on you.
Bought one of these recently and couldn't love it more. Also have to mention the ATTACHED waterproof stuff sack. Great design and amazing price!
i've been hammock camping for a while and have finally found the Cadillac of portable hammocks! the bc.com write up does not do this product justice, i actually bought it by mistake. because of this hammock i was able to get rid of my tarp, footprint, bivy and other hammock. it can be used for all of these things. it weighs 222 ounces and comes with rope to use as a hammock. oh yeah, it was a cold mountain night and most hammocks allow a frigid breeze on your bottom side, but this one is a waterproof rip stop and doesn't seem to get cold...COOL PRODUCT!
