I bought this for my teen daughter for car camping and she and her friends fight over who gets to lounge in it. First I bought the hammock at an REI garage sale and then went back for the straps and the mosquito netting. It's very easy to set up and the net is very well designed, making it easy to get in and out off. I particularly like that stuff sacks are attached, which makes them impossible to misplace. I wonder, however, why they don't design a flatter hammock with flaps you can release so that your legs can drop down and your back and legs can be paralell with the ground. This would be a welcome innovation. I've yet to sleep the whole night because there was a downpour during our last outing and I had not set a tarp over the hammock. I am encouraged, however, and think this might be a big improvement over the hard ground given my lower back issues. Also, I've been told to use a sleeping pad, particularly in cooler weather, to remain warm.
