I finally had the opportunity to try camping with a hammock instead of a tent. I assumed our campsite in the forest would have multiple trees and that I would be able to set this up between two of them. I was a bit surprised to find our site had only one tree, and was surrounded by thick blackberry bushes. Undeterred, and eager to find a way to make it work, I pulled my Land Cruiser up and tied one end of the hammock straps to my roof rack, and the other end around the tree trunk. It worked great!
The quality of this hammock is superb,
Included tree saver straps appear well stitched and super strong. I enjoyed the best night’s sleep of my camping life in this hammock! The integrated bug net worked great and kept the mosquitoes away. The included string for the bug net did not inspire as much confidence as everything else, so I replaced it with some paracord. O suppose the bug net is quite light, and doesn’t require a very strong tether, but felt much more comfortable with the paracord, and not having to worry in the future about the string breaking out in the backcountry in the future. All in all, this is a 5 star hammock package at this price, and I couldn’t be happier. I am recommending it to all of my friends, and planning on adding more of them to our household.
