I took this out for an initial field test this weekend. Aside from being a noob to hammock camping, I don’t really have any complaints. I have 2 other hammocks that we’ve put up just to sit in and those both needed to be adjusted after a few minutes due to sagging. This one stayed up for 2 days and nights, sleeping in it both nights, and never needed to be adjusted.
It was actually a cold weather test, so I didn’t really need the bug net. I kinda wished there was a zipper I could unzip and either stow it in the ends of the hammock, or remove it completely. But that was my purchase choice as I know this will get a lot of use in the summer time when we will have more than enough bugs to keep out. There is plenty of room in the stuff sack which is a big deal for me. I don’t want to spend 10 minutes trying to stuff my hammock back in the sack when we are getting ready to break camp and move out. Lord knows there’s enough things to stuff in a sack when packing up to spend unnecessary time doing it. And the compression straps help reduce the size even more without much effort. I really like that.
The straps are very strong and have plenty of adjustment points. The carabiners are of good quality and match the rest of the gear really well.
I’ll have to update my review after I am able to set up my bug net and give it a proper test. But I can tell it is well thought out. Strong zipper, 2 built in ridgeline loops, and places under those to hang gear such as a flashlight. The ridge line tie-outs are a bit on the short and cheap side. But I had planned on replacing them with paracord and carabiners anyway.
Overall, it is a great hammock and I am very pleased with it.
