It's very light and it's also very comfortable.

My original review when owning this for a couple of days (I gave it 5 stars) 8/2010: I love this! I didn't even realize it came with the ropes when I purchased it. They make this fully adjustable for various spaces. The instructions for using the ropes are very easy to understand, and I had this up in under a minute. Fabric is cool and breathable, and so easy to wrap up into the attached bag. This is just as good as another brand I had that was double this price! It comfortably supported my husband who is 175 lbs. Ordering another one today and I plan to give many as gifts.

***Update, 5/2011: I purchased 2 of these. After only owning one for 7 months, it split right down the middle, dropping me to the ground. No, I'm not fat, didn't have anything sharp in my pocket, and wasn't using it incorrectly. I contacted the manufacturer who wanted me to pay to ship it back to them so they could mail me a replacement. I didn't feel like paying $6.00+ to ship an item that was only $16 to begin with, so I just took it as a loss, and used my second one cautiously. Yesterday, the second one I own (which is now 10 months old) just did the exact same thing and split right down the middle as the first! This is VERY thin, and there's just no way that it can withstand multiple uses over a long period of time. Invest in one that is thicker. So disappointed because I LOVED it at first. Guess you get what you pay for. Be careful!!

***Update, 6/29/2011: After both of mine ripped, I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commission. I felt like maybe there was an issue with the manufacturing and wanted to make sure no one else would get hurt. They sent my report to Grand Trunk, and I received a call from their office. The guy I spoke to was extremely friendly and apologetic.

The material quality is about what you would expect for the price. There are no carabiners included and it instead comes with hooks. That being said it is more comfortable than far more expensive ones. Ditch the hooks, use carabiners. These hammocks do not pinch you inward making it very comfortable.

A tip to you campers, use just one line between points (utilize a prusik knot for tension) and let the hammock drape from that single rope. You can now use that same line for your rain fly or your mosquito netting. You save on weight and you don't have to cut your rope.

I uploaded video to a popular website (wink) of the hammock and how to use the single line method with a mosquito net! I tried posting the links but Amazon deleted them. Search under "Grand Trunk Ultra Light Hammock" and you should be able to find 3 of them.

If it came with carabiners I would have given 5 stars.

i dont care what any of the other reviews said cause im 230 lbs and i took this fine little diddy with me on a four day hike/fishing/camping trip in the catskills and it held up to my fat ass and believe me im not a gentle guy i figure it was under 20 bucks if it breaks it breaks and to no avail it held up perfectly fine! it was more than fine this thing is so comfortable you can lay any which way once you get your balance down its great you can wrap yourself up like a cocoon and keep the bugs or breeze out or even if you gotta pick your nose and there are alot of people around. i love this hammock and would suggest it to anyone under the 250 lbs rating of course

This is a great product if you are curious about this style of hammock and are skeptical still because you don't know if you will like it. My buddy has a high quality kind of the same style that he takes on every backpacking trip he goes on, that way he does not need to pack a sleeping mat or tent (he also has a rain fly for his that he purchased separately). I never tried his out but liked the idea so much that I searched for one of the cheapest hammocks of this style and this is the one I found. I actually love it, but the ropes it came with are not too practical because they are quite short which limits the versatility of where to put it up, but you can get any other length of rope for pretty cheap almost anywhere that will make this much more versatile.

The first time I used it I set it up at a children's park in between the play structures while my brother had baseball practice. I just wanted to test it by laying in it and reading a book, but when I sat in it something popped and it fell slightly. It ended up being because of the way the construction of the hook is attached to the hammock. I am 6'2" and 145lbs (so I doubt it will hold 300lbs comfortably but I could be wrong). When this happened it didn't break, but it frayed the rope attached to the hammock a little bit. Since then I have yet to have a problem. It IS pretty comfortable and I actually carry it with me in my school backpack when attending college, that way I can kick back and relax or study outside whenever the weather permits it.

I would recommend this item, like I said, to anyone who is skeptical about this style and doesn't want to invest in an expensive one. I hope this was helpful to you, the other reviews were for me...

This really is a terrific hammock and is a steal at the price they are going for. I've been using mine for months and below are some points based on my experience with it so far:

Quality: This hammock is extremely lightweight and not built as tough as some others out there. While very light, the material seems to be of good quality and has held up well so far. They've really given you a lot of material, as I can nearly wrap myself up in it, burrito-style, when lying in it. (Reviewer is 6'2" and 185 lbs. for reference) The edges are nicely finished and the ends are nicely and securely bound. When lying in it, there do seem to be points at which the fabric is more stressed than others, but I can't find any rips or tears in the fabric or at the stitching after much use. The hammock comes with a set of knotted cord to use for suspension between points. They could be a bit longer to suit me, but have performed just fine. Despite the relatively narrow gauge cord, they are high quality and have not abraded or stretched unusually. The hammock comes with 'S' hooks rather than carabiners, but they work well.

Lightweight: As I mentioned, this is one light hammock. It may not matter if you're using it in your back yard, but this baby is a real weight-saver if you are packing it in on your back. It packs to nearly nothing in terms of size, and in terms of size and weight it amounts to about the same as three pairs of hiking socks. It is hard to beat for a minimalist trip to the back country in fair weather. Should it get wet, or after you wash it, it dries super quick, providing a bit of sun...

Comfort: There really is nothing like the slumber you get gently swaying in a hammock. The only thing I can compare it to is the sleep one gets on a gently rocking boat.
