***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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
