I purchased a camouflage version of the Lawson Hammock. I camp regularly as a youth leader and while hunting. (12-20 times year) I also happen to suffer from some back problems so sleeping on the ground has never been comfortable unless I am car camping and bring a cot ad/or large air mattress. I have found that the Lawson is the best way to hike-camp when you need to pack light and still want a full shelter. There are other products ($) on the market but this hammock meets my needs and then some. I have no experience with some of the more expensive hammock shelters so I cannot compare. The quality of the Lawson is great. Because of the stresses placed on the material when the hammock is occupied I fear that the zipper could be the first to fail me, but to date, I have had no malfunctions. My biggest concern was the cold from under the hammock. However, I found a solution that may help others. Inflatable pads like the Big Agnes Insulated Air Core or the Therma Rest Neo Air are a great addition and add little weight to your pack. These products help to keep the cold off of your back and provide some added comfort. Keep in mind that the Lawson Hammock uses a tent material for the hammock and some have already mentioned the slick surface. I can confirm this. The Lawson design (similar to many back yard hammocks) does not create a cradle or mummy around you. The metal stays create a flatter surface. This is good for comfort but adds to the slip and slide sensation. I will admit this was an issue for me at first. Lawson provides metal clips to be attached inside the hammock around the inside perimeter. The included directions advise you to clip an emergency blanket or bed role inside the hammock to block out the cold.Read more ›

I went camping for the first time with this hammock on a lake in the Cascades outside of Seattle in early in June. It rained all night the second night and I stayed dry, while my friends on the ground all got a bit wet due to problems with inadequate flys, etc. It was a noisy night with the rain hitting the hammock fly, but again very dry. I had some gear under the hammock that also stayed fairly well protected from the rain.

I have two gripes about the hammock. Both result from the fact that it is designed to allow for the fly and therefore to function like a tent. This all-in-one design requires the use of stretch bars at both ends of the hammock and these bars create a flatter surface than that of a traditional hammock. That flatter surface creates a couple of problems. It is a harder surface to sleep on. You need a pad for comfort and warmth even though you are not on the ground. And worst of all, the whole thing is vulnerable to flipping over if you move outside the center of gravity inside of the hammock when you turn over in the night. I found myself waking up needing to roll over and having to hang on to the side of the tent/hammock tightly as I gingerly repositioned myself.

Also, because is has a flatter surface, you can't lie at an angle or somewhat perpendicular to the line of the hammock to straighten out, and as a result your feet and head are always above the center of your body. Not a big deal, but does make for stiff knees in the morning (I am 58 years old). You need to attach another sleeping bag under the hammock to keep warm on chillier nights. This makes for more gear to haul around with you [1-2 pad(s), 2 sleeping bags, one for the under side of hammock, and one for inside, and the hammock itself].

I have had the Lawson hammock (camo) for over a year now. I've taken it on at least 6 backpacking trips that usually last a couple nights. At 4.5 pounds, it is kind of heavy and large for backpacking, but for the price it is worth the extra weight. Many "lightweight" hammocks and tents are over $200 at least.

I probably will never use a ground tent again. As long as I can find 2 suitable trees, I have a place to sleep. I've slept on sloping terrain, above thorn bushes and tree roots, above creek rocks and even puddles. I've found it is much easier to find 2 good trees than it is to find perfect ground (plus you have less impact on the environment). No pressure points on your body or stubborn rocks under your body.

Set up is quick and fairly easy once you've learned how to do it. As with any new gear, you shouldn't set it up for the firt time when you're out in the wilderness. I've learned a few tips to make your night in this hammock great:
1. Ensure the hammock is centered between the trees so your not head high or feet high. Also reduces sliding.
2. Ensure the hammock is very tight. It will sag a little with your weight regardless and the hammock will be more comfortable if it is flat since it uses spreader bars.
3. Keep the rain fly tight and make sure the drip cords are proper. I've slept in it during storms and had little trouble.
4. It is tricky to keep your pack and other gear under the hammock but I have kept my boots inside with me. I recommend using a rain sack and hang the backpack on the tree or use the hip belt to secure it to the tree.
5. To keep warmer during cold weather, use 1/2 of an old sleeping bag or clip a military poncho liner to the bottom of the hammock.
