So I am definitely going with this contraption over those two other options in the foreseeable future!
A Customer
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.

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 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.

Color Name: Forest Green Verified Purchase
I just bought my third of these Lawson hammocks from this dealer for my son. I have used hammocks all over the world and have been wet and freezing many times. However, this Lawson hammock has never let me down, literally! Three nights ago I slept through a fierce downpour in the Pacific Northwest (San Juan Islands area) and was as dry in the morning as I was all night. I happened to be staying in a campground next to three Hennesey hammocks and a a Clark Jungle hammock. Their owners got up a few time to adjust their rain flys and tighten up things, some even complained about getting wet the next morning.

These hammocks have a few money saving features from the manufacturer but the main components and the rigging are top notch. My Brother made a few changes in the overall rigging to allow me to hang my hammock quicker, using carbiners and some tree savers and such.

Great piece of equipment, I like it much better than the sleeping position of any of the gathered ends hammocks, Hennesey and Clark included.

I bought one of these about 10 years ago and used it frequently but the grommets are pulling loose so I just bought another.

Compared to the older one, the new one's hammock fabric seems about half the thickness and is now very slippery-(annoying); the steel end rings where all the lines join are replaced by loops of rope; the rain fly zipper is gone and you have to slip under the fly to unzip the mesh and enter and then try to reattach the velcro from inside-(annoying) and the mesh zipper is flimsier so I needed to use both hands to close it instead of just one in the older tent; the three piece fiberglass tent poles are replaced by shock corded aluminum ones and the sleeves are almost continuous instead of a bunch of separate loops-(great improvements); the rainflys brass hooks are now plastic, there's an extra storage pocket and a light-loop above your head; new camo pattern, a few strap tabs along one side to clip a foam mat to-(leak source);

The slipperiness was very annoying and I thinned some seam sealer and painted stripes across it to help.

I was in it through some heavy thunderstorms and like the old one the seam joining the top and bottom curves up to form a little gutter which somehow collects water even under the fly and I saw water drops forming on the short nylon strap pieces inside and rolling across the bottom, wetting my sleeping bag in the butt area. I had a similar problem with the old one but since I'm almost never in rain that intense, I never tried seam sealing the area. Lighter rain was never a problem.
