The best of part of it all is how how compact it is and even when packed it can still be molded to fit around in my backpack. In a lot of posts, I've only see people taking pictures from top down of the packed size and it really doesn't tell the full picture. The side view shows the size much better. Also, while the Grand Trunk (even with with the sling packed too) can be squeezed to conform to different shapes, my 11' Double from WildHorn Outfitters is completely dense and doesn't squish any smaller at all.
If I were going on a camping trip I would definitely take the larger WildHorn because it's super comfortable. However, if I'm just going for an afternoon in the park, the Grand Trunk is perfect.
The metal S hooks and the gathered end cordage are a bit overkill in size and weight for this type of hammock. IF you plan on using this for more "serious" hangs (I'd recommend other models by far, though), you'll be better served with a closing attachment clip like a full-strength carabiner. Lighter cord, like good paracord (whoppie slings are superb, but again, overkill for this level of hang IMO), would also be beneficial at the ends. In general, Grand Truck's gathered end support material is a bit over-the-top in weight across their lineup in my opinion (esp. on the Skeeter Beater Pro), but it's cost-effective to produce. The system is also not as easy to fine-tune as it could be. Again, a whoopie sling suspension would make it easier, however, I recognize that all of this really pushes a cheap hammock beyond the scope of it's original intention. These add-ons would easily costs more than the hammock itself.
I leave two straps in the trees out back and I throw this up to lounge while tossing disks with my dogs, etc. I don't think I'd recommend this for an overnight or extended camping trip as it's not the most comfortable or feature-rich hammock out there. However, lightening up the ends with paracord and biners, could make this a great emergency/BOB companion. I'll likely toss a modified-end version of this in my day pack along with an emergency bivy as a just-in case-shelter. At least you'd be semi cumfy and off the ground if a forced overnight crept up on you.
If you're wanting something that you plan on also using for camping, etc., I'd look higher up the ladder. I own several hammocks including some from Clark Jungle Hammocks, Wilderness Logics and Warbonnet Outdoors, but in the bang-for-buck (esp. for newer hangers) arena, the Grand Trunk Skeeter Beater Pro is hard to beat. It'll run you about $50 or so more as of this post, but it's bigger, has a higher load rating, is more comfortable and includes integrated mosquito netting. As with this hammock, the Pro needs modified ends to make setup and adjustment easier and the overall package lighter, but it's not necessary out of the box. I WOULD however replace the included heavy metal clips with some full-strength climbing biners (about $5 each or so) to knock some quick ounces off. It will run you another $20 or so to exchange the gathered end system to a Whoopie sling mod, but it's worth the money for me.
I want to get a few more nights in the backcountry in the Pro before writing my review, but it's a great hammock so far and if you're looking for something more versatile, it's a great option to consider.
So, a day at the river/lake, something to toss up in the backyard, or as a decent emergency shelter in a day pack, this is a good investment for the money. If you you're thinking more toward overnight stays, I'd highly recommend moving up the line some.
One thing to note is that this hammock is a little shorter and narrower than most hammocks. That makes it a little less roomy if you're used to a doublewide hammock.
Another thing to note is that the hammock uses S-hooks to attach to suspension. Personally I prefer carabiners: I've never had this hammock come unhooked, but it is a fear in the back of my mind. You can buy carabiners for it if it bothers you enough. Also note the weight limit is 200 pounds. You can't snuggle with your sweetie in this hammock, it's for solo use only.
I take this hammock on camping trips. It's great for relaxing in after a long hike, and cheap enough you don't have to worry about dirtying it up like more expensive hammocks. If I'm sleeping in a tent it keeps my gear off the ground, and only adds a pound to my pack.
It's a great deal for the price, but know you'll have to buy suspension separately, and hanging straps can cost more than this hammock does!
