The Blue Ridge Camping Hammock by Lawson Hammock is a unique, hybrid tent-hammock that has been rated #1 on the market by leading publications like Backpacker and Outside. It was recently the recipient of the prestigious Gear Of The Year Award by 50 Campfires. The patented design allows for use suspended, as a hammock, or on the ground, as a tent, greatly increasing camping terrain options that are often limited by the type of shelter you’re using. The spreader bar and arch pole system also keeps the bed of the hammock flatter and more taut, eliminating much of the uncomfortable “cocoon” and “banana” effect created by most hammocks. The Blue Ridge Camping Hammock has attached bug netting and a rainfly that attaches directly to the hammock, so no need for additional trees for tying off a tarp or staking. Without the arch poles it can be used as an ""open/regular"" hammock for lounging in the sun. Lightweight, easy to set up and perfect for all types of camping or anyone looking for a comfortable, bug/water proof place to relax or sleep. Very roomy interior; bed of hammock is approx. 90""x42"". Weight capacity 275 lbs. Elevate your camping game with a Lawson Hammock!

Preparing for one week trip to Boundary Waters; I've slept in this hammock a few times overnight to work out any issues.
1. I really need those side tie-downs. The stability is awesome with those. And, you don't need all four. Just two works fine. I'm more than happy to deal with those with the incredible comfort this product supplies. I've slept on my back, side and belly with no issues at all.
2. The space is incredible! The little rings that hang down inside can be easily tied together with some cord for a long "ridge line" to secure things to.
3. I bought a 10X10 tarp because I like the open air. I am also worried about having to set up or tear down in the rain. I still bring the Lawson Tarp in case the wind is very very bad or the rain decides to come sideways. Love the Larson Tarp, I just don't want to be so bottled up.
4. This is my under quilt: OutdoorsmanLab Lightweight Camping Sleeping Bag. I used wife's sewing machine and stitched on some webbing and shock cord. A few clips. And there you go. Its a perfect summer under quilt. I don't need my ThermoRest now.
5. Had a simple issue upon purchase and the owner of Lawson fixed it immediately without any hesitation. GREAT CUSTOMER SVC!
I LOVE THIS HAMMOCK. Pics are from my backyard.
UPDATE: after my trip to the Boundary Waters I learned a lot.
1. IF you like a lay flat like me, I keep the hammock tightly pulled between the trees. Needs guy lines.
2. IF you like a more traditional curved lay. It is more stable and does not need guy lines.
3. This is not an ultra light set up. The weight really added up over the miles. OK for me, not for everybody.
This is not really an ultra light hammock as it comes with a bug net, rain fly, shock cord poles, spreader bars and heavy gauge rope, but no tree straps. I swapped the heavy rope out with Dynaglide and that saves nearly half a pound but still around 4.25 lbs after that conversion. Each spreader bar is nearly a pound so I'm contemplating upgrading to some carbon fiber bars. Regardless, that weight may be heavy for a hammock but is very light for a tent and compared to all the other junk we carry. I used Kammock straps in the photos but may try lighter tree straps and whoopie slings which are pretty cheap on ebay. I also leave the sleeping bag in the hammock and roll the whole thing up into a larger stuff sack for pretty fast setup.
I will admit I did fall out of the hammock while slightly tipsy and reaching for my water bottle several feet away on the ground as seen in photos. But I had no issues with stability while sleeping or getting in and out several times in the night. There are corner holes for tying it up for more stability, you could easily just have one stake with four taut line hitch lines going to the corners and still have a fast setup. But then you sort of lose the ability to use it like a chair and swing. From the videos of this product I've seen, it only looks unstable when they have the hammock stretched too tight and that may be what others are experiencing.
The big inside pockets made a great drink holder and the spreader bars make it very wide and roomy.
For the tarp I leave it attached and throw it back halfway where I can reach out and pull it back when the sun comes up or if it starts to rain. When the tarp is over you there is more air insulation but the end mesh is still open for air to pass through.
You can use it as a mini tent on the ground if there are no trees though there will be much less interior space.
For the next model upgrade I would suggest it have lighter materials and loops inside the corners to hold the sleeping bag in place so there is less shifting around to get comfortable when you get in and out.
Pretty solid little package, and cheap compared to some of the high end hammocks.
it's also very hard to get a breeze, which is easy in this beautiful Lawson that i miss so much.
you don't feel like you're going to rip it in half every time you get in.
you don't have to worry about ripping flimsy straps off that hold the bugnet up, suspended by another line because they didn't have the engineering foresight that Lawson clearly does with it's simple bugnet suspension system.
if you can afford it, get this hammock. if you can't - get an anti-gravity recliner or cheap hammock and just suspend a cheap bugnet around it. look at how people are 'relaxing' in these 50$ bugnet hammocks and you will see that it's not comfortable at all unless you like playing larva in a cocoon.
