Versatile Sleep System Combines the Best of Both Worlds - Tents and Hammocks
The Lawson Blue Ridge Camping Hammock is particularly versatile because it can act as a tent or a hammock due to these two features.
The first is two arching support poles for the mosquito netting and rain fly. The arched poles are attached at both ends and lift the top of the hammock up like a elongated dome tent, which gives you enough room to sit up and rummage around easily.
The second key feature is the spreader bar system, which is attached to the ropes at the ends of the hammock and spread the support ropes over a flatter area. This keeps the floor more stable in the air as well as reduces the Hammock sag.
When pitched on the ground, it all comes together to create a small bivy tent.

I took this backpacking and was satisfied with it. Plenty of room for me (5'10 169 lbs) plus all of my gear to be inside with me, but I would not recommend trying to cram another person in here unless you are both very thin side sleepers who plan to house gear outside the tent.
I've only used it on the ground so far and have yet to suspend it between trees. If you plan to use this on a solid surface where you can't stake it in, then you will still need to bring tree straps to wrap around something at each end because the tent part won't stay up if you don't have tension. There is a thin cord where the spreader bars are located that you hook to the arch poles to keep the tent up, and obviously that won't work without the ends anchored down somehow.
It's no 1.5 lb backpacking tent, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper, more versatile and still fit on my 55L pack fine with all other gear inside. I hiked 9 miles, some of it pretty damn rugged, just fine with this thing on my pack. I'm just an average 33 year old mom and not a super athlete, so I think this would work as a decent backpacking tent for most people if you don't want to part with another $200 to save a few pounds of weight.
I laid mine on a stone pad under an open shelter and wrapped one strap around a stone pillar and the other around the bottom of a heavy bench made out of logs and it worked fine, but I feel those thin cords that hold the tent up need to be a bit more heavy duty. Set up was quick and easy. Just be sure to buy a couple good tent stakes and tree straps or you'll be screwed for the reason listed above.
The spot that you wrap the tree straps or rope through did not have a metal ring as I was expecting (the item description never indicated that was the case; it was just my expectation). The cord leading from the spreader bars is looped and knotted where you attach and suspend it. I'm sure it's safe, but I couldn't fully trust it and wouldn't suspend this thing too high off the ground personally.
I was overall happy with the hammock and like the versatility of it which allows me to camp on various terrain. I felt for the price, it would have been nice if it came with tent stakes, tree straps and carabiners, but I am still happy with the product as long as it holds up over time. I'll update the review if I encounter any issues during future trips.
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.
