Ultralight Hammock

rated 4 of 5 stars I don't always sleep in a hammock, but when I do, I sleep in this one. My son and I found this hammock tangled up thirty feet in a tree in the middle of nowhere. I have no idea how it got there (windstorm?), but retrieving it was pretty challenging. Gear adrift is a gift, as they say in the Marines. I have just kind of kept it around and never got to use it till this summer with the clones on an easy hike. I stuffed it in Child #2's pack, because there was no room in the tent, and made him the guinea… Full review

Double Parachute Nylon Hammock

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfy, lightweight hammock for backpacking. Just received an early Christmas present from my sweet boyfriend. We set it up in the yard yesterday and I am in love with this product already! Cannot wait to take it backpacking and try it out. It's very comfy, beautiful Hibisbus Floral's awesome!! We will be swapping out the standard carabiners that came with it as they are really too heavy for backpacking. Also, it came with some rope, will be switching to straps, hopefully orange ones :).

Skeeter Beeter Pro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great hammock. It keeps the bugs off of you, but can feel claustrophobic. It is easy to hang once you get the hang (no pun intended) of it. It is a bit small to sleep diagonally if you are tall. Overall a great deal for the money. I have used this hammock in my backyard as well as on the trail. I have slept in it when there were so many mosquitoes out that I could see the clouds of them, but this hammock kept me free from any bites. Hanging the netting portion of the hammock can be difficult… Full review

Trunk Straps

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Grand Trunk's “Trunk Straps” are a well-made, convenient suspension system for front country hammock hanging. It eliminates the need to know hammock knots or the need to buy other suspension systems that come with a learning curve. The straps are best for hammocks relying on carabiners for hanging. I definitely feel the pros outweigh the cons for car camping applications. First, a word on tree straps: My first hammock came with two lengths of 6mm prusik cord to hang the hammock with. I didn't… Full review

Ultralight Hammock

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A great deal on a decent lightweight hammock. After enjoying a post-hike hang in a buddy's hammock my last time out, I'd been thinking of getting a lightweight hammock. I ran across the Grand Trunk Ultralight at Cabela's for $19.99 and couldn't resist.  Unlike the reviews below, mine came with a suspension.   The hammock itself is polyester, 114" long, 54" wide, and weighs in at 12.2 oz. including the two S-hooks which weigh 1 oz each.  The integrated stuff sack serves as a pocket while hung.
