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
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
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. Full review
A luxury item that is well worth the weight. After a night sleeping on a hard shelter floor I looked for alternatives and hammocks seemed like a good idea. Those really nice high end backpacking hammock systems with netting and flies were what I wanted, but I couldn't justify the cost. I bought the Grand Trunk lightweight hammock, but it was just a bit small so I upgraded to this hammock. I only use it during warm weather but I've slept very comfortably under the stars on dry nights and hanging… Full review
A basic hammock. Not great, but not bad either. The material seems somewhat plastic-ish, sort of like the material that cheap tents are made of, but maybe slightly better. I felt like I was going to fall through it the first time that I sat in it (and most times since), but I've slept in it a few nights so far, and it's worked flawlessly. I have a larger parachute-type hammock that feels much more stable, durable, is much larger, and is significantly more comfortable in my opinion, but it's also… Full review
