Grand Trunk Single Parachute Nylon Hammock
I wasn't sure what to expect as this is my first hammock.
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: 40-45$
I wasn't sure what to expect as this is my first hammock. I found a good deal and absolutely love it. I now use it for summer and winter camping with wool blankets and a crazy creek chair under my sleeping bag. Perfect setup, and realized after having this, that while other brands are more popular, Grand Trunk provides a superb product!
- Convenient with tree straps
- Heavy carabiners
Setup: Couldn't be easier, loop the rope through tree straps, and hook to carabiner.
Packability: Extremely compact, fits nicely with extra room in the attached bag. One Caveat: I keep waiting for a hammock maker to get smart and move the bag to one end of the hammock so you're not letting the hammock fabric touch the ground while packing up.
Construction & Durability: I've used the Skeeter Beater Pro and the single and love the durability of the single!
Conditions: Cold, hot, woods, urban, used it monthly for over a year and couldn't be happier!
Great hammock to bring on any camping or backpacking…
Great hammock to bring on any camping or backpacking trip. Great camp comfort item.
- Packs small
- Finding the right trees for setup
I would highly recommend bringing a hammock, especially when backpacking. There's many times when you just want a place to relax when in the backcountry.
Great item for relaxing, reading a book, or use it like a chair. It's a very versatile item for camp comfort.
My kids love this thing, my wife enjoyed lounging in. It's great because it packs down to about the size of a Nalgene bottle.
The only problem with a hammock is having an area to hang it. Mine came with a tree hanging kit.
