Grand Trunk Ultralight Hammock
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $12
It was light and easy to pack and durable.
- Easy to pack
- You had to lay in it diagonally
I used this on a backpacking trip. It was an easy setup and tear down.
I didn't like that I had to lay diagonally in it, but for the price I couldn't beat it. An ENO hammock, if you can afford it, is more comfortable for sleeping in.

Perfect starter hammock.
- S hooks
If you are looking for a compact, lightweight, affordable, and well made hammock... look no further. This is a great hammock you can throw in your bag whether you are going to the beach or on a backpacking trip. Super easy to set up.
The only downside is the S hooks that come with it. They work great, but they don't have clips and are a touch heavy... but other than that, this is great buy!

Extremely inexpensive intro hammock that seems to have a very solid design. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a way to launch into hammock camping.
- Stuff sack sewn to hammock
- S hooks are heavy and need to be replaced
- No cables or hardware for hanging
- Very thin
Just like most hammocks, this item is extremely easy to setup if you have the right hardware (whoopieslings!).
The key thing to keep in mind is that this is an ultralight, ultra thin hammock. Be extremely careful with the care of this item as it has been known for some people to split down the middle.
My hammock is still operating fine after a few months use.
