Design: Hammock with bug net
Ease of Setup: Very easy
Weight: 20 oz

Just got this last week and haven't used it on the trail yet. I will update this review after trail use but I strung up the hammock and looked it over.
Bought this for my 11 yr old son. I purchased a Hammock Bliss for myself and reviewed that.
This looks like a nice piece of equipment. It is very easy setup and looks to be durable. It is very stable and light at 20 oz.
I bought Hammock Bliss tree straps and they are great. I'm also working on a Tyvek bivy for winter camping.
Overall first impression; I recommend it.
I'll let you know more after we hit the trails and rivers.
