I have been backpacking for about three or four years now, usually averaging several overnight hikes and two or three big trips (50+ miles) each year. I've never owned a hammock, but have seen, used, and napped in hammocks belonging to my friends before. So when I saw the price, reviews, and specs for this I had to jump on it. It only took three business days for it to arrive at my apartment, and I immediately set it up in my living room (had to get creative). I love all the features and the fact that it holds so much weight. I'll never lose the stuff sack as it is attached to the hammock itself. It also came with stickers and a nice little koozie =). This will definitely accompany me on all my trips from now on. It is lightweight and made of extremely durable material. Can't wait to get out in the brush with it.
