Inexpensive Portable Hammock - No Trees Required

Bought a couple of these a few months back and I was worried they wouldn't hold my 210 pounds but they have performed very well.

For about a hundred bucks you can get two and they have lifetime warranty.

They literally setup in minutes.

With one's feet hanging over the hammock main body they are too short to comfortably sleep in. If there are spreader bars in the ends staying in them may also be an issue. OTOH the posting may be a bit of astroturfing as I have seen the same comment in several forums related to some part of the outdoor industry...

I'm 5'11" and I find them comfortable. Just like with any hammock you have to get used to how it balances. I'd prefer a real hand made Hammock from Costa Rica to hang between two trees, but most of the parks we visit don't have that luxury. These things deploy quickly and swing.

We'll see how long they last. Lifetime warranty was a bonus.

Not the most portable option but it works.

I'm more the gathered end hammock type so this would be my type https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...st-and-most-po

If you are serious about a hammock to sleep in wander around on Hammmockforums.com. You can learn way more than you want to know. Particularly so if you dig into some of the older threads. That includes information on portable stands.

FWIW those bipod stands are aimed at the under 200 lb folks who are essentially backpacking. That includes the bike and canoe/kayak folks where weight and bulk are issues. If you are not dealing with those limitations there are several different versions of stands with a top bar and tripod or bipod ends that will do a better job and handle significantly higher loads without getting into the weight and bulk of something like a Pawleys Island rope hammock and steel stand.

In general any spreader bar hammock is more prone to dumping their user out than any gathered end. The balance is the spreader bar lets one use a shorter length or sprawl flatter.
