I like it, its a good stand but I do wish it was lighter. I also wish the carry bag was made differently. Its from a company that has great customer service and a lifetime warranty, so is a smart choice.
TRUNKTECH™ Hammock Closeout
I had this hammock for 7 years, my parents gave me this when I was young before I though much of camping
I outgrew, because it became a bit small and I sold it in near perfect condition as I upsized (I was 6ft)
The quality and strength of the hammock and net is great, just make sure it is long enough for you
Here are some personal stories of its great quality:
When I was young messing around still leaning the limits of hammocks my sibling was seining me wildly, and I was swinging with it too much and flipped out of the hammock while inside the net, fortunately I was only 3ft from the ground, the net was suddenly pulled to its limit with most of my weight on three points but it didn’t tear and I was able to unzip it and get out without harming the net
Myself with 2 friends when younger (around 100lbs) would wildly swing and bounce around (hammock flipped so the bug net was out of the way), never tore or had issue with weight
My brother with his own same type of hammock slept walked and tried getting out of the hammock as if there was no bug net, with all the sleeping gear flipped onto the net as he stood up thru the net the net tore where he was but not where his water bottle, blankets, and flash light hung suspended in the net. He used the hammock even after the torn net with no further issues
After upgrading to a bigger hammock I needed a bigger rain tarp, I had the older smaller version before and I loved the diamond setup for the hammock after looking into other tarps for hammocks I liked the diamond style the best and booth this one. This rain fly is amazing, sturdy, light, and easy to setup.
One suggestion for an improvement, add loops or hooks on the inside of the tarps along the main line for hammock bug nets to use and attach to
Grand trunk products are all amazing
I bought this to carry for wildlife photography, when sitting is better not only for my back but for a low profile when photographing animals in the wild. I am hoping the fabric will relax just a bit with use, as getting the seat onto the supports was difficult the first time because my hand strength is not a great as it used to be. I chose this stool because of the rotation feature, and because the folded length is half that of regular tripod stools.
