Immediately when I opened the package I was impressed by the small pack size and lightweight. My previous Grand Trunk had tore after 6 years and I was impressed with quality. The only thing I found disappointing was that the double I just ordered is no bigger than my old grand trunk single.
This latest purchase was our 3rd Grand Trunk hammock. Now each of my children have their own and each hammock has been great! We backpack with our hammocks in the Idaho back country and have loved their comfort, light weight and durability. Thanks for making quality gear we can depend on.
I love my straps and hammok so much!! I can't wait to use them more.
This was the first time hearing about Grand Trunk for me, and they did not disappoint love my new hammock and the straps I just purchased!!!
Great! Useful with ease of use!
Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock
I bought one of these hammocks 5 years ago and it has gone everywhere from the traditional camping trip in my state of North Carolina all the way to Northern Tier on the boundary waters of Minnesota and Canada. The bug net is great at keeping out insects and if you don't need the net then you can flip it over and just use the bottom. I have thrown this hammock around and it only has two holes in it smaller than your pinky. For the price you pay your hammock will outlive any Enos by about 4 lifespans. The Hammock is also lightweight so its great for backpacking.
I have used this one time and love it. Thank you for all your help.
This product is really good. I used it already, it is so comfortable.
Great bag with clever light. Love the various compartments.
I like hotdogs
I am laying comfortably in my Hammoc in my backyard suspended from my apple tree watching the clouds go by this is really fun I think I'm gonna love this!
This is my third GT hammock and I cannot be happier. The material is so strong, the pattern and colors are amazing! Thanks for always having the best hammocks!
The frame only took a few minutes to setup by myself. It came with a carrying bag, but I cannot carry but a few feet, it is that heavy. The hammock is bright and festive. I wish there some directions on how to get out of the hammock.
I am so happy with this hammock stand. The first time I put it together was a little difficult, but each time afterwards was very easy. I love how sturdy it is, and the look of it. I have been hammocking in my house due to the current weather, and have been loving every minute of it. Quite happy with this purchase and the product.
Easy set up and very sturdy!
This is the best mosquito net available. It allows air to flow, It keeps the mosquitoes far away from you and allows you to keep gear in the bottom on the floor. You can get in to the hammock while zipped inside the net standing comfortably. Itallows you to change clothes get in your gear or make afjustments inside. It is very sturdy. I have 2 sons that are 13 and 17 and we have used the same nets for at least 4 seasons with no damage or compromise to the net. They're amazing!
I was pleasantly surprised by this bug net. At first it seemed so much bigger than the bug nets I'm used to, but I liked it for the massive amount of headroom, as well as the integrated ground tarp. It was easy to lay out all my gear and can easily be used for ground camping if needed. I only have 2 criticisms. 1. It is much too large for backpacking (although perfect for car camping, so take that as you choose.) And 2. I would have liked a darker color option besides just white, like gray or black. I would ding it a star for those 2 things, but I have to give it back because it comes with a guyline AND aluminum stakes (the stakes were not listed in the description.) I haven't found another decent bugnet that comes with all the extras. All in all though it is a great bug net and very roomy. Highly recommended if weight and size aren't a problem.
I love my mozzynet! The only thing I found was that I could not pull the cord to string through the top tight enough to keep it up out of my face. I switched it for a couple ratchet/canoe straps and found that to be much more efficient easy way to make it work. I slept like a baby!
I'm pretty short at 5'6"-5'7"; this is perfect for me! Cozy but not too tight! :)
If you're anything over 5'8" you probably won't want this though; go with a longer Hammock/Tarp.
In my case I have no complaints; this will get you hanging without a second mortgage... I did upgrade to Whoopie Slings as the suspension that comes with it is not very tree friendly and quite short. ONE THING I didn't like though; the carabiners that come with it are just no good: straight-up hardware store carabiners with burrs left from machining. I changed them before I even set it up once: I'm convinced they would have wrecked the netting just from stuffing them in the bag: got rid of the loops too and set it up with BD Wiregates straight on the gathered ends: works a charm and I saved a few ounces! :)
All in all this was a great buy and a hell of a lot lighter than my tent!
We bought this set for our boy scout son at least 4 years ago. Wasn't sure on the quality because we had never heard of the brand. Well, I can't say enough good things about this set. He has only camped with this set summer, winter, rain or shine since. It has out performed many other pricier sets. We did end up getting a set of looped hammock straps that were not included. He is now an Eagle scout and heading off to college soon. This set-up is still going strong. I recommend Grand Trunk if anyone asks.
I've personally have had this stool for, I think, over 5 years now. From the Backcountry, at gatherings, festivals, through airports, I've taken it everywhere and it still looks almost new. I had a corporal who carried a very similar one in concept on her pack in the military and this was the only stool I could find with the same design; the bottom part of the legs are open so you can slide it in from the top of a backpack putting the legs into the packs compression straps, for fast & easy deployment and weight distribution. Anyway, this thing is a fantastic little stool, and I'm glad I bought one.
Here is the ultimate light and sturdy stool (four legs are much better) to tuck into a pack, briefcase, or art kit.
It also functions as a footrest or table for the palette. My sketching friends are jealous and want one too. Best of all you get to choose the spot to paint from rather than having to sit on an existing bench or rock. Alternative use: a place to sit down in hot climates (India) , long lines (rush lines theater), intermenable tour guide talks (Machu Pichu) You can't imagine how much a seat helps.
