Ultralight Starter Hammock
The perfect "starter" hammock that's as light in your pack (12 oz.) as it is on your wallet.
Rated to 200 pounds, this hammock is best suited to younger hangers*, or the shorter/lighter crowd. Buy one for your scout, and watch them become the envy of their troop (if not an altogether trendsetter). Winner of the ultimate merit badge: Outdoor Gear Lab's 2014 "Best Buy Award." Children should always have adult supervision while in a hammock. Young kids (and sometimes older ones) can't always gauge distances properly and aren't capable of foreseeing dangerous situations by themselves. Weight capacity reflects a static or dead load.

Just spent the afternoon napping in my new light weight blue grandtrunk.
What a grand way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon- refreshed and relaxed
I purchased one of these as a lounging hammock (not for sleeping overnight) for canoe outings. It's now been on at least 6 week-long Scout adventures in the Boundary Waters, down the Current River, the Manistee River and the Little Miami and on numerous overnights. It's been used and abused and it has held up admirably. It's a little too short for me to overnight in (I'm 5'11") but I have certainly had many an afternoon nap in it. Great back-up chair, too. Oh, and I am definitely over 200 lbs . . . .
i bought this hammock on a whim. i didn't know it was for women and kids til i read this site. anyway i have used it and i'm pleased to say that my 250lb. butt slept in it with no problems at all. i went and bought two more, one for my oldest son and one for a buddy of mine and they are also pleased with this hammock. i looked at other hammocks online after i purchased these and found out that this one is four ounces lighter than the competition! Surprise again. thanks for a quality product at a affordable price.
I got this hammock as a gift about 6 years ago. I didn't know it was for women and kids (I'm 6'1" male, 185lbs) but I went ahead and used it on most of the AT and throughout the White Mountains of NH and I really never had a problem with it. If I ever thought 'this hammock is too short for me' then I promptly rolled over, fell asleep, and forgot about it. It held up well and was only after receiving a few holes here and there that I thought I should replace it and discovered that I had pushed this little hammock to the limits of its design, but it held up like a champ!
i have this and a skeeter beater. Love em both! But this one is better for hot days!
I am 6' 2" and about 190 lb. Feel comfortable it in and great for those hot summer days.
