I've used many hammock brands over the years as a scout leader and Grand trunk is my favorite. The skeeter beater was my first from this company and my son still uses it years later. We are both 6 ft plus and are 260 and 220 lbs, never had a worry about integrity with this brand.
Very sturdy hammock, strong zippers and all the included hanging gear worked great. Comfortable enough to sleep in for weeks at a time and wide enough to sleep diagonally. Will be using it again for several weeks in the jungle but had to buy a 360 degree bug net because the mosquitos bite right through the fabric that is under you. I had to put a blanket under me to keep from being bitten in a place that was so hot at night that was the last thing I wanted to do. Not so much of an issue if you are camping somewhere cool, though it is a little tricky positioning the blanket and getting on top of it without it being all bunched up everywhere.
Would have bought five but they started bombing me with Adverts reminicent of the 90's, had to give them Five Stars beföre they would allöw this Post. Horrible way to do business.
The Skeeter Beeter Pro Hammock is everything it claims to be. The stitching & quality is very high. However, be sure to mount using two very close items/trees to tie down to. Why 10' straps and 14 foot straps are sold with it is a mystery. Regardless how well you pull the slack taut the hammock needs to be hooked within three/four feet or less to each anchor point. If not the hammock will sag to the point where it bottoms out. This was confirmed by Grand Trunk.
It would be nice if that mounting procedure was documented on-line and instructions were included with the product. Once that is understood, it works just fine. It would be nice if this product was offered in the double size too.
I bought this hammock at my local department store and I can't find a single bad thing to say about it. Easy setup, great mosquito protection, and the width is perfect for finding that perfect flat laying position, and you can even fit all of your gear inside the hammock with you comfortably. I've been hammockamping in it several times and all of the lines maintain their strength and haven't shown any signs of wear. I recommend the Grand Trunk straps as well. They make setup even easier and the quality is second to none.
