Though it is a bit heavy, I thought this was kinda neat and was wondering if anyone in this forum has one. It might be good for car camping.
That is both really cool and really weird all at the same time. It took a couple looks to see the hammock part of it. At 3 lbs 9oz it is still about a pound lighter than my TNF tent I sent back to REI and used the money for my hh.
The only issue that I would see is hanging really close to the ground. That and you would loose the site selection advantages of hammocks. But yeah for car camping and if you have the money I would like to see some pics in action.
1) It's different
2) At least it's till not sleeping on the ground.
I think that's a really cool concept. I really like the tarp design. Anybody think it's a little shady that there is no pic, only a drawing?
I could make it lighter. :D
Expensive Mountain Sports has a return policy similar to REI. Is there is someone here willing to buy one to try it out??? Or go to a store to get a look and some pictures??
I think most commercial tents can be made lighter. They do not use sil out of duribility issues with the mases. That alone would gain you a lot. Add in regular noseeum for the netting and your trekking poles for tent poles. With all of that you could make this for close to 2 lbs.
