    From Wally's website:

    "Equip Travel Hammock:
    Brings portable comfort alive
    Fabric is water-resistant to ensure that on any relaxing afternoon this hammock will keep you safe and dry
    Folds into an 8"L x 3"W x 5"H bag
    Great for a number of occasions
    Compact size makes it practical to bring to any event
    Included hanging kit lets you set this hammock up in minutes
    Nylon rope included
    Triple-stitched weight bearing points
    Steel links with locks included
    Open size: 9'8" x 4'9"
    Weight: 1.5 lbs
    400-lb weight capacity"

    Although 8Ball's pic says "300 lb cap"... may not be right...

    But then again it's "Great for a number of occasions." So it has that going for it... Which is nice....

    conecrned about being water-resistant. May not be good for camping due to vapor not being able to get away from your body and condensing. Then again it may work fine. Interested to see what the results are in anyone buys one.

    Well it's just water resistant not water proof. So there should be some evaporation.

    I picked up a different one from Kmart. It was taffeta nylon. $20 on sale.

    From Castaway? Owl and I bought a set at out Kmart to play around with and i sometimes use it as a lounger when i am out on day hikes or hanging out at a friend's place that has a set up to hang hammocks. I put whoopies on it and everything but a structural ridgeline.
