    The Grand Trunk Ultralight, the Walmart Hammock and a couple others fall into the starter hammock catagory. Same basic configuration, 9' x 4.5' parachute fabric, gathered end hammock with climbing rated nylon rope suspension and a couple of biners. Throw in a foam pad and a cheap tarp and you're on your way.

    Not to get too off topic but I've been to a couple different Kmart's this year and their camping selection has really improved!! Check em out guys.

    FYI, the Byer hammock comes without any hardware (carabiner, S hook, etc.) to connect it to your straps. I wasn't aware of this when I bought one for my son, so I had to cannibalize the ones on my ENO. ('Course now I get to replace those heavy steel ones with nice, lighter ones, so not a total loss... :7)
