    I got mine today, and it looks pretty good, as Lawson's cord usually does. It's a lot less bulky than the 3mm.

    A lot of people prefer to be able to quickly disconnect their suspension from the hammock, especially if the lines get wet.

    I don't need more cord, but I ordered some anyway. I like Lawson's cord, and I often feel like the 3mm is too big but the 2mm seems to abrade quickly. Maybe 2.5mm will be the sweet spot
