IMO any hammock is a good hammock as long you are comfortable in it. Do not let the peoples opinions sway you. I have one very similar to this that was given to me. The stock suspension on it was pretty heavy so I changed it out with 7/64 amsteel whoopie slings and a adjustable ridge line. It is a very serviceable hammock weighing in at 13oz. I would not hesitate to get one of the walmart hammocks. You can not hardly go wrong for the price.
