The Deep Jungle is my first and only hammock so far, so I can't compare it to anything else, but it is put together well and the zipper is solid.
I have only used it about a dozen nights now, but it did survive my 4 and 7 year old nephew and niece unsupervised for 20 minutes while my sister napped. They have been infatuated with it ever since they saw it and they were having a little rumble inside it when I came back to the site.
I just wish my e-reader had also survived.
Learning how to tie a couple knots never killed nobody. First ones I ever learned were pretty hard but they've kept my shoes on me for the better part of 45 years.
