My first night I did not sleep, the second night I slept a bit better, now I sleep better in the hammock than in my bed. I made my hammock so I don't know how a factory made one feels, mine is just right for me so far. I found if i leave the tie outs a little less taught and keep my ridge line a little long so as to make the hammock a little flatter it works well. This is my first hammock and I have only slept in it several times so my adjustments and tastes will probably change. I too think it takes a little getting used to.
