I received my claytor no net in the mail the other day. (due to the holidays, it took 3 weeks to get here) The first thing I noticed was the small stuff sack size---its really small when stowed in the stuff sack! The hammock is made out of breathable nylon, but its not rip stop. ----Im not sure that makes a difference in a hammock , but it is different from other hammock s I have used. Also, the weight listed in the website is 1 lb, but actual weight with straps and stuff sack is 1 lb 7 oz. I bought the hammock to use with my peapod---since the weather has been cold in GA this year, i tried it out this weekend. At first the suspension system seemed kind of strange, but after trying it out a few times with the knots listed on the claytor website, i kind of liked it! i liked the way you could seperatly adjust height and tension. (you can adjust the height with out changing the settings on the knots) Its simple, and functional. The hammock worked great with the peapod, i noticed there was a lot more room inside, verses using the peapod with a speer. I have been a speer hammock fan for a long time, and have made 2 of them. However, due to my body shape and size, my back would hurt in the morning. I was pleasntly suprised with the comfort of the claytor no net---i was in my hammock almost 12 hours and felt great! Apparently the claytor works better for me than the speer. (every one is different, this just happens to work for me) I especially liked the way you could lay on the center ridge of the claytor. On the flip side, the hammock is narrow, and its tought for me to lay on my side, especially in the peapod. (part of me tends to hang over the edge of the hammock) I had my 13 year old son (who is almost as tall as I am but much skinnier) try the claytor, he prefers the speer, because of the higher sides, (seth is a bit of a wild sleeper!) Im toying with the idea of modding my claytor with a bug net so I can use it in the summer too---yeah, i really liked it! My next experiment will be to try it with a sleeping mat in the double bottom. i suspect the inside will be even more comfortable! Next step, i need to mod the straps a little to prevent wicking.
