    I only had the apartment window and door frame to sort of string it up. I'll do it justice when I get back home and can set it up between some real trees.

    What I can tell you it reminds me a lot of the old Vietnam Era hammocks ... bug netting and over cover. It's made of a ripstop nylon but the bed is a canvas of some kind. The whole thing is a bit small packed but still has some size. I'm guessing three pounds but I'll check when I get it home.

    It's got a side enterance zipper and as storage area below with a smaller length zipper.

    Kinda neat little rig ... would be fun as a car camping hammock ... but hey ... it is what it is. Very nice gentleman to supply this to me.

    More to come when I get it state side and have better room to photo it with a real camera.
    Neat! Definitely a car camper though.

    Looks tiny. I'm 6'1". that thing is only 2" longer than I am tall. Love the colors though. String it up, hop in, and disappear.
