    New find

    I was in my local outfitter yesterday and saw this.





    Has anyone ever seen this before. I thought it would make a great light weight and cheap ($20) option. I took it out of the package and it seemed to be really thin. I could see light through it when holding it up to the light.

    I've got one in my basement that I occasionally sleep in. It is a little small, but still very useful. Check Amazon, and you should be able to get it in camo.

    Great value for 20 bucks, They are a little small, though. I'm 5'11 and 225 and it's too small for me to sleep in, great for lounging.

    Both of my boys own them. They pprefer thier canvas DIY's inside but with hit the trail with thier Grand Trunk Ultralights. Simple setup, low price, super lightweight. If I came across one and had the spare change, I'd grab it.

    Yea, at 5'7" I'm about 2" short of being too tall for The GT UL, but if you are 5' 8.5" it's a great hammock.

    My brother in law bought one of these. I swapped it out with whoopies and set him up with tree straps. He likes it but it is pretty small. The pocket ripped off the hammock pretty fast.

    They are $12 on amazon and if you spend 25 on products that amazon stocks you get free shipping. I got two of them and 2 carabiners to replace the s hooks. It cost me 34 shipped...that's not too bad for 2 hammocks...
    I have a couple ultralights, a single and just got the grand trunk double today.
    The ultralights are great for the price but ithey do seem a little small. The single and the doubles are comfortable and well worth the extra price..
