    I don't. But I looked at the specs. 97" x 48" unfolded. That's on the
    small side, particularly if you like to hang on a diagonal. By point of
    reference, the Speer hammocks are a foot longer and a foot wider. The smallest Henessey hammock, the Adventure Racer, is a foot longer too.

    Whether this matters or not depends on your size and style of hanging.

    I agree with Grizz, this may be too small to be very comfy (If the specs are correct). Might be good as a lounger while car camping....

    While it is identified as a "Travel Hammock" in the text it is no longer featured on the webiste. It may be an obsolete model. The specs may indeed be correct for that model but Travel Hammock has changed it's specs
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I have two of the travel hammocks that for years I have thrown into the hatch of my kayak whenever I go out. They are a great product! Pull them out first and allow them to dry off, (darn hatches leak and drying only takes minutes) and by the time lunch is over, their ready for a nap. Call me a lazy "yaker" But at 62 I can afford that luxury.

    I zoomed in and it has the same drawcord channel of the travel hammock. But, why would the specs be wrong on the rei site?

    Me too Greg. I'm a lazy yakker. When the smallie action is slow during the mid afternoon, I get off the water, sling up a hammock and chill for a bit.
