The Lawson was my first hammock, enjoy it . I used it for a few months at first it was ok on the 1st night but after 2 or 3 nights it got a little uncomfortable it was hard for me to lay on a diagonal,not that it was impossible it was just the side of the hammock was in my face the whole time putting pressure on my head. Im guessing the rods that run through the top doesn't allow for the hammock to flex very well when on the diagonal. Anyway that was just my experience . I hope you have better luck than i did. That being said i was not discouraged , I bought an ENO and haven't looked back.
I see you posted this in September how is it , have you experienced the same problems?
