Thanks for the post and comments everyone. The videos were a lot of fun and learned a lot about hammocks over the 5 1/2 months!
The Grand Trunk Nano 7 did the job for 4 months straight and to be honest I was very ruff on it and think the failure was because of the zipper on my WM bag. (first rule of hammocking! - no zippers!) It showed no signs of wear till it was too late. Glad that did not happen hanging over rocks, on the side of cliff, or over water!
My mother forwarded my other hammock for the rest of the trip. A Grand Trunk ultralite. Me and my girlfriend fit fine all snuggled up for the week but I did beef up the suspension.
Think either would work fine for ultralight hikers on the AT but most others would like something alittle more heavy. And have a bug net sent along in the summer months.
Thanks again, Jeff aka Loner
