Hello folks, from Duluth, MN.
Last fall we made a day trip to Itasca state park and in their gift shop were incredibly cheap nylon hammocks ($17). They were weight rated to 210, and I'm 250, but I figured for $17, oh well -- I had always wanted to sit in one.
Within 4 days of having this hammock, I went to buy a much more sturdy ENO SN, with a more appropriate weight rating because my head exploded with so much awesome. I couldn't believe what I've been missing out on for so long. It's incredibly comfortable and I look forward to the weather warming up to start enjoying it again. I'll be adding a tarp, bug net, underquilt, etc., but it's too expensive to get all at once. Hopefully I'll have a full camping setup by June.
Day two with the cheapo, a whopping 5" off the ground lol:
