    I'm 6'4" at 220lbs and am comfy relaxing and napping in a GT ultralight. At only $20 it's hard to beat the price. Haven't done much else with it though.

    I also think the Northwoods Wolf Hammock looks like a winner. If I were making a strong, cheap, comfortable hammock I'd choose the same materials.

    The tablecloth hammock is also very comfortable. I made one with a mini spreader bar, and it's great. I will probably use the same design with some 1.9 ripstop someday.

    Relaxing and napping is cool in those, overnight not so much... For me anyway. I'm only 6'1" so I can't imagine you'd have any better luck though. There's just not enough there for a good diagonal lay.

    I think if you are speaking of the Wolf hammock, once you choose your netting option, the price changes to about $121.

    Yep.

    The pricing IS a little confusing. I thought it was same price with or without...

    New website and a little more fine tuning might be helpful.

    I have a pretty hard calf ridge in mine and I'm 5'10" its a good light hammock... Maybe a bug out bag hammock... But I love my tablecloth hammock leaps and bounds over my grand trunk...

    I moved up to the GT Double and then got a Single and both are infinitely more comfortable than the UL. The UL will stay in my car, with its stock suspension, as a spur of the moment nap kit. I don't mind a quick nap in it, but overnight was never comfortable. I slept in it five or six nights before admitting that to myself.

    Oldragfreeze, could you please share more about the Grand Trunk UL? I'm not questioning your experience at all, I'd just like to know what exactly it was that made it uncomfortable for you?

    Everyone is different, but I liked my GT UL and slept in it several times. I have since given it to my grandson. I did not like how the TQ was hard to keep inside of it. It is a narrow hammock and some folks find it hard to get a diagonal lay because of that.
    I would suggest you try the tablecloth hammock as mentioned above, you can't go wrong with it. Also, you have many colors to choose from.
