    Eight pounds? No thanks. I could carry my tent and my hammock and still be under that.

    Reading their advertisement, I got a good laugh.

    "Our whole concept allows users to move away from worn areas and camp anywhere there are treesóregardless of ground conditions, grade or topography..."

    Hmmm....seems there's a simpler, much smaller/lighter version already out there...

    And then throw in: "...weighs in at a very modest and packable 8 pounds."

    I just looked at their "minimalist". $369 for a 3 point hammock. Actually, I kinda like the idea of a 3 point hammock...I could see my wife feeling a lot more comfortable in that. Of course, you have to find the right configuration of trees...3 trees rather than 2.

    But how much could it really cost to DIY your own 3 pointer? And I'd be amazed if someone hadn't already long since come up with this idea.

    It'sAndy had one of these at the 3rd Annual FL Hang this month, and it looked interesting. For kayaking (which is what he's using it for), it's not a bad deal; a freestanding t**t that can be hung from the trees for additional comfort when possible. Yes, yes, you can use your hammock as a bivvy with a groundsheet and tarp--but, it's not freestanding the way this thing is.

    Not sure I'd pay over a grand for it (heck, I'm not sure it's something I'd buy, period: I don't intend on going where there are no trees, and my concern for weight isn't quite up to biting seven extra pounds of shelter), but it's an interesting idea for folks who want a lot of flexibility and for whom weight isn't much of a concern.

    Personal opinion: interesting idea, fairly well executed, but not something I'd pay more for than a regular full-featured hammock.

    Just imagine what the underquilt would cost... (rimshot)

    Doubt I'd ever buy one, but I'd probably pay $10 just to watch one get set up and try it out.

    Any step off the ground is a step in the right direction for our poor groundsleeping brothers and sisters. They are a confused lot, but the recent attempts to elevate their tents show they ARE learning. Keep spreading the good news, they'll 'get it' yet!
