    This reminded me of something you would see in SkyMall.

    But Wait there's more!!! For just $369.00 you can get the Treez Minimalist. Um, isn't that just a Bridge Hammock and a Tarp?

    The hammock rig is 3 lbs 14 oz and their tarp is another pound... ULTRALIGHT!!!

    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.
    I think dblhammock has done some successful designs...

    The man has obviously put in a great deal of time, thought, and hard work to come up with something he believes in. I guess it takes a like mind to appreciate another persons ingenuity.

    It takes a lot less to blurt out the first thing that comes to mind or doesn't.

    Well, that's true, it doesn't take much time to realize that no matter how much real ingenuity was put into it, its done at a ridiculous pricepoint.

    ... Which is what he did when he implied that two point hammocks are 'saggy and sacklike.' The whole website is just ridiculous and misleading. He basically refuses to acknowledge the existence of true ultralight hammocking. If he pitched the idea based on its true strengths, which have been mentioned in this thread, then I'd be on-board... But he doesn't, he plays to ignorance. Sorry I don't appreciate that tactic.
