    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.

    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.
