    Bare bones, crazy affordable little hammock. Genie

    I just bought a hammock from Genie Outdoor Recreation, based out of Traverse City Mich. It's a pretty sweet little Hammock, & the price, $20! ($45 with suspension & stuff sack).

    My only other hammock experience is my Hennessy, & this is the complete other side of the spectrum. Straight up single layer gathered end, the stock suspension is straps & carabiners. Spent a couple hours in it this afternoon & really enjoyed it. Thinking about upgrading to a Dutch/Whoopie hookup, which might shave a few oz's off (roughly 20 oz in stuff sack with straps & 'biners).

    Anywho, I dig it, the price is sweet, & it's local, thought I'd give him (just a dude & a couple sewing machines) a bit of a free shout on the forums.

    gunner, he didn't put actual measurements, but he did say the size was generous. I'm now trying to put generous in a quantitative perspective. LOL.

    generous means different things to someone who is 5ft 2 vrs someone who is 6ft 2.

    Most 3/4 length UQs are full length for my wife who is vertically challenged while they are 3/4 length for me.
