Thread: First hammock

    First hammock

    Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum but I just wanted to say that so far, I love my Trek Light Double. I got it to see if I could be comfortable in a hammock over night. So far, it's been incredible. The hammock is perfect for my relatively tall body (6' 2"). Even with my girlfriend and I both in it, there was no creaking or groaning. I feel totally comfortable with this hammock. The only bad thing is I think because of this hammock, I'm going to be buying a lot more hammock equipment...

    Welcome and glad you liked it. It is definitely an addiction and yes, you will be buying more gear!

    Yup that was my first hammock as well. I have two now and have not found a reason to buy a more expensive brand. You will soon find that the only bad thing about sleeping in that hammock is that it is the most affordable part of a whole hammock setup. Welcome to the hobby. Get out out your checkbook.
    I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.

    Even if upgrading to something later, they are great to have in the car for lounging or a spare.

    I was out in Boulder about 3 weeks ago. Wandering around the street mall, I came across your cart! Bought your backpack (3 oz). What a perfect day hiker pack for peak bagging and just general use. Also have your gear loft which I love! Great products!
