I just bought my first ever hammock because it was a steal on Sierra Trading Post and my friend was urging me to do it after a recent camping trip. I got it for $40 (straps included), which seemed like a steal compared to other retailers.
However, after doing a little bit of research on other hammocks, it seems like it's rather small. Its dimensions are 7'6 x 4'10. I'm 6'1 and can fit into it, but I can't lie in it diagonally, which everyone seems to recommend for a good night's sleep.
If I'm planning on taking it backpacking and using it as my primary sleeping arrangement, should I return it and get a bigger one? It's definitely comfortable to lie in for a little bit of time, but if I try sleeping in it, would it leave me sore? I don't want to take it on a trip or anything because then I won't be able to return it.
Thanks for any help!
