    TTTM King Size hammock, bit shorter as advertised but still comfy

    I ordered a TTTM King Size hammock and because it was
    the offer of the day (30US$) a TTTM single one as well

    (20 US$ for worldwide shipment whatever the number of items ordered)

    TTTM King Size (60US$)
    http://www.hammockparachute.com/en/t...?size=kingsize
    On the site it says Size : 320 cm x 230 cm/10.5 x 7.2 ft

    Actual Size : 300 cm x 233 cm/9.84 x 7.64 ft/ 118.11 x 91.73 inch

    So it is actually a bit shorter, the same goes for the single
    the length is 300 cm /9.84 ft/ 118.11 inch and not the 320 cm/10.5 ft
    as on the site. Perhaps others can confirm the hammocks are actually
    a bit shorter? Although I don't think it has any impact on the
    comfort.

    The Parachute Nylon is very comfortable as well and the hammocks
    look well made, I did replace the S-hooks with the TTTM carabiners
    to start with.

    Despite my height (6'10") it is quite comfortable if I hang the
    King size hammock pretty tight (with little sag)

    A similar hammock would be the Hammock Bliss Triple
    http://www.hammockbliss.com/Hammock_Bliss_Triple.html
    8'2'' x 9'10'' / 250 cm x 300 cm, (75 US$)
    Note: I haven't got one, added info just for others reading
    this thread.

    And of course there are the double hammocks supplied by
    different manufacturers.

    A more extensive review of a TTTM
    Ticket To The Moon Hammocks (Double Hammock)
    http://hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2450

    In the single there was too much shoulder squeeze, but I can
    still use it for day trips as it is a bit lighter. After changing
    the whipping as outlined by Rapt "Asymmetrical Whipping revisited"
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...9&postcount=16
    much of the squeeze was reduced and you more or less create a footbox
    making it more comfortable.

    I see you can order it in camo! Always a plus in my book.
