    Grand Trunk has a contact through these forums. Chief Hammock Officer is an owner of GT and has always been very prompt in returning any emails I have sent him.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    And there are several examples in these forums of GT's most excellent attention to customer service! I'm impressed and I don't even have one ... yet?

    I have GT double. plenty of wiggle room. I swapped out the suspension with whoopie slings. Works great. I am 6 foot at 220 Lbs. Very easy to get a flat diagonal lay.

    I own 3 different Grand Trunk Hammocks and use them all the time. My son uses a SB and I have an ultra-lite and ATHH that I use as my winter hammock.

    I just won a grab bag from them yesterday from a Twitter contest they had.


    They have also given away stuff here to forum members.

    Great Customer service.

    I have a Grand Trunk hammock and i love it, it is my favorite, super small and super light. I carry it in my day pack all the time. I also have a couple other hammocks (Hammock Bliss Noseeum with bugnet, a Parrot Bay with bugnet, and several DIY ones), but the Grand Trunk seems to be my goto one. Here is a pic of it and my dog at a park here in SC:

    I've got two ATTH, a skeeter beeter and a skeeter beeter pro. They're all good. You'll want to swap out the suspension, but the same holds true for the ENO. I've had better luck finding Grand Trunks on sale as well, some for under 20 bucks.

    I have both the ENO Double Hammock and the ATHH for GT. I like both hammocks and companies. I'll echo what others have said in that both standard hammocks are very similar. I would base your decision on price and size of the hammock. Some GT hammocks have a built in bug net while the ENO bug net system is completely separate. Replace the hanging system of each to whatever your are most comfortable. Finally, I personally find the ENO double hammock more comfortable but the ATHH more useful and bigger. Hope that helps.

    Thanks guys, I actually went with a ENO double. I pick one up at REI when they were on sale, think I paid $40 something for it.

    Funny thing about my GT UL is that I bought it for under $20 just to have as an extra for my kids. I wound up changing over the suspension and adding a ridgeline but I go to it more than my claytor JH. Its just soooo small and light! The hammock that is!
