    Here's a pic from the company's Picasa web album (http://picasaweb.google.com/campinge...HammockHybrid#). Can you say bad idea? The hanging location, that is.

    Hmm, the rock's beneath, or the trees of death it is strung between?



    BTW: Here it is for $129 on eBay. I actually kinda like the versatility this thing offers.

    edit: Grr, I ALWAYS forget the links! Here it is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=263602_263622

    If the rope it come with can only handle 200lbs I do not know if I would trust this hammock to hang from

    It's a Rockhopper, not a Stumpgrinder.

    Someone needs to give it a try!
