    Tree Boat Hammocks

    Heavy but they have some pretty good ideas.

    A 4 point bridge that doesn't sway for one.

    Expensive but so is a Clark.

    Are they comfy is the ultimate question ??

    Looks nice but one for the car campers I think.

    I bet it's a good nights sleep in there

    The suspension lines are 1" _Nylon_ circular webbing. That is climbing webbing which is great for climbing. Not so great for hammocks. The stuff can stretch like a gummy worm. When the stress is released it does not retain its stretched length but springs bak to where it started. Most folks rely on polypro or polyester webbing. Just a thought.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think that the treeboat hammocks are designed to be used high off the ground. Maybe that is why they chose the tubular nylon webbing. If I was into multi-pitch tree climbing it might be something I would look into, but if not then I don't think it's a great option. I assume that if you do tree climbing like that you would use a haul bag, but I don't know much about it.

    I wasn't so concerned with the material as the style of 4 point suspension it uses and the combination of a bridge yet has the fabric head end raised unlike the totally flat lay of a normal bridge.

    Now if the foot end was built like a BMBH you could have the best of both world's.

    I need to learn how to sew!

    I really like their bug net design. But not for $126

    I've seen these used in california redwoods. good for what they're used for.. I think I can get more bang for my buck with something else. But if I was rock climbing or climbing monstrous trees this'd be great
