    There is a forum within HammockForums.net for Trek Light. I have the double, and enjoy it and the material... although, since participating, I am exploring making some of my own. Seth (at TrekLight) participates in these forums

    Trek Light does have a presence on this forum. They are long standing members and occasionally run specials which they make available to us as members. While I do not own any of their gear, I have heard very good reports of it. I can not use it because of special needs I have which they do not fill.
    But otherwise I would have no qualms about ordering from them or owning their gear.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Trek Lights are great hammocks. They are among my favorite for lounging around, whether it be at camp or in the backyard. I usually bring one of mine with me when I'm car camping just to have something to flop down in without going to 'bed'. The fabric is softer on the skin that traditional ripstop, but that also makes it heavier. Genuine Draft (my GF) used my Trek Light double for her 400 mile section of the AT. One of these days, I'm hopeful she'll give me back my hammock.

    Doesn't hurt that Trek Light is about 45 minutes from my house. The way I look at it, buying gear from Trek Light or Warbonnet is a guilt-free purchase that contributes to the Colorado economy. That's what I keep telling myself, anyway.

    The first hammock I bought is the TrekLight double. I love it. Very comfy. It is one of my primary indoor hammocks, because it's so comfy.

    I also own a Trek Light double. Well made and very comfy. It was my first intro into sleeping in a hammock in the wilderness. I now own several hammocks, tarps, under quilts, and top quilts. So I'd say that the Trek Light was the perfect first hammock, since it was the one that sucked me into this wonderful madness.

    A TL double was my first hammock. I still use it when hanging indoors. It's versatile, you can play with it and do various temporary modifications. The material is nice. I'd definitely go with a double rather than a single.
