    I have one and it is ok. It fits in the ENO bug guard other than that it is a basic inexpensive hammock. There is nothing at all wrong with it. The kids play on mine more than anything and it is holding up well.

    and i mean the only real reason I want it is to be able to stop after a hike and just relax and put a hammock up and for 20 dollars thats a hell of a deal

    I sold my Hennesy Expedition after getting my UL. I just spent the last 2 nights in it and slept like a baby. I never used the stock suspension so I can't judge it's comfort stock. It's worth the price for sure.

    I bought the UL for the same reason. I have a Hennessy on backorder, but wanted a light chair for day hikes. I just got the UL last week and for the money, I'm impressed.

    I just got tired of the bottom entry of the HH and trying to adjust my underquilt was a pain. That's a non-issue with the UL. You will enjoy it. For the price and weight, it's hard to find anything better.

    I was thinking the very same thing yesterday that I wanted a GT Ultra its much lighter then the WB Traveler dbl 1.7. I just saw one the other day for $20 it looked liked a great hammock.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Once you use it for day use my suggestions would be to add an adjustable ridgeline and whoopie slings. Mine weighed in at 14.5 ozs with the jrb complete system and an AHE ridgeline
