    Anyone looking for a good, cheap hammock?

    I was poking around and came across this sale:
    Island Bay Portable Hammock - $30

    Seems like a good price for what looks pretty similar to the ENO singlenest, though this one is a little shorter than the ENO.

    Hammock bed measures 7 ft. 2 in. L x 5 ft. W
    Hammock measures 11-feet long overall
    I think it's longer than a ENO, my DN measures just over 9' when ungathered and laid out flat.

    It's got pretty nice BSA style colors too, looks like a great gift for that scout in your family.

    The hammock bed on the ENO is 9+ feet. The hammock bed on the Parrot Bay is 7+ feet. A very significant difference. These have come up before and the length has always been a concern for adult use. It is probably fine for kids.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    That's what I noticed as well. I wasn't sure how well it would work out for people. I'm only 5'8" so it might be ok for someone like me, but I'm also used to a larger double hammock so it might feel weird going to something that much smaller.
