    I got mine too. The ropes (hanging kit) were not included so I used the ropes that came with my original UL to give it a quick hang and look over the construction. Quality seems to be fine. My review may be unfair because Im definately going to add straps and tri-glides with a structural ridgeline. First impression is that the zipper is a bit stiff so I'll go over it with some house-wax to loosen it up and add to its life. Im also not sure how the netting should be hung (in stock mode)but I'll go to the website and see if there is any info.

    So I just got my travel hammock AT Hybrid Hammock in the mail and opened it up! I can't wait to use it some. I'll have to take some pictures soon.

    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    yeah, it seems that we all got different hammocks... that oughtta make the reviews a little hard to lump together right!?
    He asked what model I wanted so I went with the Skeeter Beeter. I was wondering where the heck the grosgrain tie-outs were, SB doesnt have 'em.

    So, what do you think? An error on the specified length on one or the other, or not actually the exact same hammocks?

    For the other Costco single no net hammock. the specs appear identical.
    My HAMMOCK is 9', add on the rope loops at each end, & it goes to about 9' 8" or so. Possibly, & this is just a guess, the seams (which also are what the rope loops thread thru) are 3" each, sooooo, perhaps the manufacturer states the length of the fabric, & Costco the actual length of the hammock.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.

    I've got two pics up in my gallery of the ATHH next to a 1 liter camelbak bottle.

    Hi Everyone!

    Yes, some of you received different hammocks. Since I was feeling generous and digging the feedback and talking with all of you, a couple people made requests to try different products and I thought why not?? Anyway, thanks again for all of your comments and feedback, this has been really fun for me!

    I've had a couple last minute requests and will take care of them, but I am now officially done with the test hammocks. I do have more V1 All Terrain Hybrid Hammocks available if anybody would like to purchase one. I think $30.00 including shipping is a fair deal. Let me know.

    I also have to apologize for not setting up the Pay Pal portion of this prior to posting the test. For those of you that I have spoken with and are involved in the test, if you prefer to pay via Pay Pal please do so. The Pay Pal account to use is...

    Thanks again!
