    UL Travel Hammock

    I found an UL Travel Hammock online last night for $12.95. I was wondering if anyone knew of a source for the material that the hammock body is made from and why more manufacturers aren't using it. It is rated for 250 pounds and has a two year warranty so it can't be all that fragile. It is much lighter than the 1.9 oz/sqyd that I am currently using. Any thoughts?

    I believe the Travel Hammocks use polyester as the bed fabric. I know this is the case in the Skeeter-Beeter. I don't know what the weight rating is on it tho.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
