    Exped Ergo Hammock?

    Has anyone ordered one yet? I admit to being somewhat fascinated. I really don't need one, but it looks pretty sweet.

    I certainly haven't ordered one, but I too am curious to hear what the folks here on the forum have to say about them after getting some time in one.

    I've read one report saying that it is too short.
    Guy says he is 5'8'' and that he'll return it.

    can you provide the link to that report ? I understood that these hammocks will only be available from end of march, so this might be a beta version of the final hammock.

    Checking the website from Exped, they haven't indicated any PoS yet.

    The hammock is indicated with 205 cm by 140 cm, supposed to be good until 180 cm (which is why I excluded it from my list)

    This could still be the pre-production model like the one FourDog used in his videos. A few more conformations would be nice.

    Here is the source from another forum:

    Less than 58 ounces...including suspension and stuff bag. But yes, too expensive for me.

    Looks expensive, bulky and "tangly" with all those cords sticking out. But I, too, am fascinated. Cool idea.

    Light weight. Low prices. Great gear.

    I am expecting mine in about a week. I spent a good deal of time on the phone with a guy named Brennan at Exped. One of my main concerns is the length. I am 6'1" and 250 lbs. Brennan said he is 6'2" tall and about 215 lbs., and he said that his toes touched the end of the hammock. He said it was tight, but that he could have used more room. He also said that he didn't find it a concern because when lying on his back for a short while relaxing , or first getting into bed, it wasn't a bother. He, like myself, is mostly a side sleeper. So, when actuall turning in for sleep he found he had enough room. He told me that a larger version will not be available this season, but that it was a definite possibility for next year. Haven't dealt with Exped much, but I was very impressed with the amount of time this guy took to talk with me. Didn't rush me and actually provided other insight on things I wasn't even asking about. I know there are a couple of early YouTube videos from FourDog, and some others, but I believe they are for a pre final production run model. If someone else doesn't beat me to it, I will try my hand at a video when I receive the hammock.
