Some will agree with you, likely, and some won't. The consensus opinion (sum of all reviews) should be a good guideline for the overall quality of the hammock.

    edited to add - This is a perfect opportunity for you to use the 4sale section, Neo. I'm sure someone will take it off your hands, happily.
    it to short if it was longer it would be a great hammckneo

    I had to do some checking because I thought the Claytor and the DD Hammock were the same length, with the DD Hammock being a bit wider, so here's the facts:

    Claytor Jungle:
    Length: 300cm (9.84 ft)
    Width: 125cm (4.01 ft)



    DD Hammock:

    Length: 2.7m (8.84 ft)
    Width: 1.4m (4.59 ft)


    So yes the Claytor is 1 foot longer than the DD but DD is still an almost 9 foot long hammock. That's bigger than I am used to but shorter than you normally use neo. The DD is about 6" wider than the Claytor. That says you can probably hang the hammock with a little more sag than you do with a Claytor and go more diagonal in the hammock.

    I plan on doing a day hike Thursday so hopefully I will get a chance to play with the hammock.

    Sorry to hear the hammock is so short - maybe your younger boy can use it?
