    Gibbon Slacklines

    has anyone ever used the double sold by Gibbon Slacklines? i realize that hammocks are not typically their main product line so just wondering if anyone had tried it and the quality if so

    That actually looks like a very decent hammock. Nice and long too @ 136"! I wonder if cannibal already has this hammock...

    my Gibbon Slackline double hammock finally came in and first reaction is...its massive




    but i guess that is to be exprected for a hammock 11'4" long. also interestingly enough the hammock comes with their slackline webbing, fairly short peices but its better than having to buy more. to connect to the webbing they use cam-lock buckles which are pretty easy to use until you get to their logo on the webbing which then it hangs up some



    overall im pretty happy with it, even more so since i got it on sale for $40

    Thanks for the pictures & review! Out of curiosity, is the orange/yellow color more orange or more yellow looking? I thought it would be more yellow, but it appears more orange in your pictures.
