    That's one of the craziest camping contraptions that I've ever seen. In looking at the their website, the small version ONLY weights 12-15 pounds. The price ($1500+) seems to support the craziness of the thing.

    Yes I'm kidding of course. I just thought my fellow hammock sleepers would get a kick out of it. Look at some of those pictures...crazy! It'd be fun to have one permanently installed at my vacation home though.
