    Appalachian Hammocks?

    Anyone have one? Looking to get this for a friend as a birthday present. Haven't come across a similar package for that price.

    I don't have one either, but looks like a good option! I believe it is priced competitively as well. I say go for it! I'm interested in checking one out myself, but gotta wait on some moolah...or your review...

    The setup is exactly the way I setup my GT Ultralight when I upgraded the stock suspension. I had replaced my S hooks with Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiners and swapped out the Grand Trunk Rope with 11' x 3" Pauly Island tree straps. After my first camping trip I dropped The Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiners and Pauly Island tree straps and went with 6' x 1" Tree Straps, toggles and whoopie slings it was a much lighter system afterwards.

    The only thing I don't like is the tree straps are tubular nylon leaving open the possibility of stretching.

    That's the same price as a eno double nest but you get straps and better biners. I might have to contact these guys.

    IIRC tubular doesn't stretch that much at all.

    I think it is pretty cool that it actually comes with everything you need to hang it!
