    the best thing about kids is I get to expand my gear selection with no complaints from my wife.

    I borrow a hammock from my kids on occasion, they own around 6 or so.......yep, that's my story

    Recently put together 3 more. One pink, one purple, one eggplant, all tablecloths for the wife and twin girls. Get used to the "problem". Once they get in em, it's tough to get em out!!

    I hoarded mine for years until I could no longer stand sleeping on the ground with my family. So I brought it out and nearly started a riot. Now we have 6 at our house. Problem solved!

    Make that 7 now.

    One a piece

    Yep, had to get a purple one for the wife and pink one for the daughter. Keeps them from snagging mine and makes me not want to use theirs (can you picture a 6'1" 185 lb guy in neon pink?).

    I think the saying goes, "It takes a real man to wear pink".

    lol, I know the feeling. I'm 6'2" and 195 lb, but luckily I have all boys even though the oldest one is begging for a red hammock, lol.

    Nice!

    Kids are definitely attracted to hammocks like moth to a flame.
