    I didn't really like the DD Travel hammock that I tried out. I have the Frontline and I am planning to review it in the spring (along with the Bridge Hammock Battle series). I am anxious to see how the Frontline compares to the Travel Hammock.

    My brother also tried this hammock and doesn't care for it.

    I could not get a comfortable diagonal lay in the Travel hammock but I believe it is designed to be a mid-line lay. Also when I inserted a mat it would always slip to the side making an uncomfortable sleep.

    After sleeping in the DD Hammock I always woke up sore in my legs and my neck. I wouldn't recommend the DD Travel Hammock but I am still unsure of the Travel Hammock. They are similar though.

    I have yet to see a complaint of calf pressure with this brand of hammock. Every body OK in that area?

    Are y'all doing the usual diagonal lay, or laying mid-line?

    How is it for side sleeping?

    Neo, how tall are you? I'm 6'2", 250lb. I wonder if I could get a comfortable diagonal lay?

    This would be my first real camping hammock, and I'd get their tarp because the price is right and it's huge.

    Another hammock to try at the spring hang. Thinking I might just jump in while you be gone to town. Someone needs to watch the stuff!
