    One item not shown on your site is the weight limit. I think some of us need to know that unless we weigh only about 150 pounds (68k.).

    just saw this on there ... That is an amazing concept to have it already sewn on alleviating the gap issue! Now if I could just afford the price. I need EU market to crash so the US dollar is way more and I can pick a few up

    I did found out that those insulated Tarseer hammocks can handle 120 kg (265 lb). I do think Core is same hammock without insulation. Hope I'm right!

    Check out the specifications, weight bearing fabric is same on all of theirs hammocks.

    It's a very interesting design. I'd love to see a video review of this hammock. I have wide shoulders and shoulder squeeze looks like it may be an issue for me. I'll be keeping my eyes open for reviews.

    That's a bit of an oversight on our part. The weight limit will be added to the site promptly. We give it the same 120 kg rating as the Tarseer but in truth it can probably take quite a bit more than that.

    As for shoulder squeeze, the MadTree three point setup is designed specifically to eliminate it so it should not be a problem even for those with wider shoulders.

    Any thoughts of doing a longer hammock in this version in the future? How does it lay being only 7 ft long?

    We haven't considered starting to produce a longer version as the Core, being suitable for sleepers up to 2m tall, will already fit most people. Of course we do custom works so drop us an email at hello@madtree.fi if you really need a longer hammock.

    The reason why our hammocks can be shorter than most is the way the three point suspension system works. Unlike in a gathered end hammock our suspension system does not waste fabric in the ends of the hammock but uses the entire length of the fabric as effective sleeping surface. That's also why our hammocks can be lighter without using thinner fabrics.

    Check out this picture to get a better idea how the suspension works:
