    Nice deal... depending the definition of a "nice two man tent."
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I saw the Kalisto in the store - held it in my hands! - which was one reason I was tempted. That, and the fact that I wasn't finding any materials to make one myself. I did, though, after a few more calls, find some poly cloth and polypro webbing (adequate for a test run a la Risk, I thought).

    The size issue is obvious - I AM 6'3" - and therefore there's no way would I bother. I'm liking the ENO Doublenest @ REI - I suppose I would fit comfortably? The stellar reviews @ REI make it hard to ignore... and I'm to assume people here love it as well?


    psssst - What's this secretive 20% coupon you speak of?
    Hmm, just some info for ya...
    ENO singlenest: 101"(8.41')X53"(4.41'), 18oz.
    Kalisto travel hammock: 116"(9'6")X61"(5.08'), 23.5oz. $19

    I use and prefer the ENO singlenest to any other, but i just bought the Kalisto yesterday. I have yet to sleep in it. I did put the ENO guardian bug net over the Kalisto, and it fit perfect. Oh yeah, i'm 6'3"(190lb).

    And to those Wally world anti's, america sold it's soul long ago, don't blame wally world, just save some loot.

    I got a Kalisto - Travel Hammock for father's day. I've not been able to find any place local with the right fabric anyway. I slung it up and hung out in it a little and it was comfortable. I didn't sleep in it yet. But it was easy to get in/out of of and I fit just fine at 6 feet tall.

    Not nearly as nice as some of the cool ones here, but it's a start.

    I just picked one up on fathers day to hang around the back yard. Not too bad for $18. Spent the night in it and slept well. Could be a little wider, got some shoulder squeeze on my back but was fine on my side, oh well. The weight isn't bad if you remove the steel eye bolts on the suspension, i think they probably weigh more than the hammock. I like the attached stuff sack right in center edge..makes for a great spare beer holder.

    Therefore, I suppose Trek Light would win out. Again, though, is there nowhere local these hammocks are sold? No brick and mortar, really? -.-


    ...Wait - an SBPro for $52.95? O.O

    http://www.maarms.com/skeeterbeeter-...kh-p-1049.html

    Anyone ever dealt with "MA Arms"? They do at least offer Google checkout...


    Decisions... over to read some ENO vs SBP opinions, I suppose. :P


    OR... even better... to the "gear for sale" forum!?
