    LOL...I saw that, too. My experience in Scotland's highlands is that convenient rock outcrops of the desired height and configuration can be rare too. More typical (especially up high) is wind...BIG wind...and rain for variety. The wind makes hammock-size tarps and many tarptent style lightweight tents pretty chancy if not impossible/impractical. "Walking" in the highlands is the schnizzle!

    My avatar photo was taken with a 40 mph snow/sleet squall pelting me from the rear...at the stone cairn atop a hill just southwest of Aviemore in the Highlands.

    I emailed them and they said the pair weighs in at 12lbs.
    if you staked them it MIGHT be workable?

    From my experience with speaker stands of many different types, I wouldn't trust them at all to hold up to lateral stress. They are designed to support vertical weight, but have no strength to stand up to the load imparted by a hammock. I'm pretty confident that they would fold in half as soon as you crawled in.

    At 55 lb. capacity each, you gotta be reallly skinny to trust that.
