I bought this hammock for my daughter to use on her yearly camping trips. It is very light weight and doesn't take up too much room. It has only been used on one trip so far, however my daughter was very happy with it.

I got this hammock to use in my backyard (since we don't have room for a standing one) and for camping and am so glad I did. It's a great size and super light weight. There's plenty of room for me laying down and putting it up is so easy! What a great deal!
I recently returned from using this hammock on a desert camping trip and it worked great. The fabric is thinner than the more expensive brands but it held me just fine (160 pounds). The parachord that comes with it is just that, parachord, and it does the job. I would suggest to anyone who buys this hammock to retie the knot that the "S" hook is tied to, just for a little peace of mind. Pros- lightweight, easy setup, inexpensive Cons- thinner material so be extra careful not to puncture a hole in it or it could ruin your trip for sure
A coworker turned me onto this type of hammock. Many other sites have hammocks the same price range. However, I saved a few bucks with Overstock due to the cheap shipping. The hammock is easy to set up, the knots are already in and are super strong. I set it up in the backyard, enjoy the outdoors for a few hours and then pack it up. It's unbelievable how relaxing it is and how small and light the hammock is when rolled up. My coworker gave me some advice: if you take it camping, set it up far from the fire. A blowing ember will put a hole in the hammock and ruin it that quick.
We bought this hammock and a much more expensive other branch (ENO) from REI and and I really can't tell a difference in quality or materials. This one is a little narrower and longer than the other branch which actually makes it more comfortable for me (6 feet tall).
At first I was skeptical of the material but was surprised at how sturdy it felt upon laying in it. 5'9" 185lbs no problem. Needed rope for around trees which was no biggie but thought it was an "all inclusive" setup when purchased so that's why it's only getting 4 stars. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for an inexpensive hammock.
I had never slept in a hammock before. As I was planning on camping in St. John, USVI, I was looking for a warm weather camping alternative. I brought the Ultralight Travel Hammock along to try as an alternative to a tent. After reading other posts, I was particularly careful to verify how I set up the hammock. The only problem was that there were no instructions telling me that I needed to check the knots tied by the manufacturer. I slept great the first night. When I stretched out the second night, one of the manufacturer's tied knots failed, dropping me hard onto a sharp rock, and poking a small hole in the hammock. When I retied the knot and attempted to reenter the hammock, the hole enlarged and the hammock completely ripped in half. I would not trust this hammock!
Best buy for the money! I was looking to replace a hammock that had ripped and this fills the bill. Beautiful color...and great usability. I even ordered another one!
