I didn't like this hammock. I guess I should have known that it would be lite and flimsy being a "parachute" hammock. When you lie in it you totally get swallowed up. It would be ok if you are a hiker and don't want to carry bulk or weight but want your hammock with you.
It is exactly as labeled "parachute". That is the crawl-style bundle you become once inside its hanging free-style. Perhaps, its just us not liking to feel body-bagged, though all the campers seem to make this the rage. We might be too old at 35 for that crumpled position.
