I have had the opportunity to take this hammock out a few times now. It is really easy to set up, making it nice for back packing, car camping, and even a lazy afternoon in the back yard. I use a little bit of paracord to hang it up. I have slept in it on warmer and colder nights. I have used it with a pad which makes it usable during colder nights. I really like the sewn on pouch for storage as well as a place to put stuff while you are in the hammock. I would recommend this.
