I bought one of these a year ago and took it to el Salvador in aug. It ended up raining and was really hot. This hammock was was great. I was up in the mountains foe 3 weeks and I was really comfortable. Threw a rain fly and I was in heaven. I m 6-3 and I hit the scales at about 260 lbs. I had lots of room and was very comfortable
While the Guy and I haven't tried this on hiking trips yet, it was put up very easily on the front porch for testing. It's more than 2-person big (Mr Dog was happy about that!) and feels very soft on the back. I was impressed how well it folded back into its attached pouch. And it won't take up much space or be very heavy in the day pack on the trail. We think it will be a great addition to our hikes.
