Check the knots!
 from CT,  Apr 14, 2010

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!
