I have tried several other types of hammocks from other companies. In my opinion, this is the best value of all of them.
I originally bought the Grand Trunk with mosquito netting. It worked well. I left a review last year about that hammock. I had been asked to be a boy scout leader. I dreaded spending nights on the ground so I thought I would give it a try. It totally changed my attitude about camping. When I camp in a hammock I wake up refreshed, my back doesn't hurt, and I never have to set up my own tent. I wanted a more simple set up without the netting so last year I bought this one. It is now one of 4 Grand Trunk hammocks I own.
I am 6'1" and 220 lbs. This hammock supports my weight without a problem. I love how roomy it is. The silky nylon fabric is very comfortable and durable. The straps it comes with are strong and will hold me easily. I actually use nylon straps with them to protect trees. The width of the hammock allows it to be used as a chair more easily than smaller hammocks.
One tip. I have found that I like this hammock better without the mosquito netting even in buggy areas. I sprayed it with a permethrin treatment I also got on Amazon. It seems to keep the bugs at bay very well. There is enough material that on really buggy nights I can wrap the walls of the hammock over me to keep the critters out. Personally, I find this a more enjoyable way to sleep. My 14 year old son prefers the hammock with the bug netting so he uses that one. We both wake up unbitten. Between those two hammocks I have probably logged 50 nights sleep. They have been very durable. I won't say they look like new, but they haven't required any repair, and I haven't exactly treated them kindly.
Great value, great hammock.
