My review.

I mounted this hammock using the “Moon Straps” supplied for review. I have done a separate short report for that item. The hammock is packed in a banana shaped stuff bag and has stainless hooks fitted which clip into the loops in the moon straps. You hook one end onto the strap and then pull the hammock from the bag across to the opposite strap and hook into a suitable loop. This makes it fairly easy to adjust the tension on the hammock. Packing away in reverse the hammock stuffs neatly into the “banana” bag which then closes with a zip.

The hammock feels comfortable and appears to be very well made. The material is supposed to be “hypo-allergenic”
and washable. I did not use it for an overnight trial but I did spend about an hour trying it out with both a sleeping bag and hammock quilt. It is single skin so you would have to put an insulating mat under your bag inside the hammock and an under blanket on really cold nights. I also fitted the mosquito net which I have reported on separately.

Overall I was very impressed with the ease of set up, the quality of manufacture and materials. For summer light camping it is an excellent piece of kit.
