This is a very comfortable hammock. Had to add the end loops but that's not a worry I was able to utilize ultralight cordage. I like how it doesn't overlap my body when I lay in it and I can lay almost completely flat when at an angle. (I sleep head left in the hammock) great for someone who wants a good quality very light customizable hammock without sewing a bunch yourself.
I've been wanting a hot pink hammock for a couple of years now since discovering RBTR's hot pink ripstop nylon. Not because I needed it, but because it sounded like a lot of fun; but I could never quite justify it (I've got 8 hammocks already). Then along comes Ripstop's Appalachian Hammock fire sale and I can't help myself. After all, THIS one comes pre-made. And very professionally made to boot!
Well, it's absolutely stunning!! It takes me back to high school (ca. 1985). If I lose this in the woods, it won't be because I can't see it!
Thinking I was ordering a complete hammock - I didn't realize until I received them that they only include the material - not the rope or anything else - so now I have three yellow hammocks that I need to concoct a combination of the right ropes and whatever other accessories to make these useful as hammocks. Next time I need to read more closely.
I have not taken it out in the wild, so this review is strictly based on look and feel. It looks and feels great, I have every expectation that it's going to do fine.
As with every RSBTR order I've ever placed this hammock is a great value. I'm a full time hammock sleeper and even though this is a little narrower than it was advertised the lay is very flat and comfortable.
