Double hammocks that only hold 300lbs? Seems a bit off.

Okay, this is my kind of hammock. No bugs!

I’m so glad they brought this back! I ordered the grey bugnet hammock with black rain-fly - figured it will be convenient since it has the bugnet already and will look good for contrasting colors. I previously ordered a slingbag by Yukon from woot as well and I’m currently writing a review on it, but I don’t know where to post that review yet. I’m impressed with the slingbag and wouldn’t doubt the quality of the hammock as well :slight_smile: Maybe you fellas/gals (Yukon) will recommend a site to post a review?

Finally! :slight_smile:

I bought two of the olive hammocks w/bug net around Christmas(for backpacking). They are great. I recommend changing the lines with good old fashioned 550 parachord And maybe a home made snakeskin. Stop procrastinating and click the I want one button then enjoy :slight_smile:

Suggest if you bought a product here on Woot, that long ago, that you post any review you might write on Amazon, Woot’s parent company.

Woot only shows items for so long, then archives them. While you might actually still find the page, the chances are poor that anyone looking for a review of the product will go looking for that old page here, and a much higher chance they’ll look on Amazon.

Am I correct in assuming this does not come with tree straps?

We keep seeing hammocks on woot…would be nice to see some tree straps to hang them with!

So why do us fat guys not need protection from mosquitos? I guess I could order one of the 275lb ones and not eat dinner…

Uhhh, you do know that the hammock has a mosquito net only right? There is no black “rain fly” or tarp included or even available. You should order a Grey or Olive tarp if you feel you want to have a “rain fly” otherwise it might get a little wet out there.

It does not. It comes with an attachment rope that is mostly useless in the bush. Atlas straps are nice and readily available locally for $30 anywhere. Look to Dutchware for some nice tree straps and dutch buckles for the same 30 and alot more reliable.

I have had my hammock bought from woot when they first sold them. I use mine a lot and it has really held up. I would recommend the purchase again.

Question: can you remove the mosquito netting if you don’t want to use it?

Eta: I found my answer on amazon. You can hang it with net side down to use it without the net. :wink:

I have one of these, used it last summer and just LOVE it! No tree straps included, but in addition to some straps, there are some other things you might want/need.
1 - Get some 1" poly webbing with cam buckles and hooks. Harbor Freight has a pair of them for around $10. The poly straps wont stretch like nylon straps do and these are well over half the price (and longer and better) than getting Slap Straps or any other “strap system” from the hammock makers. Also, the cam buckles are nice in that they are easy to adjust (if you wrap it correctly around a tree). Once you clip your hammock into the strap’s hooks, you can then use the cam buckle to take in or let more length out of your hammock for more/less arch and get that perfect angle without doing much work.
2 - Get a decent length of para cord. It’s infinitely useful for camping and hanging things. You will use this as a ridgeline over your hammock to either hang stuff or to hang Point #3.
3 - Cheap tarp. Get a cheap long rectangular tarp from somewhere like HarborFreight or wherever. This will be your rain fly and doesn’t cost a ton. It should be large enough to cover the entire length of your hammock’s straps from both mount points. This will keep even torrential downpours out and let you sleep completely dry (vs a rain fly).
4 - Get some cheap tent stakes, the metal stick kind not the plastic kind. These will be used to stake down your tarp should you need to use it. $4? from WalMart or wherever.
5 - Get a small stuff sack (army navy store, camping supply store, wherever, costs $5) to store everything but the hammock and tarp in (straps, stakes, paracord, etc).
Hope this helps!

Meh

So if you are 6’4" 235 do you go with the double, or is that unworkable and/or the single adequate?

This looks like a giant alien cocoon or something.
