treklight hammock

Recommended Posts

so if any of you are like me, waking up with ants/ticks/spiders all over you is NEVER fun, so i was looking for a way to stay off the ground and comfortable without carrying alof of extra weight. enter the treklight hammock. post-1847-13851497992817_thumb.jpg

 

this little guy fits in a 1 pound pack and will compress to just about the size of my fist so it is great for not adding alot of weight or taking up alot of space in the bag. it also holds up to 400LBS which im sure is the safety rating and could probably hold more. i set it up in 4 minutes (yes i timed it) on the first time using it with just some paracord and 2 load rated carabiner's as you can see in the pic. hopped in and i was comfortable and off the ground and happy.

 

Pro's; lightweight, durable material, heavy load rating, compressable, does its job

 

Con's; NOT waterproof, doesnt come with equipment to hang.

BUT.... the site does sell a tarp to hang over you that is waterproof and a rope and biner bundle so you can hang it so the option is there, but with a little knowledge of knots you can make your own way to hang it.

 

it retails for 64.99 for the single hammock which is 10ft long and 5 ft wide. overall i would say it is worth the price, especially if you want to sleep in comfort and off the ground.

seems like any other hammock... not really a Bug out hammock... I'd rather have the ability to sleep (with water proofing and bug netting) for a little extra weight and space....

 

Does look like a good recreational hammock though

Exit,

if you ave an example of a waterptoof with bug netting hammock id love to see the specs on it, all of those i saw were veryheavy and took alot of space, and i always think when i am bugging out i need to be light so i can move fast.

shadowplyr, I did a review on the Jungle Hammock not long ago. It is what I use and includes no-seum screen and a built in tarp for waterproofing. Weighs 2lbs and packs in a small bag. Use search to find the thread. It is under "Jungle Hammock".

i dont see any pics of it when it is packed, when you get it could you post a pic of it compressed?

 

I tell you what I will do. When I get home tonight I will get it out of my GHB and take a picture of it in its bag. Should be able to post it tommorrow for you.
