Even better, it's available in a rainbow of colors to suit any mood or style.

"I purchased this hammock about 2 months ago and I'm in love. It's lightweight, fits easily into my overnight or day pack, and goes up in seconds. It's roomy enough for my companion to join me for a lounge, and I've spent two nights in it. I slept like a baby for the first time every in the woods. No pressure points, no sore back, and comfortable temperature. I love being able to hike half a day and set up a comfy spot for lunch, a nap, or some reading, and know that in just a few moments, I can be packed up for the hike home. I have recommended this hammock to at least 10 different people since owning it." says TNPensFan in their product review.
