This is not a Hennessy or a Warbonnet by any stretch of the imagination; however, when you are backcountry camping with three boys (3, 4 and 6yo), you will be glad you bought something that, if it rips or tears, you are not furious at your kids. So far they remain intact and so are the hammocks.I decided to bond with my three children by taking them on hiking trips here in NH, which has crazy bugs throughout the spring and summer but didn't want to shell out $150 for a top grade hammock. Through considerable research, I found this steal!Its is not perfect but... I found a cheap alterations expert who reinforced the stitching and added webbing to the net to prevent tearing. I bought a separate suspension system, too. With the modifications and new suspension system, I spent a total of $90. Throw in a ten dollar tarp form the hardware store and I had my sleep and shelter system for under $100. Two boys can easily share one hammock since the weight capacity is 400lbs. Also, the ENO suspension straps I use allow me to double hammock the boys on one suspension system, so I can utilize one pair of straps and one tarp for the three guys sleeping in two modified hammocks. Recently, I set my hammock inside the same tarp shelter during a rainstorm and stayed comfortable and dry. It greatly reduces the weight load when you don't have to carry separate tarps and straps for each hammock!!!Of course a bag and underquilt comes separately and at a greater expense if you don't already possess those products. I am currently searching for a LIGHT WEIGHT, SYNTHETIC BLEND UNDERQUILT that can fit my budget of under $100, so if any one reading this knows of a company selling such a product, please let me know!!!
