I don't like that it is really set up for pad use only. How will you attach an under quilt?. Too heavy for what it is also. All those lines...

Haven't tried it either and agree with Ken's general assessment. Seems like the basic problem they were trying to address was flatness, which, IMO you can address with a bridge hammock for a lot less hassle.

I looked into these myself recently and found several cases where the zipper part tears away from the netting because of high stress on that area-remarks from a buyer were no/poor customer service response and basically SOL on the Hammock..Not Good!!

Way heavier, more complex, more expensive than other all in one set ups. It's like they did no real homework before coming out with this. No under quilt compatibility either. Lose, lose.

Almost 60 ounces and nearly $400? They're on crack.

I emailed them with some questions a while back, I'll second the no customer support comment.
