Triple nylon stitched seams for durability and strength
Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong parachute nylon material, triple nylon stitched seams, folds away into its own practical stuff bag, supplied with heavy duty carabiners for easy set up. The Tropical Hammock also comes with a Suspension Attachment System to make setting up and securing around trees quicker and easier. With two steel carabiners for attaching the hammock connects very easily to the Suspension Attachment System.
Pros – Very strong, can support big guys.
Long and wide.
Inexpensive compared to the competition.
Includes suspension system
Could be lighter weight by replacing carabiners for lighter versions.
Suspension system will bite into the trees unless you take steps to prevent that from happening.
Thoughts – This is a good quality, inexpensive hammock. Easy to setup, easy to pack away. The suspension system is very basic and not the best but it works. I would advice bringing additional paracord when you are out with this hammock to make sure that you can find a good location to throw your hammock up at.
