This Hammock was fairly easy to hang (and I suspect will be easier next time) and was incredibly comfortable to relax in. It is small and portable and the additional straps that I added to my purchase were very helpful. I had some trouble tying the knot, but managed to get it all hung in about 15 minutes. I ordered the double and my son and I were both able to fit in comfortably. In fact, my son and his best friend (both 7) were able to get in with me, no problem.My only complaint (and this has NOTHING to do with the company or the hammock) was my color choice. When I chose the hammock, I purchased the crimson, because I liked the way it looked. What I was not aware of, is that this hammock sort of cocoons you in and I found the red to be too bold and intense. I wish that I had chosen a more relaxing color, like green or blue. Just a thought I'd like to mention, if you are deciding on your color- you might want to take that into consideration. Again, that was totally on me, and has nothing to do with the quality of the hammock. Overall, I am incredibly pleased and I suspect I will get a great amount of use out of this hammock.
Quality of the hammock is very good, the carabiners are solid. Stitching on the tree straps is also good, they're lightweight but feel substantial and solid. My only gripe is that there are not enough loops on the end of the tree straps. Wise Owl tree straps have only like 4 possible loops, where competitor tree straps have 7 or 8, giving more flexibility in how to hang the hammock. This is only a minor issue, though, and can often be fixed by double or triple wrapping the strap around a tree. Overall, the quality of materials and workmanship on the hammock and straps is very good. I would recommend this hammock for someone who wants casual lounging or is just trying to dip their toes into hammock camping.
All three of my kids age 17-23 have had hammocks for the past 7 years. My oldest son is the resident expert, and was doubtful on the quality of this hammock, and encouraged his sister (17 year old) to go with another brand name. My daughter got it and set it up without a problem right away. The material is super strong- she and two of her friends laid out in it, and it never showed signs of giving. It is lightweight, and easy to pack in its attached bag. My son was so impressed, he actually plans on ordering one too. It is an unbelievable buy for a double size. I would highly recommend this hammock. It was also nice that Wise Owl Outfitters sent an email with helpful hints for hanging. The only thing we may do in addition is buy straps to hang it instead of the ropes. Overall, an excellent buy!
I think this hammock is great for the price. The carabiners are a bit heavy. Replaced them with cheap but strong aluminum ones and cut off 2oz. When laying in it I can just barely feel the seem between the two colors. I think the seem feels a little tighter than the cloth giving it a little less give. It doesn't have much of an effect on comfort but all things equal I think I would prefer no seam...it does make it a lot prettier though. The included tree straps worked great. They are very slightly heavier(about 3oz per strap) than some specialty brands but at the price I can't justify paying that much extra for other straps. Total weight for me after switching out the carabiners was about 20oz. A little heavier than ideal, but not that far off from ultralight specialty brands that cost a lot more.It is very slightly shorter than I prefer.An extra foot would go a long way to making this super comfy to sleep in.So basically it is very slightly worse than spending four times the price on specialty ultralight brand products and at this price point is an incredible value while still performing really well.
Got the Wise Owl hammock and was a little bit apprehensive because my hammock experience isn't very much. I was emailed instructions and instructions came with the hammock so I was good to go. I got it hung up and I'd be a liar if I said I didn't back flip the first time. Thankfully, I wasn't too far off of the ground and it was a slow flip. I looked at what I did wrong and got in it no problem the second time. I even got to lie down in it without falling out. I did notice a few strings that were frayed on one edge but other than that, it was good to go. I ordered a single but due to my larger size, I should have ordered a double in order to be more comfortable. But that's ok because I'll order me a double and keep the single for my wife. She fits in it better than me since she's smaller. And she didn't fall out. lol The straps were perfect and the length of the hammock is perfect as well. I had fun while testing it out and can't wait until this Fall to really have fun with it. Thanks Wise Owl. You've got a customer for life.
