Reviews - Lawson Hammock Company Blue Ridge Camping Hammock
I purchased this hammock tent for a camping roadtrip across the Southwest last summer, and it worked wonderfully. I loved having the option of hanging it or using it like a traditional tent, and the setup is simple and takes just a few minutes. Like another reviewer mentioned, I would recommend a sleeping pad of some sort even when it's a hammock, as it needs a little extra firmness underneath to keep you from sagging. Also, be aware that you need to purchase hanging straps (I used ENO ones) as the hammock doesn't come with them. Overall it's a great little tent, and I highly recommend it!
I have bought 3 of these for use in Brazilian jungle. They are absolutely water tight. Plenty of elbow room inside, easy in and out, and extremely stable.
A great week of camping.
I just got back from a 8 day 7 night hiking trip and had an awesome time in large part thanks to Lawson. It rained almost every night but I managed to stay mostly dry and comfortable. It was extremely easy to set up. Finding properly spaced trees was never a problem on the slopes of mountains in Vermont whereas finding clear, level ground (for a tent) would have been. Two important things I learned were that you absolutely need a sleeping pad. The pad adds important insulation and rigidity to the bottom which is otherwise cold and uncomfortably saggy. Also, you must make sure that the hammock is hung as level as possible. Otherwise rain will drip under the rain fly and into the hammock making for cold and soggy sleeping bags.
