The Grand Trunk Single Parachute Nylon Hammock packs down to the size of a coconut so you can throw it in your backpack for an ultralight sleep system that lets you leave your tent and sleeping mat at home. With 10 different color combinations to choose from, all compressing down to a tiny 4 x 7 inches.
Pulling the hammock out of the stuff sack it is clear that the hammock is well made and the parachute nylon of good quality. The ropes are strongly made and properly knotted. Once suitable trees (or structures) are found the hammock is extremely straightforward to set up and very comfortable to sit or lie down in. Taking the hammock down again is just as easy as it was to put up, and the hammock is easy stuffed into the incorporated stuff sack. Packed up the single parachute nylon hammock and ropes are about the size of a water bottle. The stuff sack does not have any compression straps, but the hammock can easily be compressed further into a backpack if space is a bit tight.
The Grand Trunk Single Parachute Nylon Hammock is great for the backyard, picnics, hiking and backpacking. Great for backyard and car camping use, the Grand Trunk Single-Person and Two-Person Parachute Nylon Hammocks are extra strong (i.e., they could each support a person, a couple, a person and a dog, a person and two kids, or ? well, you get the idea). Made from a durable, light but very strong Parachute nylon silk. It comes complete with 2 pieces of a preknotted climbing rope for hanging and tough steel carabiners for convenience. It has a built on storage pocket that is attached to the hammock and doubles as a convenient pocket when you are in the hammock, good for sunscreen, glasses or even a drink. These hammocks stuff into a sack the size of a softball, so you can easily toss one into the car for a day at the beach or a weekend of camping and fishing. Discover the ease and comfort of hammock life and as they say "It beats the ground." Yes it does.
Often a hammock is more comfortable simply if it is larger. The Grand Trunk Single is a perfect single for camping since it has at least a foot more length than most other singles. It sleeps the best of all single parachute nylon hammocks that we tested and was our favorite to camp in. It can even fit a couple sitting up with ease.
