So I've had this hammock for years, but never went camping in areas that would allow me to set it up (not many trees). After holding on to it for so many years, I finally took it out and used it this summer...and I'm hooked!
The set up was super easy and largely self explanatory. I did struggle at first to get the interior poles into their slots in the hammock, but it has been easier over time. Also, I sometimes struggle with zipping up the tent, due to the pull with the poles put in.
Keep in mind, setting up a camping hammock takes some getting used to (thinking about the angles, the level, height, etc.). Try it a few times, until you get the hang of it (literally and figuratively).
I'm a relatively small guy (5'8") and I fit well in this hammock with room to spare. I can easily sleep on the diagonal, and it feels totally secure and I haven't ever fear tipping over.
The pocket on the bottom for a sleeping pad was immensely helpful - it kept my sleeping pad from sliding around in the night. It won't fit all sleeping pad sizes, so be sure to measure for that.
Also, setting up the tarp takes some planning and forethought. You'll rarely get it to look like the tarp in the product photo. I also wish the included line was a bit longer. Remember, it needs to be pre-cut to use all the way around so plan for that.
I may have an older model because my hammock doesn't have the "inside accessory pockets" advertised (although it looks identical to the hammock in the photos). Not sure how many models are out there, just a general note.
Overall this is a great product for the price; I would (and have!) recommended it to others.
Pros: Comfort, sleeping pad pocket, easy set up, netting, size.
Cons: Tarp (could be easier to set up, I think).
