Not all hammocks are created equal, and some on the market are more notorious for hurting people than others. If you’re in the market a hammock, always check the internet for reviews and safety reports, then study the product yourself. Make sure the support straps are strong and of quality, and be sure the stitching and seam work are up to par, because if there are issues with the build out or the material, then you could be in for a world of hurt when you’re least expecting it. Sure, a hammock can go up nicely, and can even hang for a period of time without issue, but what if you fall asleep, and what if it fails you, and you drop, and fall four, six, ten feet… deep in the woods? Yikes. That brings me to another bit of advice: Always test the thing prior to heading out on any trip.
The material is solid. Perhaps, not the strongest hammock I’ve ever tested, but for the price, FiveJoy has delivered. The hammock is compact and portable, and is built of durable, tear and mildew resistant, quick dry material. The fabric is comfortable, and soft, and inviting, and almost always makes me fall asleep when I relax in it and meditate. All in all, I came away impressed with FiveJoy’s hammock. The mosquito net is a lovely touch!
