    I am no expert on hammocks but it is hard to beat the Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter for an inexpensive, well-made hammock.

        I read your review and posted my thoughts on the Thai hammock above. Later, after watching the video you produced on the Thai hammock I thought maybe there is a purpose for it. Your son in the hammock basically shows the purpose. 1. Smaller, lighter, people. 2. People who may not use or need a higher quality hammock because they do not use one that often. If those were the “requirements” then the Thai hammock may serve a customer well enough….if, as you already pointed out, they do not mind waiting for it and the shipping is not to much.

        Mr Hansen, I appreciate what you do and always enjoy reading your reviews. Thanks.

    I’ve used a couple of hammocks but honestly I didn’t know that there was more to them than just the fibers, though it’s my husband hanging them up. I’ll be reading through your reviews to get past my beginner knowledge the next couple of days.

  3. I have two of these hammocks. I bought the first a few years ago It was in rip stop fabric, it differs from those currently provided. This first hammock served me a lot of times in several years, and it is even the one I use the most to spend nights in the forest. I had a problem with the seams I remade with son for sewing boat sails (I have not had another problems since). It seems that on recent versions seams were strengthened. I use it a lot because it is small, and light fastening system really simple and fast (the straps are actually a little bit short, but you can add or change for larger).

  4. Ok! I have watched your video now! I fix this hammock by passing a large string or strap through the loops, (my first hammock was originally with large straps), then I just take the two ends on one side and pass several times round a tree trunk, I end up with a shoe knot. I do the same thing at the other end of the hammock by adjusting the length and detention. There you go!
    Thank you for your blog and your book, it is great, I really enjoyed it. You will write a second Volume?

  5. Super you also made hoods! Personally, the models I realize some years ago, were a little more complex, less “square”. And I had split legs that cover the upper back and torce, very nice against the cold!

    Hi Derek!
    Great video and very helpful!
    Im looking to buy a couple hammocks myself, do you know of any other hammocks of this kind (the portable, foldable type) that is made in Thailand? Perhaps of a better quality?
    Looking forward to hearing from you!

      There may be many vendors represented in Thailand but I won’t know for sure. Check for the Grand Trunk skeeter beeter or the Byer of Maine Moskito Kakoon or the Hammock Bliss No see um no more.
