Looks very familiar...and heavy.

Hammock Buyer Rule #1: Never, ever buy a hammock from a vendor who doesn't tell you how long it is. Ever.

Not only does the dangting weigh dang near 5 pounds, the size of that carry bag is humongous when compared to other hammocks ar half the price (and less).

Yep looks huge and heavy. A hybrid bridge/ gathered in hammock? Could be comfy, but I wouldn't wanna tote that sucker. Not a lot of info on the site either. Makes me wary.

And for off brands that do quote a length, clarify if that includes the Loops. I have sent requests to a few in the past, and they do count the attached loops in the length.
