It's of great quality (very similar to others on the market) and is a new must-have in my life! Hammock life is where it's at people! It's impossible to be stressed or angry whilst hammocking :) Well worth the price paid even comes with a carry bag (although it's quite heavy so you probably won't want to carry the whole thing very far!)"
