I almost pulled the trigger on one of these on eBay but did a quick search first. This is a super lightweight camping and hiking hammock by the most reputable company that makes such things. It looks like ENO launched a sub6, but I'll sacrifice an ounce for about 50 bucks! Looks like the Scouts ended up with too many of these things?

Free shipping is only at $125 so unless you buy a handful it's probably gonna cost you the $7.50.

Extra tip: Sierra has the lightweight Helios straps on sale for $15. Pretty nice, light, packable combo for $50!

Edit: I have no idea why the total was changed to 29.99?

I actually did the same thing as you, including buying the Helios at Sierra. To note, from what I read the Sub6 most likely only replaced the biners with toggles. Regardless, build a cheap costco under quilt and tried it in the backyard over the weekend. Pretty comfy.

Nice! Stoked to have something much more packable. I brought a full size hammock to Europe and it just wasn't worth the bulk.

Just some FYIs from someone who likes hammock camping...

1. This is a good price on a light, packable "lounging" hammock. It is not very comfortable for overnight sleeping. There are ~$20 Chinese made hammocks sometimes on Amazon that are similar materials with more questionable QA, if you prefer that route. Or spend $25 more than this deal to get a superior hammock (1 ounce heavier, and much tougher and comfortable enough for overnight sleeping) made in the USA (Warbonnet, Dutchware, DreamHammock, Hammock Gear). This is a good middle option.
3. For overnight comfort, most experienced hangers will agree that an 11' long hammock is way better. At that length, sleeping "diagonally" across the hammock will lay you nice and flat. Not so with shorter hammocks like this.This one isn't even 9' long and it'll "banana" you up.
4. This is perfectly appropriate for a "hang around, maybe take a nap" hammock
5. If you ignore all of this and decide you're going to take this camping in 40 degree weather, make sure you take a sleeping pad with you, and use it in the hammock, because you will be COLD due to the air against you underneath the hammock.

If you want a tougher and more comfortable 11' long hammock to backpack with, it'll run you about $60. Check out Dream Hammock, Warbonnet, Dutchware, HammockGear, Arrowhead, and Simply Light Designs (among others) if interested. Getting one with a ridgeline included will enhance comfort.

And like others said, you need tree straps. Don't use a rope. It's more difficult to use and harms trees.

Have fun, please understand the limitations.

Well don't hold out on us! Send the link!

When I search Amazon I see this exact model used as a warehouse deal for 50 or the slightly updated version (sub6) for 69.95. that's pretty sweet if your Amazon shows it cheaper!

Thanks for the tips! I got this one for napping while camping, not as my primary sleep system... something light I can throw in a daypack. Maybe if I get enough good naps in I'll go all in on the hammock camping!
