    Sounds like you got yourself a bargain fella :)

    I'd be interested to know if you still think it was a tenner well spent after a weekend of use (as a shortie, this might be a hammock for me)

    Well the hammock has stood upto the weekend bushcraft and what a good investment it's was really comfy and easy to get in&out of although if you don't set your sleeping system in the man bowl of the hammock you will fall out but once set correctly you are not coming out as I did fall out but after a rejig no worrys even trying my hardest afterwards not a chance, it even has a cover that goes over you and us wind proof so all in all it's a tenner well spent there will be pics I believe will be on the Plymouth two week meet chat . And if I can I will get some here
