I was hopeful more than doubtful, but there was some doubt – $129 and the weight limit, the size. I have struggled with insomnia for years so I was hopeful that the hammock would work as a decent bed. Wow? Probably not the word that fully reflects my reaction to this hammock. It is amazing. I’ve only slept in it for three nights, and the difference in how I feel is marked. Click here to buy it for the same great price i got.I am 6’2″ and weigh 205#. I feel like I’m enveloped in security when I get inside the thing.It is surprizingly lightweight for something made of steel. I have limited space for this – a large room, but a bit overfurnished, no bed though. I slept on a sofa for years because it would keep me from thrashing about when I did manage to sleep. So, I have to move it around based on whether or not I’m using it. It is easy.I refused to read the instructions for putting it together when I saw the parts. It is so obvious how this hammock assembles that there really isn’t any need – – – hrm, I wonder what the directions said, anyway.I like that the height of the bed is adjustable too – with six holes going down the support bars to handle that. More great camping sleeping options.I don’t know who the engineer is who acheived this design, but (s)he is very creative. The form of the hammock makes it take up less room than nine feet even – in that low profile furniture allows for a couple of extra feet if you are placing it inside where for a regular hammock there would be an obstacle.It’s really hard not to fall asleep when you are in it.
