What customers say about the Lawson Hammock Blue Ridge Camping Hammock
One reviewer stated I went camping for the first time with this hammock on a lake in the Cascades outside of Seattle in early in June. It rained all night the second night and I stayed dry, while my friends on the ground all got a bit wet due to problems with inadequate flys, etc. It was a noisy night with the rain hitting the hammock fly, but again very dry. I had some gear under the hammock that also stayed fairly well protected from the rain.
Another reviewer said I have had the Lawson hammock (camo) for over a year now. I’ve taken it on at least 6 backpacking trips that usually last a couple nights. At 4.5 pounds, it is kind of heavy and large for backpacking, but for the price it is worth the extra weight.
This reviewer said I probably will never use a ground tent again. As long as I can find 2 suitable trees, I have a place to sleep. I’ve slept on sloping terrain, above thorn bushes and tree roots, above creek rocks and even puddles. I’ve found it is much easier to find 2 good trees than it is to find perfect ground (plus you have less impact on the environment). No pressure points on your body or stubborn rocks under your body.
One backpacker mentioned I have used many camping hammocks through the years and must say that this one is by far the best! It is extremely comfortable, easy to use, has bug netting, comes with rainfly that attaches to the hammock so you don’t have to run extra lines all over the place. It can also be used on the ground as a “regular” tent. I am approx. 6’3″ and over 200lbs and felt like I had plenty of room. I was hesitant to purchase but glad I did…highly recommend!
