Grand Trunk Single Parachute Nylon Hammock with Carabiners – The Travle Hammock – Review

Today’s world is too technology driven, and people need a break from it now and again. That’s why getting back to nature is becoming popular.

However, tents are getting more complicated, and they are coming in larger sizes that are now as big as a small apartment. They are getting heavier, and you need too much gear to go with them for a trip out into the wild.

Hammocks are replacing tents, and this one is a single person hammock that lets you go out into the wild and do so in comfort.

Final Verdict

When I need to get out and away, a single tent or nowadays a single hammock is the only way to go. Sometimes in tandem, I take both. That way I have more options to play with. Most of the time the pop-up tent holds chow, and the rest of the gear and the hammock is for sleeping a relaxing.

With the Grand Trunk, you can do the same or go it alone with just the hammock, mosquito net, and a weather cover. All of this is a lot cheaper and easier to carry than many of the tents you find out there, and you have more freedom of action as well.

The hammock is rugged and durable, and it will last for years of use. Indoors it doubles as a chair, bed, and gives you more floor space in a room. All combines to make it a stylish piece of furniture as well as comfortable as well.​
