Setup was fairly easy, once I found two trees properly distanced apart (about 9 feet is optimal). Farther than that, and the ropes won't reach. Shorter, and it will sag too far into a U. That was really the only challenge. Ropes go and hook around a tree easily, then you run one more rope to raise up the BUG NET! The zippered bug net works great. Easy in and out, and it provides enough distance between your body and the wilderness.
The hammock held up my frame of 170 lbs. It's rated to hold up to 250, but I'm not sure I'd want to push past 200 on it. It was very stable though. It was a comfortable night of sleep!
-If you aren't used to sleeping in a U shape, you might have a rough first night. It seems obvious that you aren't going to be sleeping flat, but until you get through the night in it, it's hard to know for sure how your back and muscles will react to it.
-Movement/wind will rock you at night. It's a different sensation for sure.
-Pulling the hammock more taut keeps you from having too deep of a U to sleep in.
-There is much less insulation than a tent. It's much cooler to sleep in.
