Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great all in one hammock. This is my initial review, as I have not tested it in the field yet... This is my first hammock. I camp with a group of guys who all swear by 'em. I chose this one because I was intrigued by th lay flat design. Sure enough it works great for that. The hammock is extremely easy to set up. Taking just a few minutes on my first attempt. You don't need to learn any knots, and it is very easy to make adjustments. The integrated bug net is great and extremely easy to use. This is a "plug and play" hammock. Simple, easy to use and comes with just about everything you need rolled up into one sack. I highly recommend it, particularly for beginners.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost but not quite Decent execution but the tarp is too short on the sides. A bridge hammock needs a shallower pitch due to the spreader arms pivoting during getting into/out of the hammock. This requires a tarp with longer side area to properly cover the setup. I'd say if they added 2 feet to each side they would be in a better position. I'd also say that I, personally, find the shoulder pinch to be an issue unless you are using a robust inflatable pad. Given those two issues the will probably get relegated to summer only use (most likely car camping). It's just not a serious contender for backpacking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as comfortable as my Eno I bought this hammock with high hopes. I wanted something easier to set up than my Eno hammock and bug net. The all in one kit 2as attractive. And was initially excited about the shape of the hammock. I thought the rectangular shape would allow my sleeping​ pad to fit better than by Eno for colder weather. I'm trying no too buy too much stuff that can't multipurposed like an under quilt. But it turns out the structured side walls press on my arms and making it feel too confined. just not the feeling I want with a hammock. The build quality was awesome. Typical for most REI products. I just decided it was not for me and had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hammock, needs better straps Four nights into this setup and I can say it's a keeper. I have decades of hammock camping (net, parachute, Asym gathered end) and can say this is the best set up I've used. Yes, the fly is small. But I spent 3 hours in a driving rain and stayed bone dry. I won't be lounging or cooking under it, but it's perfect for a minimalist set up, and I have other tarps for when I want more space. The only issue is with the sewn together strap/sling set up. Bad move sewing the straps to the slings. The slings are great! But five feet of strap is not nearly long enough. I cut off the straps so I could use a 10' strap/clip/buckle setup I already had. Works great with the REI slings. It's super stable and flat. My 6'1" 200 lbs wide frame slept great on my side, curled up in a ball and on my stomach. If I could give it 4.5 stars I would. Provide longer, separate straps and it's definitely worth five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quarter Dome Air Hammock I decided to give this hammock a try on my most recent backpacking trip. I really liked this hammock, the set up is very easy, it is light and very comfortable. I am 6'2" and had plenty of room in this hammock. I had seen reviews that were worried about the rain fly. On our second night we had very heavy rain and wind, I had no problems with rain coming into the hammock. I would definitely recommend this hammock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good All in One Hammock I have used hammocks for several years and, as a side sleeper, never got the greatest night’s sleep. The flat lay of the bridge hammock will hopefully help with this. I have only slept one night in this hammock but overall I was very impressed with its design and comfort. The Pros: The Quarter Dome hammock has everything you need right out of the box to camp overnight and all for a very reasonable price. It comes with rain fly, hammock, straps, whoopee slings, bug net, stuff sack and stakes. It is not bare bones either; REI has thought of all the little touches that make hammock camping more enjoyable such as: hanging loops, tension locks, side pockets, stake bag integrated into the stuff sack, and even drip line cords. The adjustable bug net design is fantastic. It will definitely keep the net off your face, and allows you to hang light items from the loops on its ridgeline. I hung my Luci light from one of the loops and it held it there with very little sag. My full length under quilt also snugged up well so I see no issues with that. Finally, my son who is 6’4” definitely fits in the hammock, so it is plenty long. The Cons: I would prefer to have removable spreader bars so I could put them on the outside of my pack when I hike. The whoopie slings attach permanently to the tree straps. I would like it better if they were attached to the hammock suspension instead. That would give me more flexibility to use other straps if I need to hang on very large trees. The biggest issue I see with this hammock system is the rain fly. It will definitely keep you dry if you have a straight down rain. However, if there is wind, I don’t think it is large enough to keep you dry. I will probably use mine as a cook fly and use my ENO House Fly with the hammock. The final issue is shoulder squeeze – I am 6’2”, 210 lbs and have fairly broad shoulders. If the bottom of the hammock was a couple of inches wider, it would be much more comfortable. As, I said earlier, I am a side sleeper, so this will not be a big issue. Overall, it is well designed and I will definitely keep it. My first night’s sleep went very well and I was able to comfortably sleep on my side the entire night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for bikepacking. It's a boat. Only had it about two weeks and have been testing it out before next weekend's bikepacking trip, will update review afterward. I'm still concerned about the distance required between trees for set up. This thing is big, your trees need to be far apart. Instructions say 17 feet. The set up was quick and easy with clear directions printed within the stuff sack. It took a few tries with my butt on the ground before I adjusted the the white cords tight enough. It's light, feels delicate, but is very well-made. Weight limit is 250 lbs. First time lying in it I felt seasick and had sit up for a while. It's a boat. With the poles on the end, I'd thought it would be flatter and more supported, but it's only held up by the ropes on the four corners and you're in this deep shell. Sitting up inside for a bit before lying down has helped. As other reviewers have noted, the pocket placement isn't ideal, they are perfectly centered so you lean against the interior one when getting in and bump your legs against anything in the exterior pocket when getting out. Overhead loops conveniently placed, perfect for a light or safely hanging up your glasses. Slept two nights in it and friends who've tried it out have refused to get out of it. Easy to get in and out of and no one tipped it over. Sways and wobbles a lot when wiggling around in there with the 4 tension points on the corners, but didn't flip. Hopefully this holds true while shimmying into bike shorts and wrestling with sports bras. The latter is difficult while lying down, but the deep sides of this hammock afford a lot of privacy. Two of the best sleeps I've had in a while. As a side sleeper, this was a thousand times more comfortable than air mat on the ground. I'm 5'8 and had tons of room lengthwise to stretch out. Definitely need an air pad with this hammock to insulate you from cool air on the other side and avoid everyone seeing else seeing the outline of your backside. Some of us have more to display than others. Used my Coleman self-inflating air mat and a light sleeping bag. Photo is a friend in the hammock with my dog and no mat. Lows were in the 60's, stayed toasty warm. Shopping for a different mat as the Coleman is a pain to deflate and roll up. Many a biking trip morning spent sweating and swearing while rolling it up as tight as possible. Bought the air hammock for the extra comfort, ease of set up and mostly to have less to carry on the bike, but it's not helping to minimize as much as I had intended. Hammock takes up about as much space on the bike as my tent due to the poles, but it's lightweight, 3 lbs 2 oz. Regular hammock plus rain-fly and bug-net would likely take up as much room, have cost as much bought separately and not have the super easy set-up you get with bug-net attached. Tried out the rain-fly briefly when it sprinkled during an afternoon nap and stayed dry. The Velcro straps for the extra cord are convenient and help avoid tangles. Little experience with a hammock rain-fly, made a lot of noise flapping about in the wind. Guessing it needed to be much tighter. Comes with four lightweight stakes in case you don't have suitable trees nearby. Overall very pleased with this product, especially the high quality of the materials and sturdy, light-weight construction. As a larger woman, I'm always concerned about breaking things, but after the first night, I have absolute faith in this hammock...unlike the seams of my bike shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great new hammock Finally was able to take this out on a 4 day excursion to Ouachita National Forest and Eagle Rock Loop this past week so I'll go over some pros and cons. I really like this hammock and while there are some things they could make better, it's certainly a fun hammock. While we were out there a really intense storm hit. The other reviewer that said the fly wouldn't protect you from the rain I guess hasn't used it in a storm yet. I got a slight amount of misting at my head and that was it and the storm lasted from about 5pm until around 2am. There were times the wind got really strong yet I remained dry. I also used my Air Rail in it and while it's easy to use a pad inside the hammock, the Air Rail is not the one you would want to use. I love that pad, but not for a hammock. It was warm enough that I threw my under quilt inside with me but ended up not even needing it. I see no reason that, at least my EE quilt, wouldn't attach to the bottom of it and plan on playing around with that a little. Pros: Easy to set up Comes with easily adjustable straps(though I still like my ENO Helios) Comfortable Includes stakes, bug net and fly all in one Can be flipped over to use without the bug net One of the few that can be used to go to ground with and still use the bug net. Stable- essentially barrel rolled completely around while flipping an Air Rail pad as well and never came close to flipping the hammock All of the stake lines on the fly are 1. reflective(which is GREAT at night and looks really cool too) 2. have tensioners already built in and 3. have velcro sewn onto the fly so you can keep them rolled up and attached when not in use. Cons: I wish the pockets were in different places. I kept wanting to throw my leg up and while I could with no problem, if I had anything in the pocket I'd have my leg on it Would be nice to have a pocket underneath for a pad. As for the rain fly...I DO wish it was larger. It's perfectly fine to keep you covered and it kept the rain off of me for about 8 or so hours so it definitely works, but I would have liked to have a little more room to move around under it. I definitely recommend this hammock for people to try out. It's super easy to set up and quite comfortable. I think REI has a good thing going and with a few improvements they could have a nearly perfect product.

Can it also be set up on the ground?

Asked by: climber_1320
Scope above answered it about as well as it can be answered. I own this hammock and I suppose if you were above tree line you could utilize it as just a bug net style bivi with a tarp. You can use sticks or trekking poles to put up the tarp and suspend the bugnet I suppose. The fabric is plenty strong enough for ground dwelling, but that is not the intention of course.

Its a single layer hammock with no bug netting underneath. Will the nylon stop biting bugs from the underside? mosquitos, horse flys, etc.

Asked by: TampaCCT
The fabric is right between the ultralight fabrics and the pretty heavy stout and my experience is that the fabric they used will be pretty hard for mosquitoes to get through, but those little things are satans spawn. I use an underquilt or a sleeping pad in this and all my hammocks so I don't ever have a problem. But if it is just for day lounging and the mosquitoes are really bad, maybe thrown in a blanket. But for actual overnight backpacking style you will most likely have insulation and that will easily bar the mosquitoes.

Can trekking poles be used in place of the spreader bars?

Asked by: Flight33
The spreader bars are a very nice, I am guessing 10 mm lightweight poles. I am assuming DAC as that is a standard top grade pole, and the stakes are DAC. But they are very lightweight for the purpose. Yes I own one.

What is the spreader bar length in total set up width? Also what is the minimum set up length between two points (trees)? I believe REI would sell more items if more information was given on their products. More accurate thorough specs makes me buy more!

Asked by: Hammockman59
Okay, Hammockman59 (me) bought one. But the 17 feet answer is an estimate given in the instructions. I hung it a 11 feet, and that is more than I needed. It could have been even a bit less. Again, more ACCURITE information and specs would definitely help. Although the 33 inch spreader bars is accurate, thanks!
