This is not a one-size-fits all camping hammock; meaning that, in addition to the great features the Thunderbird comes with, you can customize everything from the size of the hammock to the type of material which it's made with. If your specific camping condition's needs aren't met with traditional hammocks, then you have to check out the Thunderbird. Here's a closer look at what you're getting:
As explained by SectionHiker, the ThunderBird hammock isn't the most lightweight camping hammock available. So, while you could use this year-round, it might be more ideal for shorter hikes.
Strength: One of the coolest things about buying a camping hammock from Dream Hammocks is that almost every piece of the hammock is customizable--this includes in the fabric (and strength) of your hammock. When you order the Thunderbird, you can choose from a variety of nylon fabrics that can hold different weight capacities. You can also order additional straps if you want to ensure that your hammock stays firmly in place from wherever you hang it (though no one has complained of this issue so far).
Capacity: Although these hammocks could hold two smaller occupants, this is probably best used as a single. Just be sure to check the weight requirements before deciding which type of fabric you want the hammock made with.
Use: Dream Hammocks labels this as a "four-season hammock" and there's good reason for it. Not only does this camping hammock come with the overcover and underquilt, but it also has a bug net you can use. Users have also bought the separate tarp add-on in order to increase the internal warmth when inside the hammock. That's why the customization factor of this is so cool. You can add and remove different layers based on your unique situational needs!
Price: This is a bit more expensive than many of the other single camping hammocks you might find, but remember that these are custom-made. You're also paying for excellent customer service and support to ensure that you get everything that you need from this purchase.
