Good idea - good quality - stupid design

By

The quality of the product is excellent and the idea good but it makes no sense to use anywhere in any situation. Once you are in, there is zero breeze and if the weather is above 75 you will bake. If there are any type of bugs, you're done because there is no mosquito net. Very rain proof design but you'll have no idea what's happening outside because the view points are too limited. Better off with a traditional camping hammock and tarp.

Great Product

By
I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was talking about as there is a great view and good ventilation when you use the included velcro attachments to tie back the side to expose the mosquito net windows.
I bought this due to my poor back and the problems I've had sleeping on the ground This summer I spent over ten nights in this tent, biggest problem is in strong wind if you don't hang your hammock in that direction of the wind it will swing some. I made up some bungee style tie downs that I use if there are no trees the work with the wind direction.

Good Tent!

By
Location: Pecos, New Mexico
I wanted to give it a 5 star rating but when camping it can be
hard to find two trees about 10 feet apart so I gave it a 4 star.
Setting that aside, the Eureka Chrysalis Hammock Tent is
very easy to setup and has good construction. It only takes a couple of minutes unlike most conventional tents where it takes time driving stakes and finding a flat soft ground to sleep on you won't find it in this.
It is incredibly comfortable with or without a sleeping bag,
I preferred a sleeping bag. There is extra room which I
found out to store your gear at your feet and also over your head
to keep them dry.
The Eureka Chrysalis Hammock Tent again is easy to setup,
easy to disassemble, packs away quickly, light and also keeps you from ground unwanted ground critters.
