I was at my local Wally tonight and they have the O2 Cool Squeeze Breeze misting fans on sale for $4.50. Online link below but you have to find them in stores - they were with the other fans in the "heating/cooling" section of my Walmart.
Has anyone used one of these hammocks, specifically this brand? It has good reviews, and compared to waking up in a puddle of sweat I think it might be a good investment? amzn.to/LJlhIA
Quoting an oldie for the pic and relevance. Bought this for 2013 Roo and some camping later in the summer. Thought it was great when it came, and I took a nice nap in it. The first night of Roo it started to rip across the center seam, and got worse the next few nights. Still usable, but probably won't be after another 5 or so nights. And holy shiz that thing is uncomfortable. The stiff nature of it doesn't cradle you at all. I was shocked that it made my knees hurt, since I couldn't lie even halfway on my side, and when on my back it actually made me knees hurt because of the stiffness and poor shape. Bigger, more traditional hammocks are great, but if you want something that will fit in a tent (just fits diagonally in a 9x7 Coleman - would not fit the shape of a 9x7 Walmart tent), get a dang cot and be done with it.
So it is cheap, portable and reasonably easy set up, but it rips easily at the seams (200 lbs shouldn't be too much), and it requires 11+ feet for the stand to open.
Amazon will have an EZ-up 10X10 Pyramid as one of their Black Friday Lightning deals today at 6pm Central time. It's currently listed around $200, not sure what the Lightning Deal price will be but if you're in the market for one, this might be a good time to buy.
That one on Amazon was the true 10x10 with the straight legs though. The ones from Academy have slanted legs making them 8x8 at the top. I didn't see what the deal price on Amazon was though. I've been having terrible luck catching those lightning deals. They seem to sell out before they are even available to add to my cart.
True, but it's still pretty good, even at 8'x8' up top. I have that 1 with the slanted legs, used a 12'x12' slanted leg that completely broke this summer, and a 10'x10' First Up canopy I've been pleased with. All 3 have been used at Bonnaroo.
