I was lucky enough to get into the Pares Hammock by Sierra Madre Research (SMR) Gear for review. This is a great product and one of the best things about it is the cause that it supports.
SMr is fighting the water crisis, (one) product at a time. When you purchase (one) product from Sierra Madre Research you are supplying (one) person with clean water for (one) year! They build water wells in Central America with a portion of the profit from each piece of gear.
This product has a bunch of new features that I have not seen on a hammock yet. It really keeps the hammocker in mind and it seems that they were made by users.
There are handles on each end of the hammock making it incredibly simple to adjust your position in the hammock in the middle of the night without putting your self at risk of falling out. I LOVE this feature.
There is also a spot on the sides of the hammock for attaching a carabiner so you can have additional storage space if you need it. The stuff sack is great for storage as well.
I recommend this hammock for sure and know that you would not be disappointed .
