I have used this hammock for years. Even used it on a portion of a thru-hike of the PCT. Two years ago I was in bad storm off the shore of Lake Superior, and I haven't used it since. The fly was completely inadequate. Water was rolling off and blowing across me as I slept. I laid there, for hours, thunder and lightning and wind, angry, realizing this thing just wasn't strorm worthy. Good for occasional overnights, but not when things get tough. Went back to a ground-based set-up and that's where I intend to stay.
