I sent this blanket to my Uncle who has just begun chemo. I wanted him to have something to keep him warm and brighten his day. He really loves it and it makes me happy knowing that we can be there with him until we are able to visit. (We live a couple states away).
Love the weight, the bright colors. Now a staple in our living room. Shipped fast & enjoyed fantastic customer service. Big fan!
" Most people just stare blankly as I describe how this blanket's midweight design for durability and warmth, combine with it's shapeshifting bird pattern with vivid colors and fringed ends, which has been, by the way,woven on a traditional handloom, bitches! Having this blanket of magical craftsmanshi, this sacred textile has upped my snuggle game. "

It seems my blanket got lost in USPS somewhere - Heather personally called me to assure me another is on its way! Can’t wait for my daughter to get her gift!
Love that the Trek Light Gear team reached out directly and are so responsive!!!
Haven't had the chance to take it out for a spin yet. Death Valley or Mount Lemon may do the honors soon. Meanwhile, I enjoy it on my couch watching the popular yellow people show :) very cozy, heavy and quality you can feel.
I can't get enough of this blanket! It serves as a great companion on all my trips. It has a great large size and the pattern is beautiful. It was also perfect for a quick outdoor nap with friends while running Ragnar DC this year. Thank you again for a wonderful product!
I bought this hammock for hanging with my family in our back yard. From the minute I found the site til the first time we hung it and got in, it was a pleasure. The color, material, ease of use and interaction with the company is all great. Super easy to use. Quick to put up and take down.
Bought this sticker for hubby, he is an avid hammocker and he is collecting stickers on his car so it was a perfect gift. We love our trek light hammocks. We entered the tattoo contest. And proudly show our support. It c ame quickly. Thanks.
Took these little gems on a camping trip recently up to the Redwoods National Forrest in Northern CA and boy did they bring just the right energy for a fun little adventure! They were smaller than I expected, but they fit perfectly across the opening to our tent so we made that they're home. Love the touch of color and sense of adventure that they brought to our little temporary home. :)
Just took this gorgeous blanket camping up in the Redwoods (CA) and not only did it make for a beautiful accent to our campsite but it sure came in handy both riverside (thick enough to protect us from the rocks) and in the tent to keep us warm at night! Great quality, sturdy material, and beautiful design!
Sorry . . but I prefer my cotton ones. Trek Light Gear is indeed light, and great for camping trips . . but at home, I find the woven cotton far more comfortable and easier to use. I have used all types of hammocks for years. While I like the lightness of this, and the fact that it dries quickly after getting wet, I don't find it as comfortable to use as the woven cotton of the same style. With the latter, I can sit on the side of it, almost like a hammock chair, and it is extremely easy to get out of. With the nylon, the sides are higher, preventing sitting on the side of it . . and I find the nylon to be hotter than the open weave cotton. so not ideal for daytime naps.
I don't remember how may years ago that I purchased this, but I think it was the first year that it was introduced as a new product they designed to use the leftover material from the manufacture of the hammocks. I've used it extensively for travel, as a camera bag, gym bag, grocery bag, day hike bag. The only change over these years that I can see is a very slight fraying and fading of the Trek Light label! Otherwise not a stitch has pulled or any signs of wear. I carry this with me at all times in my bigger backpack since it is so light and versatile. I've gotten my money's worth years ago and I expect to have this for years to come. I highly recommend it!
I manage an animal hospital and the days can get crazy, exhausting and emotional. It can go from Zero to Fractious Feral Cat in a hot second. No matter how rewarding it is, sometimes we just need some decompression time. At some point, as a hospital team, we decided to get a hammock to have on the back porch of our clinic (our clinic is a tiny converted house in Campbell) to have for breaks, lunches and some chill times. It has been amazing for the morale of the hospital having this hammock to set up on our back patio! And I myself recently borrowed it from the clinic to take with my husband, friends and I to a cabin in the mountains, and it was so peaceful! I love this hammock! The shipping was also fast, and it's so easy to set up and take down! AND the donating of trees is a great perk and helps you feel even better about your purchase!
Double hammock just delivered here in South Australia as ordered on line. Great service, things exactly described. Friendly vibe from TLG all the way. Thrilled with hammock. Thanks guys. Michael

I’ve already used it a few times star gazing or just relaxing in the back yard. I strongly recommend the hammock calculator since it took out the guess work of how high to hang it. I could easily doze off in it and the kids love being able to hop in as well.
I am an avid camper and know quite a bit about the great outdoors and know first thing about the glorious smells attributed to it!! I own THOUSANDS of candles and when I read the description of this candle, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to have it! Could it really be possible? Capturing that illusive outdoor smell of trees, fresh air AND a campfire that stole my heart so many years ago as a child that has me forever wanting to escape this concrete jungle and wander back into the folds of Mother Nature? As I waited in anticipation, the candle came in a very tamely manner in a nicely packaged box with a nice handwritten note whichI thought was a brilliant touch. As I raced home from the mailbox, I could hardily contain my childlike anticipation as I quickly grabbed my lighter and sat back waiting, no...hoping for the magic to happen. Much to my disappointment, the room started to fill with the ever too familiar scent of so many candles before it. The smell wafting from my candle was that of pine, strong, overpowering smell of that which could've been found in Glade Evergreen candle at my local supermarket for a lot cheaper! No undertones of campfire, only pine, and not even fresh pine, a pine scent that one gets from opening a bottle of Pine Sol. The company gets a 5 star for delivery speed, packaging and the personal touch from the handwritten note, but a 2 star on the lack of true outdoor, camping smell of my child/adulthood. Will still order from this company in hopes of capturing that "true" outdoor camping candle that continues to elude me!
Of the three blankets we bought this is my favorite color, I would have liked to keep it but I liked it so much I gave it away as a gift! We will order another soon
Bought 2 sets. They are colorful and well-made. The Get Outdoors set is a gift for my daughter who will be working/camping in the Adirondacks this summer. We are going to use the Bluegrass flags when we camp at MerleFest.
This sticker is adorable!
(I love this song so when I saw the sticker I had to buy it!)
Love these blankets! We already own 2. They are robust, comfortable, beautiful, and make our place even more homey. Will be buying more!
