    I would think twice about buying a hammock if you can't contact them, good luck with warranty issues. Plenty of hammock brands with working sites, emails, and phone numbers.

    Never trust a brand that says a hammock is for 2 people unless it's a Clark or tentisle. No single body hammock is for 2 people, they lie about that they lie about anything.
