      I bought one of these at their store in San Diego when I was out there 2
      months ago. I was getting it for my youngest son. When I got home I
      set it up for a test. The cords on opposite side of the zipper side
      were tied a little longer than the zipper side thereby making the
      hammock longer on the back side than the front side. I got in and was
      quickly dumped on my butt. There I am tangled in the hammock and
      netting, semi-suspended, and trying to figure how get up so I could
      climb back out the zipper side. Some of the netting and the zipper
      tore. At least nobody saw me. If the netting was stronger I might
      still be stuck there today.



      Moral of the story: Make sure each of the long sides are the same
      distance from end knot to end knot.
