Short Review (Summary): I haven’t been able to use these in the field yet (We have had MAJOR RAIN everyday).. With that being said, these are STILL VERY AWESOME!! I got to test them inside and play with them which I always do before I take any gear camping!! I would like to draw attention to the size of these, They are larger than MOST, if NOT ALL sleeves on the market which help with a couple things.. If you have a bug net or fly, one or the other MAYBE EVEN BOTH (Depending on the size of your gear) will fit in these sleeves! Basically, they are big enough for more than a hammock!
So, what is a sleeve? Basically its a storage or protection item that helps you setup and protect your hammock! Helping you keep it off the ground, helping you keep everything from getting tangled, and so on.. It will also allow it to be stored as one single item! This keeps your hammock gear together and it is ready to go when you are!!
1.) Quality – I have NEVER had an issue with Chill Gorilla Gear!! You can buy their gear and feel confident that it will last! Just like ENO and all the big brands out there, Chill Gorilla is made just as good if not better!! You only want quality on the trail! WHY? Have you ever had gear fail 20 or 30 miles into the Appalachian Trail or any other long hike? I have, and it is not fun!! Quality counts! It can save your life and protect you. Chill Gorilla is one of the brands that I have no issues tossing in a survival pack or taking on LONG (Sometimes MONTH LONG) hikes!
2.) Easier Setup – If done correctly, you can setup your gear MUCH quicker with these!
3.) Provides Storage Protection
4.) Waterproof – Will keep your hammock dry while you’re out an about, away from the campsite!! Just keep in mind, this is waterproof so DON’T STORE A WET hammock or fly in it!!
5.) Longer Than Hennessey Snakeskins! Hennessey makes a good product, but I have never been a fan of their All-In-One design.. I only owned my Hennessey for about a month or so before trading it off.. I did keep the snakeskins though! BUT These Chill Gorilla will replace them because of two reasons! 1.) Combined they are longer! MUCH LONGER and 2.) They are also large enough to hold more than one hammock such as 2 hammocks, rainfly and hammock, or whatever!!
6.) Excellent Value – Chill Gorilla might not beat everyone’s price BUT THEY DO have the best price for TOP QUALITY gear!! If you find something that is cheaper, you better believe their are probably quality compromises on those items!
7.) Should fit ANY BRAND From ENO, to generics! This is another reason their size is so awesome!
Overall: These are great and I would highly recommend them to anyone who owns a hammock or does a lot of hammock camping! You can buy these and confidently know they will last while you are out and about using them!! You will know they can last a lifetime!! You will know they can protect your gear GREAT!!
