Pros: This hammock sock is super easy to install and gives year-round protection to my hammock. Using the sock eliminates the need to take down the hammock and put it back up. The hammock stays dry and clean. All that is needed to use the hammock is to open one end of the sock and slide it to the other end of the hammock. When you're done, just slide it back and close the end! Cons: The fabric does not hold up to South Florida rain, heat, and sun and the sock is lasting me 6 months before it needs replacement. The elements dry out the fabric and that causes it to crack and tear. I would love an all-weather fabric. That being said, I LOVE this product and find that it is well worth replacing bi-annually. My hammock is clean and ready for us at any time.
