YES THEY ARE SOOOOO COMFY! I woke up in the morning the other day in Angel Basin, and thought I was at home on my $2000 Pillow Top mattress....I was fairly disappointed when I realized I was in Angel Basin in the rain...

Would this be an issue? Then again, I toss and turn because the ground gets too hard, which apparently won't be much of an issue when I'm in midair, slung between two trees.
