No one has experienced more in an Exped Ergo Hammock Combi than Lukas who just completed the 4286 km long Pacific Coast Trail, that follows the length of the USA from the southern border of Canada down to Mexico. Lukas did it the hard way from North to South. Lukas was a driving force behind the development of the Ergo Hammock. He spent 5 years working on prototypes he tested mainly on hikes here in Switzerland. On his PCT hike he used a custom made ultralight version with smaller tarp, lighter fabrics, shorter zippers etc.
