What is in the name
They use the word ‘folding’ in the name of this hammock, in fact, it is completely collapsible. So the frame collapses like an umbrella, as you can see in the picture below.
They describe it as ‘portable’, though the package is 33 lb (15 kg) and you would not want to carry it long distances.
This is also in the name, and this is such a nice detail that it deserves a few words. So you have telescopic poles for the canopy. They ‘store’ in the frame, so all you have to do is to pull them out, and attach the canopy on the four ends. This is such an ingenious design, see the pictures:
So you put the canopy when you need it, and you remove it easily if you use the hammock as a bed in a tent.
Who is it for
The Mac Sports Hammock is a versatile tool, for home use in the garden, on the veranda, at a pool. But for people who like such beds, this is also an option to use in a tent.
In view of its weight and the packed size, you will need a car for transportation. So this is a tool for regular camping places.
The bed deck looks flat, but this is still the tool for back sleepers. If you are not one of them, better look for a camping cot; many of them are described here in the site, just look in the Categories above.
It comes with a nice carry bag, see the picture, so you will store it at home and keep clean from dust. It packs easily, and you have dual carry straps.
Using the Mac Sports Hammock in a tent
The dimensions (L x W x H) are 92.5 x 26.3 x 39.76 in (235 x 67 x 101 cm), so this is a long and tall structure and not just any tent can accommodate it. Great options are the Browning Camping Glacier Tent and Coleman Instant 4 tent.
But any larger family camping tent will be good for such a folding hammock. But since it is so tall, it is best to look for cabin style tents because of their straightened and tall walls.
The hammock has 4 feet and they are with very nicely designed caps, see the picture below. So this is a really floor-friendly design and you should not have any issues with the tent floor.
As you see from the picture, the mesh shelf is a nice bonus here to keep your things close and to stay organized.
The pillow shown in the picture is one of the bonuses included in the package.

My rating, pros & cons, price
The width is not so great, and if you feel the same, perhaps you should check this Kamp Rite Kwik Set Hammock.
The Amazon-US link below shows its daily updated price, so this is a fair amount for what you have here.
The rating by Amazon users for this folding hammock is very high, but see how I rate it:

So I am quite impressed with the design of this Mac Sports Portable Folding Hammock With Removable Canopy, with everything except its width. Pity they did not make it wider. But if this is not so important for you, this is a great option, I wouldn’t think twice. The canopy design with those extendable poles is the standout feature here.

I think it is best that you contact the manufacturer here.
Will not lock into place when the mat is attached
Hi Barry, sorry to hear about problems, not sure what you mean by the mat. As far as I know there is nothing to lock into place. The frame spreads by its weight. Then you attach the bed deck on the four ends. I can search for some videos for you if you wish.
