Camping Hammocks Research and Review

I like sleeping outside. If you are going to be able to find trees to strap a hammock between or staying at a camp with these conditions, a hammock is a good option.

Hammock Benefits

  • Avoid the cold floor
  • Avoid bugs

Hammock drawbacks

  • Strange sleeping position
  • Massive range to choose from
  • Best brands are expensive

My Interest

I'm interested in one with a built in net to avoid bugs and long and wide enough to fit a 6'2" tall person who weighs 200 lbs.


Most expensive versions on the Market include the:

Mid Range Options

Budget Options

You can get similar looking models off Amazon for a fraction of the price but you would hope that for the price you pay for the expensive options they are handcrafted to perfection.
