Double Hammock – 4 Things to Consider Before Buying

4 Things to Consider When Buying a Double Hammock

If you are looking for a double hammock, you’ll find a lot of choices out there from established brands to generic offerings and everything in between. This is both good and bad. Bad because with so many choices, determining which one is the best for you can be a daunting task. Good because out of every hammock, there is bound to be one that fits your needs perfectly.

Before you plow through the myriad of double hammocks for sale, here are five things to consider.

How tricked out do you want your double hammock?

While most double hammocks are comfortable by their very nature, there are some that come with an abundance of accessories that can turn your comfy cocoon into a tiny Taj Mahal. How tricked out you want your hammock can depend on the level of comfort you require. But it also depends on how technical you plan on getting with your camping.

With the right hook kit, hammock spring,or treestrapsthat are available in the top-double hammocks, your comfort will increase and so will your options.

Of the many double hammocks for sale, a more tricked out hammock will give the confidence to stay outdoors.

Where do you like to hang?

In finding a double hammock that meets your requirements, where you plan on using it makes a big difference. If you prefer outdoors, simply relaxing at a park or beach, or hanging in the backyard, a basic, open air, our double size zen hammock will do. Also adding a stand will help increase versatility.

But if trekking deep into the woods in varying weather conditions is more your speed, a hammock with more accessories may be a better option. There are many excellent double hammocks that work great in the elements with added accessories. However, if you want to go Spartan and experience nature to its fullest, a regular, open air, our double parachute hammock will work just fine.

Size matters

Double hammocks also include double capacity. A 2 person hammock are popular for obvious reasons. The only negatives compared to a single hammock are the packed size and heavier weight. But a double hammock comes with an added perk – a single occupant in a double makes for more comfort and extra security.

You may want to consider the dimensions of your hammock and its configuration, as well. The idea is to be comfortable, so you don’t want a hammock that cramps you. Most double hammocks accommodate all sizes of a hammock lover. However, with all the various styles and makes of double hammocks, not every hammock is the same. Certain configurations may not be a good match for every person.

Quality, quality, quality

Above else, when it comes to hammocks, quality is the key. And for more than one reason. Quality materials are important not only for comfort, value, and durability but also for safety. Lack of quality only increases the chances of equipment failure. Which makes having a well-built hammock made of quality materials a must, no matter if you are sitting a few feet above or near a campfire surrounded by friends or hanging over jagged rocks alone and miles away from another human being.

When considering your next hammock, there are many double hammocks to choose from. Finding the right one for you may take a little effort. But start with picking one that is high quality. Next, ensure the dimensions and configuration are a good fit for you. Finally, determine how you plan to use it. Lastly, have fun and be safe! And if you are still searching, check out our selection of double hammocks.

Camping Hammock: A Great Substitute To A Tent

Think outside of the “Tent”

Camping Hammocks

Camping Hammock the latest trend

When you think about camping, what image comes to mind? Probably a tent. Tents and camping have truly become linked over the past few decades. If you went camping and it wasn’t in a cabin or an RV, you slept in a tent. Recently that image has started to change, as an alternative way to camp has emerged: No, not your backyard hammock with its woven net and wooden spreader bars that love to flip you over. Somewhat, a camping hammock made especially for sleeping.

Such hammocks have been common in Central and South America for a long time, but are now undergoing numerous advancements in design and materials, and becoming more and more popular with car campers and backpackers the world over.

Why? Because Camping Hammock offers a bunch of definite advantages:

More comfort. Say goodbye to sleeping on rocks, roots, mud, bugs, and sloping, uneven ground. Camping in a hammock allows you to rise above it all. Learning to sleep comfortably in a hammock has a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be getting the best night’s sleep in the outdoors you’ve ever experienced. Some even prefer their hammock to their bed at home. So if you want to hit the trails each morning well-refreshed, and return home feeling rejuvenated instead of exhausted, go with a our nice quality selection of camping hammock.

Adaptability. Camping Hammock offer more freedom of location when it comes to your hammock up between trees and rocks, over a stream, on a hill, next to a waterfall…you can even string it up between two car racks. Plus, a camping hammock does double duty on your trips, not only serving as a bed for sleeping, but as a chair and a lounger. Take a nap, read, and relax in your hammock all throughout the day. And of course it can serve the same purpose when you get home; while a tent sits in your basement between trips, you can use your camping hammock all the time for relaxing in the backyard (or even inside).

Double Parachute Camping Hammock in Green

Easy to set up. Not every camping hammock is easier to set up than a tent (depends on the hammock and tent that you’re using), but they’re definitely easy. Double Parachute Hammock, for example, can be hung in just two minutes. No more struggling with tent poles and stakes or check out our how to hang your hammock guide that we’ve posted months ago.

Value for money. Many camping hammock offer super sturdy construction and materials and are as rugged as many high quality tents on the market. Slate Grey Hammock, for example, is made with their 210T Riptop Nylon fabric, that includes all you need accessories setting up your hammock, which is why we feel confident to recommend it to beginners in camping as well as experts in their field.

A new parent will discover that babies love being rocked to sleep using a baby hammock. Many believe that the reason babies are serene by swaying motions in their baby hammock is because they associate the movements with what was experienced when they were enclosed in their mother’s womb.

Benefits of using a baby hammock

Due to its suspended design, the bed will gently move with each jiggle of your baby. This is a great help for parents as a restless baby can quickly rock itself to sleep without your assistance. The resemblance to the womb do not end there.

Style your interior with a Hammock!

When you think “hammock” it’s common to think outdoor hammocks, sipping drinks and napping in the sunshine. However, hammocks are just as good hung indoors, especially when you don’t have the luxury of an outdoor space! And in our opinion, having a hammock added to your living room, bedroom or “inside space” is sometimes even better than outside.

Interior hammocks are the perfect hybrid between a bed and couch, whether it’s chilling with a good book, procrastinating on a laptop / tablet or sneaking in a quick kip to recharge the batteries. Here are some of our top picks:

A colourful, vibrant hammock such as our Single or Double size Zen Hammock, provides a lovely lounging spot and will brighten up the room.

Colourful hammocks can brighten up the room

Some people even opt for hammocks in lieu of a couch. Bright colours are perfect for a kids’ playroom for them to literally “hang out” in their own space, or even for a living room to just kick back with a magazine or good book. Our vibrant Nicaraguan Hammocks are a great choice!

Enjoy some quiet time indoors

Or if you want a classy white look, a macramé hammock, such as our Double Nicaraguan Hammock, to bring out the elegance in your room.

Another option if you prefer a modern, classy look, go for a simple white hammock such as our Coco Deluxe Hammock

If you’re after something a bit smaller, but equally comfy and stylish, a Canvas Hammock Chair with Tassals might be more your taste.

Tips To Hang Your Hammock

HANGING TECHNIQUES FOR A SINGLE, DOUBLE OR FAMILY-SIZE HAMMOCK

You’ve just bought your hammock. Fantastic! Now it’s time to properly hang it!

First, you’ll want to find your perfect location and decide which of the techniques below best fits your environment. Keep in mind these are just the most simple hanging techniques – not the ONLY ones – and you can always extend your hammock’s reach with longer ropes!

INSIDE YOUR HOME

To hang a hammock indoors, drill two hooks into a ceiling or wall beam. Use a rope or carabiner to link each hook with the eyes of the hammock.

BETWEEN TWO TREES

Wrap a rope securely around each tree trunk and attach the ropes to the eyes of the hammock (using a knot or carabiner).

FROM AN OVERHEAD BEAM ON YOUR PATIO OR DECK

By wrapping two ropes securely around the beams or posts and attaching the ropes to the eyes of the hammock (using a knot or carabiner).

A HYBRID APPROACH

You can also use a combination of structures to hang a hammock- for instance, a porch post and a tree. Secure a rope to the porch by drilling a hook or wrapping it around. Secure the other rope to the tree. Make sure the two sides are hung evenly!

BONUS! HAMMOCK STAND COMPATIBLE

Our hammocks are compatible with most hammock stands on the market- if you are considering a hammock stand, double check our hanging specs (below) with the stand manufacturers’ recommendations.

OPTIMAL DIMENSIONS FOR YOUR CLASSIC DOUBLE HAMMOCK

Now that you’ve picked out how you want to hang your hammock, you’ll want to know where to place your anchor points. The following measurements are the OPTIMAL dimensions to hang each of our hammocks.

(These dimensions are optimal, but if your hammock environment doesn’t match up to these measurements perfectly, you’ll also find our recommended ranges for each measurement below. And, as always, remember you can extend the reach of your hammock by using ropes!)

Classic Double Hammock

Optimal Width (between eyes)……….. 120 in / 10 ft
Optimal Height (of eyes)………………….. 60 in / 5 ft
Optimal Distance from Ground ……….. 24 in / 2 ft

RECOMMENDED RANGE OF DIMENSIONS FOR YOUR CLASSIC DOUBLE HAMMOCK

We understand that not every environment lends itself to the above optimal dimensions. Below you’ll find a range of recommended dimensions that will work for you!

Classic Double Hammock

Range of Width (between eyes).. 96 in / 8 ft – 132 in / 11 ft
Range of Height (of eyes) ………. 48 in / 4 ft – 72 in / 6 ft

 

PLEASE NOTE: The closer you hang the eyes together, the higher your hammock will need to be from the ground. For example, you will not be able to hang a hammock at a width of 8 ft and height of 4 ft. Your measurements will likely fall somewhere within the recommended range.

There you have it! You’re good to get your hammock hung, and before you know it, you’ll be kicking back in your awesome hammock!
