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 Hammocks

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.

The Perfect Accessory

If you’re not convinced about replacing the tent with a hammock, then that’s ok! The best part about a travel hammock is that it’s an incredible addition to your camping kit even if you don’t sleep in it. Our camping hammocks are easy to unpack and set up just to chill out for a few hours, whether it’s reading a book, taking a nap after a hike or just hanging around. Then when you’re ready to go, they’re easy to pack up in the storage bag that is included!

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.

Interior Hammock – Style It The Way You Want it!

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 Hammock, provides a lovely lounging spot and will brighten up the room.

Interior Hammock – Indoor

Colourful hammocks can brighten up the room

Interior Hammock – Alternative as a couch

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

Substitute as a bed

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 Double Queen Resort Hammock

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

Tips To Hang Your Hammock – 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!

Tips To Hang Your Hammock -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!)

tips to hang your hammock

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!

Camping Experience In Hammocks

Tents are the universal symbol of camping. But what if there was a way to make the camping experience more comfortable, more enjoyable and even easier to setup and take down?

Camping Hammocks. Yes, that’s right. Ditch the tent, and go a hammock instead. But why?

Camping hammocks – You’ll Sleep Better

There are quite a lot of reasons suggesting that hammocks provide a much better sleep than a tent. We have covered a lot of the benefits of sleeping and napping in a hammock. But really, can you think of anything better than a great night’s camping out in nature? You’ll fall asleep with a smile on your face and you’ll wake up happy, refreshed, and comfortable.

Floating versus Sleeping on the Ground

How many times have you woken up in a tent in the middle of the night because of a badly placed rock or tree root that you didn’t realise was there when you set your tent up? Or even worse, you forgot your tent mattress?

With a camping hammock, it doesn’t matter what the ground looks like underneath you. You can camp on a hill, over rocks, or tree-stumps. You camp over wet terrain if you really wanted to. Either way, your comfort is first class, irrespective of what lies beneath you! Our camping hammocks come with aluminium carabiners and hanging straps, and are easy to set up wherever you want!

The Perfect Accessory

If you’re not convinced about replacing the tent with a camping hammocks, then that’s ok! The best part about a travel hammock is that it’s an incredible addition to your camping kit even if you don’t sleep in it. Our camping hammocks are easy to unpack and set up just to chill out for a few hours, whether it’s reading a book, taking a nap after a hike or just hanging around. Then when you’re ready to go, they’re easy to pack up in the storage bag that is included!

SCIENCE SAYS YOU NEED A HAMMOCK!

Science says you need a hammock!

Science says you need a hammock! It’s official: there’s a reason that swaying gently in a hammock is so relaxing. Science says that rocking as you fall asleep affects your brain waves, allowing you to gently drift off to sleep, faster!

The results help explain why everyone, from babies to adults, find rocking back and forth so soothing. We know that catching a quick afternoon nap is helpful to refresh the brain. But doing so in a hammock is probably now the best option!

Science says you need a hammock – The power of naps

Napping can help:

  • Alleviate sleep deficits;
  • Boost your problem solving, verbal memory, and learning;
  • Improve reaction times and logical reasoning;
  • Improve mood and feelings of sleepiness and fatigue;
  • Regulate blood pressure, stress levels, and surprisingly, even weight management.

The studies

To find out if rocking really does improve sleep and how it might do so, researchers from the University of Geneva recruited 12 male volunteers, who attended the university’s sleep lab for a 45-minute nap on a custom-built bed suspended from the ceiling. The researchers proceeded to test two different sleep conditions on two separate afternoons: one where the bed was stationary, and the other nap whereby it swayed gently. As they slept, the men’s brain activity was monitored.

Interestingly, all of the men fell asleep faster and slept more deeply when the bed was rocking. When the bed was still, sleepers spent about half of their nap in the initial phase of light sleep, and when the bed was rocking, the initial phase only took up about 30 percent of the nap. The deeper phase of sleep increased by about 10% when the bed was swaying, increasing from about 50 percent of the nap to more than 60 percent.

The researchers aren’t yet sure whether rocking out in a comfy hammock is more restful over the course of an entire night of sleep, but they hope future research could aid in treatment for insomnia. In the meantime, you now have permission to laze away summer afternoons on the hammock. Science said so.

The team at Siesta Hammocks are experts at napping: some of our favourites selections include:
