5 Reasons To Use A Hammock In Summer

Hammock will never let you down this Summer!

The first thing that you’ll noticed is that hammock camping is MUCH less gear intensive. Forget the monster tent, the pads, and that beloved air mattress and pump. A hammock and a tarp are all you need this summer. Score #1 for simplicity.

Here are five great reasons to invest in your own (or find one to lay in) this summer:

They’ll turn you into a daredevil

One of the greatest benefits of a hammock over a tent is shelter from rain, especially heavy rain. I can remember camping in the Catskills with some friends when it rained for days. They struggled with keeping their tents and gear dry each night, while I hung outwith it nice and dry above the muck and puddles.

They’re perfectly portable

You can take it pretty much anywhere you want, whether you get around via subway, car, or your own two feet. They’re great to bring along to the park or any place with at least two trees or posts to hang from.  Sounds like the perfect way to spend a summer! 

They’re instantly relaxing

The world seems to silence and slow down when you’re in a hammock and It is very Zen-ful, and that’s coming from a not-very-Zen person. It helps when you’ve got a breathtaking view, no cell service, and are surrounded by nature, but wherever you are, you’ll definitely experience calming benefits.

They’ll help you make friends

People love hammocks. Whoever you’re with will love you for bringing a hammock. So if you’re going on a camping trip with a crow, for example, you might want to go ahead and bring two because you’re going to have to share.

There are plenty of things you can do in them (other than just hang around)

Rather than reading in bed or on the couch, go get some fresh air out in the hammock. Take your phone calls with mom  and naps are a completely different story.
