Hang time courtesy of the Sea to Summit Pro Hammock
There is something simply magical about hammocks. Cocooned by the soft fabric, the gentle swaying of the hammock brings to mind past memories of relaxing in one.
Sea to Summit's new Pro Hammock is extremely compact which makes it perfect to travel with. The hammock stuffs inside the attached stuff bag, and then compresses small.
They are built from 70D ripstop nylon, which combined with high strength steel buckles and double bar tacked webbing, load rates them for 180kg.
The suspension straps come with their own stuff bags. Simply roll them up, and pop them in - they'll stay knot free - ready for your next hang session!
The hammocks are really quick to hang. First up you'll need anchors - two trees, two four wheel drives, or whatever you can find. Next up position the suspension straps around the anchors, then spread out the hammock and connect it to the suspension straps. Finally adjust the straps to get the height and shape that's most comfortable.
Sea to Summit also make double hammocks and ultralight ones weighing a mere 155g! For those looking to hammock camp, you can also check out the Hammock Tarp (shelter), Hammock Bug Net and Gear Sling!
They are available from Wild Earth and other great outdoor stores.
