Aspects to Consider When Choosing a Hammock
- Size: The choice here is single or double. The difference is only space. Many people choose a double for comfort and beauty, not only because they plan to hang with someone.
- End use: Here the vital factor to consider if you go backpacking, is weight; for camping trips, durability is the most critical aspect.
- Accessories: There are several items to choose depending on the necessities such as place and weather. You might need straps to set it up; an under-quilt for cold temperatures, a tarp for rainy days, or a net for bugs.
Tips for Choosing Between Single and Double Hammocks
- Single hammocks: Usually all singles have a width in the 4- to 5-foot range. Getting a single-wide saves weight but offers a less spacious lounging or sleeping experience. Singles weight limits range from 300 to 400 pounds, with ultralight capacities closer to 250 pounds.
- Double hammocks: These models have a width in the 5- to 6-foot range. It offers more space for lounging or sleeping. Also a double gives you the option of sharing the hammock with someone else. Doubles have capacities from 400 to 500 pounds, with ultralight models closer to 350 pounds.
Most hammocks include suspension systems, under-quilt, rain tarp, and bug net.
