Discover our wide selection of hammocks and you’ll quickly discover how easy it is to set up your own, personal paradise in your backyard, campsite, or anywhere else.
What better way is there to enjoy the outdoors than relaxing in a hammock? Hammocks are perfect for lounging as you read, sip a frosty drink, catch a quick nap, or cuddle up with loved ones. You can even take one on camping trips in lieu of a sleeping bag or tent. Read on to decide which hammock will best suit your needs.
Most people are familiar with the traditional hammock: one that has a fish-net-like design and hangs between two trees. But nowadays, there are many different types, sizes, and choices of fabric.
Spreader hammocks have wooden or metal bars on either end, perfect for a full body stretch out. Ideal for napping, the soft and comfy design of inline hammocks cocoons both sides of your body. Travel or camping hammocks boast a lightweight design, making them easy to pack and carry. Hammock chairs are can be suspended from a deck or ceiling and, like inline hammocks, surround you on both sides.
Single hammocks are designed for solo hanging, while double hammocks let you snuggle up with a loved one. Jumbo hammocks are designed to accommodate multiple people, making them ideal for families
Hammocks come in rope or fabric varieties, and choosing between them will depend on the type of environment you plan to put the hammock.
Rope hammocks are most commonly made with cotton and polyester. Cotton hammocks join together three layers designed to conform to every body type, but aren't water-resistant. Polyester hammocks are firmer and can better withstand the outdoor elements, but are also less stretchy and pliable than cotton hammocks.
Fabric hammock types include quilted, Brazilian, parachute nylon, and Sunbrella. Quilted hammocks consist of two layers of fabric sandwiching comfort batting, which keeps the material soft and strong. Brazilian hammocks are constructed with a thick, tight weave that minimizes airflow, so they're better suited to colder weather. Parachute nylon hammocks are one of the strongest of its kind and feature a moderate stretch that offers the ultimate in comfort. Sunbrella fabric is made from 100% solution dyed acrylic fibres and has the look and feel of cotton, but lasts longer.
Hammocks can be hung in two common ways: straps between two fixed points, or supported by a stand. Straps are designed to wrap around or hook to the ends of the hammock, and can be used on trees, posts, and walls. Stands are made of metal, steel, or wood, and can be used pretty much anywhere because of their freestanding design.
While using a hammock is fun and relaxing, safety should always be a priority. Always follow the instructions included with your hammock, and ensure the hanging points of the hammock are within the recommended distance. If the hammock is stretched too far it could cause tipping, but if it's not stretched far enough, it could cause sagging. Install the hammock in a secure location, make sure it's properly fastened, supervise any children using it, and ensure you don't exceed the maximum weight capacity.
