Hammock recommendations
« on: December 11, 2013, 12:19:10 PM »
I've heard several people say they loved having a hammock with them, especially in hot climates. I've never slept in a hammock before, but I'm thinking about getting one to take with me. Does anyone have any recommendations or advice about hammocks?

I have an army green one of these babies and I love it! Eno definitely makes some of the best quality hammocks. Their single nest and double nest hammocks are a bit pricier, and this one is just as good quality and works just as well, and can actually fit two people (cuddling). You've got to get slapstraps as well, but those are definitely good, strong mounts for it. I absolutely love mine!

You can most likely buy one in country. One less thing to carry with you. Have you received your nomination yet?

Check out Grand Trunk hammocks, affordable and great quality! You have to make your own tree straps though or considering a DIY Hammock not very difficult to make.
