Hammocks are known and loved the world over, thanks to their comfort, portability, and the flexibility to let you sleep outside. But what about their versatility? Are hammocks only good for slinging up outside, between two trees? No way, they're capable of so much more.
Adaptability is certainly one of the key traits that make hammocks desirable. It's also one of the main reasons why so many outdoor enthusiasts try to keep a hammock in their backpack at all times. With a little creativity, you'll realize that these sleeping slings are way more versatile than they may first appear. So, here are just 3 of the many great ways you can set up a hammock.
Sleeping is high on the list of reasons to purchase and pack a hammock in your weekender backpack. So what’s the ultimate sleep setup for that perfect night of outdoor shuteye? Here are some essential tips to follow.
As you’ve probably noticed, some of these tips are more or less applicable depending on the terrain of the campground you are at. See, we've just started and you've already learned that there's a lot more to hammocks than just setting them up wherever you can. Small things can and will affect the comfort and quality of sleep you get in a hammock.
Have you ever seen a Tentsile stack? It’s basically an outdoor vertical fort that looks just as exciting to a grown adult as it does to a 5-year-old. These stacks usually include multiple giant hammocks that can accommodate the sleepy legs of multiple hikers at a time.
Setting up these bigger hammocks requires 3 trees of both adequate sizes and distances apart. To ensure a level hammock, make sure the tree-wraps (which should always be used to protect our tree friends) are level with each other. This might mean putting some tree-wraps higher or lower depending on the differing levels of each tree.
Multi-person hammocks are great for setting up over water, near overlooks, or even at camp for multi-person lounging and activities.
You can set up a hammock in your own backyard using our Backyard Tree Tent and Hammock Stand. This is a great option for families keen on backyard naps and even backyard camping during parties and gatherings. The fittings are made from stainless steel and anti-corrosion aircraft aluminum, but depending on your tent or hammock, it’s advisable for more permanent setups to go under patio covers or canopies.
