The Best Lightweight Hammocks for Solo Camping

The Best Lightweight Hammocks for Solo Camping

Traditional hammocks make a great place to relax and watch the world go by, but they’re not necessarily built for all conditions and won’t guarantee a great night’s sleep. For solo adventures, hiking and backpacking, the camping hammock is king.

Tentsile vs. Traditional Hammocks & Tents

Tentsile invented the Tree Tent and we're thrilled that other companies have created their own versions. Any product that gets you enjoying the outdoors is fine by us!

To make sure you get the most enjoyment, here's a few reasons why Tentsile Tree Tents can offer a better experience than many of the alternatives

Tentsile vs. ENO: Product Comparison

ENO are the gold-standard when it comes to traditional hammocks, no-one else comes close. Their range is high-quality, reliable and if you’re looking for a traditional hammock, they’re a great choice.

As traditional hammocks, they are lightweight and so perfect for backpacking, hiking or ultra-lightweight adventures. However, they are only really suitable for a solo camper as even in the 2-person models, you’ll both roll into the middle of the hammock.

While more expensive, Tentsile is a wholly unique product and a much better option for multi-person camping as a long-term shelter. Thanks to the anti-roll straps and taut floor, Tentsile tents and hammocks are better for couples, side/front sleepers and those wanting to camp with their pets.

Tentsile vs. Hennessey Hammock: Product Comparison

Hennessy Hammocks are a great choice for ultralight expeditions, thru hiking, and hardcore lightweight advocates. They're also easy to set up in the garden without trees and so incredibly versatile. Cheaper alternatives are available, but Hennessy have established themselves as providers of high-quality and reliable products over the past 20 years.

While marginally more expensive, Tentsile products offer a wholly unique experience and a much better option for a "flat lay" or multi-person camping. Thanks to the anti-roll straps and taut floor, Tentsile tents and hammocks are better for couples, side/front sleepers and those wanting to camp with their pets.

Tentsile vs. Kammok: Product Comparison

The Flite is a heavier and takes a little longer to set up, but is for 2-people to sleep in absolute comfort. It can be set up in ground mode, but this does require a Ground Conversion Kit.

The Sunda (2.0) is a more lightweight option for a solo camper and can be pitched on the ground or between trees so is very versatile.

So if you're looking for a hammock tent to sleep 2 people and want a comfortable and weather-proof night's sleep, the Flite is likely the best option, but if you're running solo and need the extra versatility, then the Sunda (2.0) ticks all the boxes.
