Hammocks vs. Tentsile

Tentsile Hammocks vs. Traditional Hammocks

Traditional hammocks are extremely versatile, they can be set up almost anywhere and offer levels of comfort that can be hard to match by a conventional tent. However, the moment you climb into a hammock you realise there is very little room, your back is curved and there is no elbow space. It is also very difficult to share a hammock, making it a fairly solitary experience.

Tentsile’s award winning range of Tree Tents and Giant Hammocks are suspended between 3 anchor points, giving them a third dimension and allowing freedom of movement inside a structure which has a huge tensioned fabric floor. Using simple ratchets to create an incredibly comfortable surface on which to chill and sleep on your back, front or sideways!

Our tents and hammocks are reinforced with seat-belt webbing providing a structurally supportive floor that does not sag like a traditional hammock. All the straps are fully adjustable to compensate for weight differentials of the occupants and create distinct, individual sleeping bays, preventing everyone inside from rolling into the middle.

Rated to hold 880lbs / 400kg, our bigger units can cope with more than enough weight of most groups and their gear, for every conceivable type of adventure.

Tentsile Tree Tents vs. Standard Hammock Tents

What’s the difference between a Tentsile and a standard camping hammock?

We've already outlined why Tentsiles are more comfortable than traditional hammocks and the same reasons apply to camping hammock tents.

Most camping hammocks come with an insect mesh and rainfly but in the end, you’ll be alone, your back will ache from being curved, you’ll be restricted to one seeping position and you’ll have little elbow room to move around or read.

Tentsile Tree Tents will give you all the things you just can’t get in a hammock tent; space to move, space for gear, space for friends to share the experience with and all that glorious ground area under the tent and massive rain fly.

Aside from the UNA 1-Person Tree Tent (designed for solo adventurers), all our tents and hammocks can accommodate 2 or more adults, allowing you and your loved ones to enjoy the Great Outdoors in an amazing new way, suspended like a cloud in pure comfort, floating above the forest floor.
