So what kind of hammock is for me?
In the shop we’ve got Hammocks for everything from back yard relaxing to a serious tent alternatives. So here’s a little run through of our recommendations or you can check out the whole collection here.
If you’re just looking for a hammock to sling in the garden or park for sunny lounging we recommend the Ticket to the Moon range, made from bright coloured parachute silk, they’re super soft and big enough to get 2 or 3 people in. To add an extra dimension the company also give a portion of their profits to education and water projects in Indonesia where they are made. Ethical and comfy. Nice.
For the serious lightweight adventurer Grand Trunk’s One Made is hard to beat, a double size hammock that packs down to size of Nalgene water bottle. And tough enough to take whatever the path has in store. Even tinier - but a little less robust - is the DD lightweight range. Kitty just went camping in this in Ibiza. 'Nuff said.
Serious Hammock Camping
For the comfiest, cosiiest nights sleep in a wood in Devon or on the Apalachian trail, DD’s flagship Frontline hammock (also available as a complete camping bundle has a built in mosquito net and a two layer construction that allows you to slip a roll matt underneath you on those cold, cold nights. You can also add underblankets, quilts and I like bringing a pillow too.
Can I come see???
If you’ve got any questions or want a hand learning the ropes do come and see us, on Thursday & Friday we have our hammock stand up so it’s a great time to come and try one of the range out.
