1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for hammocks

1.1 Size

The main consideration while buying a hammock is the size and hammocks are either a single person or double person.

A single person hammock normally has a width of 120 cm to 150 cm, but they are comparatively less spacious than that of a double-sized hammock. The maximum weight bearing capacity of single-sized hammocks ranges between 136 kg - 181 kg.

While a double person hammock features a width of 150 cm to 180 cm, making the lounging and sleeping experience much more spacious and comfortable. The double sized hammock has a capacity between 181 kg - 226 kg approximately.

1.2 Length

While the width of the hammock remains uniform across most of the models, the length of the hammock is something that may vary. However, the thumb rule for identifying an ideal hammock is to ensure that the hammock is at least two feet longer than the height of the user.

1.4 Suspension System

Hammocks include carabiners that have a sufficient strength rating. Three straps that make a suspension system for the hammock is often purchased separately. Ensure the strap you purchase is at least 4.75 inches wide, because thin straps may damage the bark of the trees.

1.5 UnderQuilt Insulation

The underquilt insulation is important when you use the hammocks in icy weather. In the absence of this, you will feel cold. Despite having a sleeping pad beneath you, a separate under quilt would be a much better option to restore the warmth.

1.6 Rain Tarp

Rain trap hangs above the hammock and utilizes guylines to maintain the taut pitch. The bigger the trap, the more protection it offers against the rains. It is also helpful when the wind blows sideways.

If you are looking for a hammock that provides you with overall protection then the bug net is an important accessory that you should always buy with a hammock. Be sure that the bug net has “no-see-um” netting to prevent the big size pests from entering the net.
