  • Amazingly fast setup, Just 1, 2 3…. 1) Find two trees, loop your 9 foot tree friendly straps around two trees 2) Attach your strong lightweight aluminum wire gate carabiners to one of the 15 loops on the straps. 3) Climb in and relax. Takedown is that simple, too. No searching for the stuff sack! It has served as a portable backwoods “nightstand” holding your flashlight, glasses or other essentials.
  • ROOM ENOUGH FOR TWO: At 10 feet long and 6 feet wide, you will not run out of room in our hammock. Both the Thunderhead and Rocky Top are double width and the longest on the market for your comfort.
  • ULTRA SOFT & DURABLE RIPSTOP NYLON – Both POG Lightweight RipStop Camping Hammocks are constructed with Diamond RipStop nylon that is strong (Rated at 400 lbs but tested to over 1000 lbs), durable, and dries quickly and its breathable property keeps you cool on warmer days and nights.

How to Set-up Hammock

We often get asked how to set up our camping hammocks. We love this question, because creativity is the only limit on how and where you can set up your camping hammock. That said, the basic steps remain almost the same no matter where you sue your Camping Hammock:
  • Find two sturdy objects, 12 to 15 feet apart. Trees, posts, poles, racks or rails.
  • Wrap your POG Tree Strap around the objects, pulling the running end of the strap through the loop on one end.
  • Snug the strap around the tree, pole, post or other object you have chosen. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the other side.
  • Attach the one carabiner to the hammock and to one of the loops in the straps.
  • Attach the other carabiner to the other end of the hammock and then attach it to one of the loops in the strap, making sure you get your desired “sway*” in the hammock.
  • Keep your safety in mind, hang your hammock no more than 18 inches off the ground.
  • Climb in, relax and enjoy your hammock!

Tips for Using a Camping Hammock

These tips will help you get the most out of your camping hammock, whether out for a night in the woods or relaxing in your backyard.

  • Sometimes nature calls in the middle of the night. Attaching a glow stick to you hammock will make it easy to find your way back after a break. None likes a flashlight shining all over the campsite, so make it easy on everyone with this little trick.
  • It may go without saying, but here goes: Hang your hammock in a safe spot. Avoid areas near cliffs, over rocks, over cacti, badger dens and above all lava vents.
  • Remove your boots or shoes before climbing in. Boots especially will cause premature wear on your hammock and when dirt gets into nylon, it can cause it to wear prematurely as the tiny dirt particles make microscopic cuts in the fibers.
    Remove sharp objects from your pockets, this will protect your hammock and your femoral arteries. Multi-tools or knives that open can damage the hammock… and you.
  • Rough tree bark tends to hide more insects than smooth bark found on younger trees. Use smooth barked trees for suspending your hammock and reduce the chance of creepy crawlers visiting in the night.
  • Not all hazards are under your hammock. When setting up, look up. Look for dead, loose branches that may fall and interrupt your sleep.

Buyers Guide to The Best Hammock Tents

Which is Better? Hammock vs Tents

Camping Hammocks are also known as backpacking hammocks, tent hammocks, overnight hammocks and hanging tents. We will examine these style hammocks in detail in this guide. Though you can relax and enjoy a quiet afternoon in the backyard in one of these hammocks, they are specifically built for camping.

I am sure you can think of a number of situations where you would rather be off the ground sleeping rather than on it. This is a major advantage of a camping hammock. They also offer the ability to set up anywhere there are trees or posts suitably spaced. You can camp on rough and uneven ground that would make tent camping miserable. The camping hammock allows you to adjust the way you sleep much easier than lying on flat ground. Most people swear by hammocks for this reason alone. I know personally I have never woken to a stiff back after sleeping in a hammock.

Hammocks offer a great degree of flexibility in how you set up camp. You can bring a number of accessories and mimic the best a 3 season tent can offer, or go ultralight with the hammock alone. Adding a rainfly, sleeping pad and insect net will keep the rain, cold and bugs away. Nice thing is, at any point in your day, you are only minutes from relaxing in your hammock. A tent is not a casual quick set up tiem like your hammock. Another advantage of the hammock is the ability to use it as a two seat “sofa’ by sitting across it rather than lying in it. Imagine relaxing looking at your favorite vista while your mates struggle to set up their tent in a small rough campground. In summary, here are some advantages of a hammock:

  1. No stiff back from sleeping on rocks, stumps, etc.
  2. See the stars rather than the tent roof (you can still pitch a rainfly if needed)
  3. Travel light and fast. No poles, ground tarp, etc.
  4. Set up in minutes almost anywhere. No clearing pinecones, rocks, etc.
  5. Low impact and planet friendly – no flattened grass and flattened undergrowth, no dug up rocks and stumps.

Hammocks offer a great alternative to tents in hot weather. In Summer, tents become ovens, trapping stifling heat and holding in stale humidity. A hammock offers the opportunity to be in the open air where every cool breeze is enjoyed. It si great in warm weather to travel light and fast – this is easy with a hammock, not so much with a bulky tent, ground cloth, poles and rainfly. Even the most expensive, ultra lightweight tents do not offer the lightness and ease of a lightweight camping hammock. Fresh air and stars or stale air and nylon, which would you prefer?
