Nothing conjures imagery of a holiday more than relaxing in a gently swaying hammock on a palm fringed beach. Hammocks are popular with people of all ages, making them an attractive and versatile piece of camping/travelling equipment. Hammocks have been used for hundreds of years, originating in Central and South America, and their increasing popularity is testament to their versatility.
A hammock is much more than a swing. A hammock combined with an appropriate overhead tarp is a favourite wilderness survivalist set-up offering protection from spiders, snakes and other ground-dwelling creepy crawlies. Casual hammock users appreciate convenient options, such as stand-alone hammocks with support frame and colourful, showy single and double hammocks for having fun in the sun.
How to hang a hammock?
The hammock you purchase should be long enough to stretch out on without too much sagging. You will need to hang your hammock correctly for best results, either outdoors or indoors, and there are lots of ways to ensure your hammock is set up safely and securely. You will require a hanging location with adequate distance between supports and height above ground level. The space you need will be determined by the size of your chosen hammock.
When hanging your hammock you will need to make allowance for sag. Establish a hanging location with a little extra length so you can adjust the tension using hanging straps, hooks or springs, all available at Anaconda. If you have found a hammock hanging location with sufficient height and distance, you are good to go. Alternatively, you may prefer the freestanding Hammock approach, and we have the solutions. At Anaconda, you can purchase a hammock with dedicated stand for fast set up and disassembly anyplace. Here are a few popular hammock hanging methods.
Straps. Attaching your hammock to trees or posts using straps is easy. Simply link the strap to the hammock end-loop and wrap the strap around the tree. Straps can be adjusted for tension, allowing you to get as comfortable as you wish. Check out our range of heavy duty straps and ties for your project.
Hanging hardware. If you want permanent hammock solutions, hanging hardware is the answer. The Tropicana Hammock Hook Kit and Tropicana Hammock Spring, available at Anaconda, are the sure way to keep your hammock up in the air where it belongs without your backside scraping on the ground.
Rope. Every camper and household should have strong rope available for odd jobs that arise. Hanging a hammock with strong rope is the simple, effective low-tech solution. Lightweight but strong rope is a must-have camping accessory that will make life in the outdoors far more comfortable.
Hammock stand. This is the easy solution for hanging a hammock inside or outdoors. Hammocks can be purchased with a stand, or the stand can be purchased separately for adapting your present hammock using s-hooks and connectors.
Is sleeping in a hammock comfortable?
This is an individual consideration. Some people get so comfortable in a hammock they easily drift off into blissful slumber. In fact, many campers prefer to sleep in a hammock instead of a cramped tent so they can appreciate the great outdoors in style. The hammock materials also impact comfort, so Anaconda establishes partnerships with premium manufacturers for a luxurious experience. The Tropicana Rio Hammock, for example, is made with 100% cotton for a lightweight and breathable experience even in tropical climates.
Should I get a single or double hammock?
If your quest is for intimate, relaxing times while on vacation, a high quality double hammock will assist admirably. Nothing beats time together with your partner enjoying the scenery and curling up together on a hammock is a sure-fire way to kindle the romance. In addition, a hammock can be a versatile storage solution, a hammock chair, or an extra bed in an emergency. Here are a few great hammock ideas from Anaconda to get you started.
