How can I make sure I sleep comfortably outdoors?

Enjoy a great night's sleep after a busy day having fun when camping, hiking or trekking with the right sleeping gear from Anaconda. With so many different sleeping options to choose from, you'll be able to find the perfect solution to a good night's rest whatever your circumstances. Choose from camp beds, sleeping bags, airbeds, sleeping mats, hammocks and all the sleeping essentials and accessories that you can think of, from travel pillows to pumps.

No matter where you plan to spend the night, you'll be able to spend it in at least relative comfort with a little planning and organisation before you set off, with the many specially designed sleeping options available at Anaconda.

Which is the best sleeping solution for me?

Different sleeping solutions take up different amounts of space and vary in weight. If you need to carry your bedding, opt for some of the great lightweight sleeping mats available at Anaconda, topped with an inflatable pillow and a sleeping bag for minimum carrying effort. If your vehicle will take the strain, you can splash out on more weighty items such as luxurious inflatable beds, stretchers or camp beds or a combination of the two, depending on space available.

Take into consideration the terrain and the climate, as you may not wish to sleep on rocky ground without some comforting layers, and at some times of the year extra insulation will be required while at other times breathability and air circulation will be more important.

Space in your tent is another consideration, as some tents have space to leave bedding down during the day, while in others it is a matter of clearing away every morning to make room to move about, get dressed and have breakfast!

Are airbeds easy to operate?

Most airbeds available from Anaconda are easy to inflate with a pump, which in some cases may be included with the airbed (see product details) or which can be purchased separately from the range of pumps available. Pumps include manual pumps, electric pumps, pumps that can be run off your vehicle's engine and even rechargeable pumps, so the choice is yours depending on your budget and location.

Most airbeds can also be deflated with pumps when they have a deflate setting, which makes it much easier to extract all the air and leave a manageable parcel to stow back in the car at the end of your trip.

Which other sleeping methods do you recommend?

Folding camp beds or stretchers can be a great solution for those who want to sleep some distance off the ground, and with the addition of a sleeping mat or thin air mattress you'll be able to spend a comfortable night. For those young at heart, a hammock is a romantic sleeping solution that can work equally well for one or two people, but you will need to make sure you have suitable fixing points at your campsite, otherwise a freestanding frame will be needed to hang your hammock from. Anaconda stocks both single and double hammocks.

Can I purchase hammocks at Anaconda?

Anaconda has a great range of hammocks in stock, ranging single to double hammocks and including cotton as well as nylon hammocks. No handy tree in sight to fix your hammock too? Don't worry, Anaconda have that covered too with the great freestanding frame that you can put up to enjoy your snooze in a hammock anytime and anywhere.

Why use a hammock?

Hammocks are immediately recognizable due to their distinctive appearance, but they have been around much longer than many of us realise. First mentioned as far back as the early 1500s, hammocks have been used for sleeping and relaxing by many nationalities and in many different conditions. Some of the benefits of hammocks, as detailed by enthusiasts, are:

Comfort. Because there are no pressure points, the body is able to completely rest. Supported and suspended, sleeping in a hammock is like floating on air.
Stress release. The gentle sway of the hammock is comforting. The mind and body easily relax, recognizing a primal rocking motion that soothed us as children.
Better sleep. Modern sleep studies verify that hammocks provide benefits including longer, deeper sleep.
Affordable. Many people spend thousands of dollars trying to get a bed that allows for a good night sleep. A hammock seems like a real bargain in comparison.
Safety. Depending on where and when you use your hammock, the fact that you are some distance off the ground may make for a better night's sleep.
No bed to make! Enough said.
  

What type of hammock is best for me?

Hammocks are normally made either from cotton or from an-made fabric such as nylon. While nylon hammocks are lighter, durable and dry more quickly after rain, the fabric is not as breathable as cotton so in hot climates they may be less comfortable as they will result in a warmer sleeping environment. If you need to carry your hammock from place t place while hiking or trekking, weight may well be a consideration, but apart from that it is very much a matter of choice.

Hammocks are typically designed with or without a spreader bar, and you'll need to make sure you are comfortable with whatever type of hammock you choose. Hammocks with spreader bars are, according to experts, easier to get in and out of, but are also more prone to tipping at any sudden movement. Hammocks without a spreader bar can be tricky to get in and out of so need to put up at a height where you can sit in them before swinging your legs into them, but will keep you better contained once you are in them.
