Hammocks provide backpackers and campers with a viable alternative to using a tent or tarp shelter. Even if not used as a primary sleeping place, hammocks can still be used as a way to rest or lounge in the outdoors, and with minimal setup.
Now, not all hammocks are created equal. Some are too small, others tend to be less durable or heavy, and some have an extensive setup process that may defeat the purpose of using one n the first place.
Tripworthy’s Premium Outdoor Hammock avoids many of the common pitfalls of other hammocks, while providing some advantages of its own. This hammock is certainly geared towards the budget-minded outdoors lover, but that doesn’t mean it’s not high quality.
Serious backpackers and amatuer loungers alike will find a lot to love with this one.
Tripworthy didn’t try to reinvent the wheel with this hammock, but they did succeed in giving attention to the details that matter.
The Premium Outdoor Hammock has plenty of room two accommodate two people comfortably. You may even both be able to sleep overnight in it depending on your size, thanks to a slightly wider size than most other double-sized hammocks. Worried about weight? If you can keep things under 500 lbs, you’ll be just fine.
Hammocks are a common backpacking gear item thanks to their size and weight. The Premium Outdoor Hammock passes on both accounts. The hammock can easily compact down to an incredibly small size, and the bag is actually attached to the hammock itself, and even includes a carry handle on the outside that can be attached to your backpack.
Some hammocks require you to start from scratch, depending on some amatuer knot-tying skills, while also supplying your own straps or rope. The Premium Outdoor Hammock is ready to go right out of the bag, and even includes its own straps and ropes.
Yes, the whole point of a backpacking hammock is to be lightweight, that’s no surprise. The Premium Outdoor Hammock weighs in at just under a pound, so it falls on the lighter side of the scale, meaning you’ll barely notice that you’re carrying it with your gear.
The Premium Outdoor Hammock not only includes straps and ropes, it has its own carabiners as well. This truly allows you to have an all-in-one hammock that comes with everything you need to get it hung up in just a few minutes.
It’s hard to find any complaints with this hammock, but if we had to nitpick, the straps are a little on the smaller size. This isn’t a problem with most trees, but if you are in an area with bigger tree sizes, you may need to improvise a little.
This is truly one of the best backpacking hammock values you’ll come across. The Premium Outdoor Hammock is incredibly light and sets up in a pinch, all while making the process a little easier on you.
The extra size can be appreciated by many, along with the extra reinforced stitching that allows it to accommodate a high weight capacity. You’d be wise to include this hammock in your pack on your next trip -- or even just in your backyard.
