Introduction to Camping Hammocks
Camping hammocks are a great way to get out and experience nature in a new way. They are lightweight, durable, and easy to set up, making them the perfect addition to any camping trip. They provide a comfortable and secure way to sleep while camping and can be used in a variety of different locations, from the woods to the beach. Camping hammocks are perfect for solo camping trips or for couples looking to share an intimate camping experience.
Benefits of Camping with a Hammock
There are many benefits to camping with a hammock. Unlike traditional tents, hammocks are lightweight and easy to transport, meaning that you can take them with you wherever you go. They are also more comfortable to sleep in than a tent, as the hammock’s suspension system will cradle you and provide superior support. Furthermore, hammocks allow you to sleep under the stars, creating a unique and unforgettable camping experience.
Types of Camping Hammocks
When it comes to camping hammocks, there are several different types to choose from. The most common type is the traditional Gathered end hammock. Made with a bed of ripstop nylon, and gathered suspension connection at the ends. These hammocks are lightweight and easy to set up, making them perfect for camping trips.
Finally, camping hammocks also come in a variety of different lengths and widths. From 9 feet for younger users to 12 feet long for even the tallest hiker.
Camping Hammock Safety Tips
Just like with any outdoor activity, there are certain safety precautions that should be taken when camping with a hammock. Always make sure that your hammock is securely attached to two sturdy trees or poles, and that it is properly tensioned.
Furthermore, never use damaged or frayed ropes or strings, as these can lead to injuries. Always check your trees to be sure they are healthy with no dead or hanging branches. Additionally, make sure to check your hammock before and after each use for tears or damage.
How to Choose the Right Camping Hammock
When choosing the right camping hammock, there are several factors to consider. First, determine the size of the hammock that you need. Our 9-foot hammocks fit children, but anyone over 5 feet tall should consider longer hammocks for greater comfort.
Next, consider the type of hammock that you want. If you plan on going camping in the woods, a gathered-end hammock is a perfect choice.
Finally, consider the materials that your hammock is made from. Generally speaking, nylon and cotton are the two most popular materials used in camping hammocks. Nylon is lightweight and durable, while cotton is soft and comfortable.

It's time to get organized
Many stress about seam sealing their tarps...How, where, how long will it take are all questions that many face when considering sealing their hammock camping tarp. First off, don't stress. Seam sealing is not something to be very concerned about. It's a pretty easy process and should only take 20-30 minutes of work.
1. Choose a spot to do the seam sealing. The best option is a location that is flat, level, will get good air flow and be warm....60-80 degrees. It will be a spot where you can leave the tarp spread out for 6-24 hours undisturbed. If at all possible having a location where the tarp can be either set up or laid flat. Here in the shop, we use our 12-foot long x 7-foot wide cutting table. But assuming you don't have a table that large laying the tarp flat on a smooth floor will work. Some batches of silicone can have a strong smell if setting up indoors have some way to vent the smell...it will dissipate as the silicone cures but being able to open a window or crack an exterior door for a couple of hours is a good idea.
2. You will need a quality seam sealer to apply. We only use McNett Seam Grip + SIL to seal tarps in the shop and it's the only product we sell and recommend to use on our tarps. It's high-quality silicone that cures fairly quickly with minimal tackiness. It's formulated to self-level if you get it a little thick but no run everywhere.
4. Applying the sealer is best done with a foam brush...a small stiff bristled brush is included with the Seam Grip package but we find it is a bit small and cumbersome compared to using a foam brush. With the foam brush, you are able to get cleaner lines and it will spread the silicone in a smooth even coat.
5. Gather some paper towels. You will want some handy to clean up any drips or runs that you might have. It can also be hand to have a spot to set down the brush and tube of SIL as you work along sections.
