What To Consider With A Camping Hammock

Insulation

Hammock sleeping can get really cold very quickly. Make sure you have your insulation covered! You have a few options – what one to choose will depend on your sleeping preferences and the temperature.

Use a hammock pad – if you have a camping mat already this may work. It saves another purchase but on the downside they can squirm off multiple times during the night.

Buy a double layer hammock – These have separate compartments for sleeping pads to be placed. Adds weight and additional expense to your trip.

Use an underquilt – These hang below your hammock providing an insulation layer from the cold air.

Protection

Wherever you are going camping ask yourself do you need protection from the cold, wind, rain or bugs? Maybe all three! You can then choose a hammock with the features that you may need.

Design

You really want a flat laying sleep – think the opposite of curled up. Camping hammocks can be designed asymmetrically. You then sleep diagonally and this allows your head and feet to lie lower than in a traditional hammock.

I hope this list of the best camping hammocks was helpful.
