Camping Hammocks to keep you exploring
Camping is the perfect way to get out of the city, away from the rat race and chill out. What better item to help you do that than a camping hammock. Just hook it up, lie back and watch the world go by. There's single hammocks, double hammocks, and hammocks with built-in mosquito nets, every kind you could need.
Types of camping hammock
If you're looking to recreate a Caribbean beach vibe at home or on the road then a mesh design is ideal. These no-fuss hammocks are super easy to put up, and come in a choice of colours from white to red. These are a great choice when the temperature keeps creeping up, as the mesh holes will allow plenty of air to circulate and stop you getting too hot and sweaty.
Hammocks are portable by their nature, but if you're camping and backpacking then a super lightweight hammock is ideal. Look for hammocks that fold down small so they won't take up too much space. Ripstop nylon is a cracking choice if you're going to be using your hammock a lot, as it will stand up to the stresses and strains of frequent use.
When to use a camping hammock
Camping hammocks are versatile and can be used almost anywhere, from backpacking to the beach, in the bush or just in the garden at home. Why not hook a hammock outside your camper or tent and sleep under the stars? Or kick off your boots and relax after a hike. You can also find military-style camping hammocks, which look like a cross between a tent and a hammock. These are ideal for keeping off the ground away from creepy crawlies and stop flying insects getting to you.
What else might you need
If you're sleeping outside then you need a bug net or mosquito net to protect you from biting insects. You'll also need a tarp to put up above your hammock in case of any rain, especially somewhere temperate or a tropical destination in the rainy season.
