Thoughts About Hammock Camping

Posted by avatarTrekLightGear last updated April 15, 2010 at 12:20 am

Camping Hammocks have come a long way in design and functionality in recent years.  Instead of the old army mesh that gets tangled in knots and caught on trees, we've now got hammocks made with parachute nylon that's not only more comfortable, but more practical and durable.   It's now easier to bring a hammock on a camping outing than a tent or a camping chair even, they don't take up any more room than your water bottle. 

How many folks out there have ever used a camping hammock, whether as a tent alternative or even just bringing it along to relax around the campsite?   If not, what do you think is keeping you from trying it (other than just not owning one)?  Are you not a hammock lover in general or are there certain aspects of it that you would like to see improved before you try it?

I'm looking forward to hearing your responses...
