How to Choose a Sleeping Hammock in 4 Steps:

Hand Woven Fabric on Brazilian Style Hammock

1. First of all, decide on the size hammock you want. For example, do you want a compact single-size hammock, double width or an extra large family size hammock?

By the way, many people find that a double wide hammock works especially well for sleeping since it provides more space and support. In addition, larger size hammocks enable you to use them both lengthwise (as a bed) and sideways (as a chair).

2. Second, consider the look and feel that you want. For instance, do you like macrame/fringe boho hammocks, bright tropical colors or a fabric that is compact and portable, (ie. Yellow Leaf Hammocks)?

3. Third, think about the fabric. Cotton fabrics are very comfortable but tend to be warm in the summer time. Conversely, nylon camping hammocks are very lightweight and breathable. In addition, outdoor material like Sunbrella will perform better outdoors than other less durable materials.

4. Fourth, do you need a stand or will you hang your hammock from 2 trees or using hammock hooks? If you want a stand, usually package bundles (hammock with stand) can save you money.
