What are the must-haves that will make your outdoor time a joy? There’s no right or wrong answer. For me, bright sunshine, fresh air and hammock!


Served as an outdoor life darling, hammock is the ultimate place to relax, which contributes to better sleep under the stars.

You must have an ideal hammock in mind, but there might be still some uncertainties about the details. How to choose a hammock that best meets your needs? We're here to help you find your perfect hang!

Tips when choosing your hammock:

Size: The main difference here is Single vs. Double. Most single hammocks have width in 2-3 feet, while the doubles are around 4-5 feet. The perfection of single hammock lies in that it occupies less space with high satisfaction of demand for use. However, if space allows, double hammock will certainly double the comfort. Feel free to adjust to find the most comfortable position and invite your family, friends or pet to share hammock time.

End use: Backpacking vs. Courtyard. For backpacking, portability shall be the key consideration. If for backyard use only, easy and quick assembly & disassembly of the hammock matters most instead of the hammock weight. If it takes more than 10 minutes to install/remove the hammock, the happiness it brings to you will be greatly reduced. In addition, to prolong the service life of the hammock, we recommend moving it indoors in rainy or bad weather. Hence, it’s a good idea to match your hammock with wheel kit and cover to facilitate moving and protecting it.

Accessories: Hanging hammocks are recommended to be used with tree straps, so that it will not hurt trees but also convenient to set up and use. Of course, you must first estimate the distance between the trees before choosing the right length of hammock. The freestanding hammock comes with stand and can be placed anywhere in the backyard. The assembly design has been optimized to become easier, accompanied with installation manual. Also, if you have any questions or doubts during assembly, let us know. More than happy to help you! For the convenience of daily use, some hammocks are also equipped with magazine bag and cup holder.

Comfort: How to define comfort? It depends on the fabric. Hammock filled with polyester is soft to use, which is suitable for all seasons and meets the needs of most customers. Textilene hammock will be slightly harder, but is perfect for you to hang it by your pool deck as the fabric does not absorb water and is quick drying. The cotton rope hammock features soft because of the large proportion of cotton while the net surface facilitates air circulation and enhances its breathability. The cotton rope hammock may be slightly extended during use. Adjust the length of the chains at both ends of the hammock to find the perfect height of your hammock.
