There's really no need for outdoor types to be uncomfortable or sleep on the damp ground when they have this Parachute Expedition Hammock as an option. This lightweight hammock weighs only 1.2 pounds and fits neatly into a free stuff sack, which means it won't weigh down a hiker's backpack or take up a lot of precious room in the trunk of the car.

You can be resting in a matter of minutes. It has ideal portability, meaning you can set it up wherever you'd like.

The Expedition hammock is made of 100 percent Nylon. It's 12 feet long and has a sleeping area of 10 feet in length and 6 feet wide. It is sturdy enough to hold 400 pounds, which makes it a great option for the single sleeper and perfect for a snuggling parent-child adventure – in the wilderness or the backyard! The durable quick-drying material is resistant to mildew and rot, the long-time enemies of camping equipment. This lightweight design comes in optional colors, which gives you the ability to blend in with the natural setting.

Opt out of sleeping on the ground the next time you decide to go camping. This lightweight, easy-to-use product can help you have a good night's sleep and help add enjoyment to the your next camping trip or expedition.

Sydney A. said: Wonderful hammock and the best customer service!

You guys had me with the email I received when my hammock was shipped. The little extra thought and effort was awesome. As for the hammock itself, it is much more comfortable than I could've hoped and feels very durable. I have used it several times solo and doubled up, and no complaints. It goes up quickly and is so easy to roll back into it's stuff sack. Best purchase I've made in a long time. This hammock is going to come with me on a lot of adventures. Thank you!

Rob.J said: Very impressed

I ordered the Expedition Hammock - Double, Hammock Rain Fly - Ultra Light, Eco-Friendly Hammock Tree Straps, Hammock Tarp - Clearance Price, and the Mosquito Net for Hammocks. My order was at the door the next day. I dove into the box and checked everything out. Not one defect or loose thread. I packed everything back up and headed to the park. Setup was a snap. Took a few minutes to get everything hung right and was able to lie down in the hammock for 5 or so minutes before the police came and asked what I was doing. Needless to say I had to pack up and leave BUT, before I was disturbed. I was almost asleep. I can tell I am going to love it.

Alyson B. said: fantastic hammock voyages

i enjoy my hammock both solo and with friends and find joy in discovering various configurations of body placement to enhance comfort levels.

i have chronic low back, arm, and knee pain and find the predictable sensory stimulation of swinging in the hammock therapeutic in distracting me from my pain and allowing me to relax my muscles to reduce tension long-term.

thanks hammock universe!

George M. said: Relaxing and Sturdy

Bought this as a gift and spent the most time in it!! Took it camping, was a great spot to catch some afternoon cat naps or a backwoods sleep. The bag that is attached to the hammock did come loose after 4 nights of use. Other than that minor issue the hammock is a great investment!

Lindsay B. said: My second hammock!

This is the second hammock I have bought from Hammock Universe. Both were presents for family, first my dad and now my brother. We are outdoor enthusiasts and go camping all the time. These hammocks are amazing! They are perfect for the back yard, or camping. They pack up really small into their own bag and are small enough to bring anywhere!
I am very pleased with my purchases!

Crista Freeman said: Best hammock I've ever had

I see a lot of the reviews saying this is a great starter hammock, as if theyll move up to better hammocks when they can afford it. Ive used all sorts of hammocks, many of which are many times more expensive than this, and not one compares to the strength, stability, comfort, and packability of this one. I dont use the attachment they sell to set it on trees...all you need is an overlap rope sling, but the hammock itself works as a bed or romantic get-a-way for two to look at the stars...the only caveat is that you have to be careful to set it up in the position you want it in or youll regret it.

Mama K said: Very comfortable, good size hammock

I love this hammock. It is an excellent size for myself and my two (small) daughters. It blends in nicely when camping or even when setting it up in a park. Easy to set up. Works fabulously with the no-hook tree straps.

The hammock is easy to set up and super comfortable. It looks to be not very durable but once you are on and moving around to get in that perfect spot you realize just how durable it is!!

Crista Freeman said: Made my friends jealous

So happy I bought this. I have already stayed over night in it. Just got back from back country camping and was envy of all my friends.
I replaced the mounting hooks with rings and make me feel more secure. Will be purchasing bug net and maybe the trap in future.
Also this is a great present for anyone.

Well priced.

Crista Freeman said: Hammocks for Aerial Yoga

I am going to be using the hammock for my aerial yoga. Otherwise, it is so confortable, tried to spend the night, but it was a bit too cold.

Crista Freeman said: Absolutely Excellent!!!

This is so comfortable that I'll be buying at least one more. Great as a "chair" when people are over, and exceptionally comfortable for napping in. GREAT on the back!!!

2013-07-18 00:00:00 UTC
Crista Freeman said: Comfy!

Much nicer than a "rope" style hammock, which can be uncomfortable and leave funny marks on the back of you thighs. This hammock is lightweight, (packs up to the size of a football) but very strong and surprisingly cool on a hot day. Can't be beat and the price is right.

I bought these for my Girl Guide group to hammock camp, we sleep in them for the whole weekend. It is no comparison to sleeping on the ground in a tent. We all wake up refreshed and ready to go on our next adventure!

I am extremely happy with my purchase (also purchased the Eco Friendly tree huggers). It is super comfortable and I love the portability. It fits 2 people very comfortably. Shipping was also nice and fast. Overall I highly recommend this company and this product. Can't wait for the warmer weather so I can use it more!

Camp bum said: Great entry level for Hammock Camping

I bought this as an entry level hammock to try hammock camping after hailing a tent everywhere. The double size is great for fall/winter hammock camping as it will readily accommodate a space blanket and foam pad for warmth as well as a bulky sleeping bag. Just add support straps a rigkeline and a tarp - voila instant warm/dry Bivy off the ground. There are more expensive camping-specific hamocks

Crista Freeman said: Nice Product

This is a nice light hammock that packs down small enough to take anywhere with you. The only downside is that it doesn't have any extension lines to attach to trees included with it. I used a webbing loop with a carabiner for each end, and found it fast to set up. It is a good hammock for a day at the beach or relaxing while camping, but it would need a tarp hung over it for overnight camping

I desperately needed a replacement hammock to venture through the back country of British Columbia with one week before I ordered this product from the web site. Not only did it arrived 3 days before my trip, I tested it out in my back yard and it already feels like the best hammock I've ever purchased. I set an alarm for about an hour and passed right out. Can't wait to bring this hammock with me

Crista Freeman said: Very Pleased

I bought this as a 15 year wedding anniversary gift for my wife. She LOVES hammocks and so this was the perfect gift. Set up was pretty simple (I also bought the tree straps) but there were no instructions. Granted it's not difficult to figure out but I wasn't sure if the way I had it set up was the best way. The tree straps for example, do I have them on correctly? No instructions to confirm.

Crista Freeman said: my first hammock

this is the first hammocks i buy ,( i bought 3 ) it is to go camping whit the kids ,i was fed up whit the humidity and the back acke from tente camping and you have to clear a place for the tente, this type of camping is disruptive to nature but hammock camping is a leave no trace kind of camping it is like bushcraft, so this is what we are getting into this season we will start at the end of Mai,

I use hammocks camping and on motorbike trips, etc. This is the smallest and lightest hammock I have ever owned and it holds 2 people. Bigger choice of colors or patterns (camouflage, etc. ) would be nice. The carry pouch makes for a nice drink holder/pocket once the hammock is setup.

Our house and backyard is also setup to click hammocks in all sorts of different rooms and places.
