September 14, 2018

Traditional Comfort and Modern Design Make for an Unbeatable Hammock Experience

Just imagine, for a moment, a late afternoon in mid-September. You’re in your backyard, near a firepit with gently glowing coals as the sun goes down. Maybe you’ve got a cup of hot chocolate in your hands.

A gentle breeze reminds you that cooler weather is on its way, so you pull the blanket a bit closer around your feet as you sway easily in your hammock.

Now that’s an amazing way to spend a September evening: relaxing in a comfortable, cozy Brazilian-style double hammock.

Without a doubt, this deluxe double-hammock is one of the most reliable and popular products we carry. Lightweight and compact, it’s also the perfect option to bring on your next camping trip. Need a retreat a bit closer to home? Hang it on your deck or in your backyard!

Let’s take a closer look at what this deluxe double-hammock has to offer!

Couple-Compatible Size, But Perfect for Solo Hangs

There’s plenty of room to stretch out or share with someone you’re close to. Couple-compatible by design, it’s nonetheless a luxurious escape on your own. Like all Brazilian hammocks, this deluxe double hammock offers a winning combination of comfort and durability.

While we often find that sharing a hammock is a recipe for jumbled legs and discomfort, we can’t deny that the size of these two-person hammocks makes for a truly luxurious hang when you’re on your own. After all, this is the classic hammock style!

This particular hammock uses cotton and polyester threads for your comfort, offering a soft, welcoming feel you can easily drift off to sleep in. In fact, these hammocks make for great bed replacements. In certain Brazilian communities, hammocks are more plentiful than beds!

Quick Set-Up, Perfect for Camping

Weighing in at a mere four pounds when packed up, the deluxe Brazilian-style double hammock is a great option for overnight camping trips. Even if you’re planning on a long journey by foot, canoe, or bike, this hammock’s quick set-up and tear-down time lets you relax that much faster.

Between trips, too, you’ll appreciate how easy to maintain this hammock is.

Machine-washable materials make cleaning a breeze, and the included pouch gives the hammock a safe, protected home when it’s not in use.

Not that you’ll need to worry about damage, though. This hammock’s so durable, we’ll often leave ours out over the full length of the summer, only bringing it in when the cool weather really starts to hit home.

One thing to look out for when machine washing your Brazilian hammock is fading. While washing your hammock in a machine won't necessarily cause damage, it can cause premature fading which could potentially reduce its life expectancy.

At the end of the day, the more TLC you put into your hammock, the longer it will last!

Replace Your Bed with A Hammock!

Are you struggling to get a good night’s sleep? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. More and more people are searching for sleep solutions that leave them feeling rested and energized in the morning.

We’re a bit biased here. We ran an experiment not too long ago where we took the plunge, and we’d seriously recommend making the change!

Replacing your bed with a hammock might be an easy, effective solution for restless sleepers looking for a solution for better sleep.

Beyond the wealth of anecdotal evidence and benefits swapping your bed for a hammock, there have been studies that show that the rocking sensation of a hammock synchronizes your brainwaves for a more soothing, relaxing, and deeper sleep.

That deeper sleep does wonders for your body, as it turns out.

As you enter deeper stages of sleep, your blood pressure drops, hormones are released, the body repairs itself, and you replenish your energy.

Plus, hammocks help evenly distribute your weight, reducing the likelihood of tossing and turning.

Do Hammocks Help Relieve Back Pain?

So we’ve established it’s possible for a hammock to help you get a better night’s sleep, but what about physical comfort? Will sleeping in a hammock cause problems for your back and posture?

As many sound sleepers in South America will attest, no, not necessarily. Sleeping flat on your back is the ideal position, but many people with back pain report that a hammock can be quite comfortable.

Of course, if you have a pre-existing condition, like a pinched spinal nerve, then sleeping in a hammock can cause excruciating back pain. If you have any health conditions or a back injury, consult with your doctor before you swap your bed for a hammock.

Other Things to Love About Your Hammock

Beyond a better night’s sleep and easing back pain, you shouldn’t ignore the obvious list of benefits from making the switch from a bed to a hammock:

  • Easy storage and transport –Moving? Packing this hammock is a one-person job. You can carry it in one hand. Folded up, this hammock takes up next to no space, fitting easily in between larger items or in a backpack.
  • Smaller footprint –Even with a hammock stand, this hammock takes up far less space than a king or queen-size bed. If you’re looking to make the most of every square foot in your home, swapping your bed for this Brazilian-style double hammock is a great way to start.
  • Design and Style Options –Thanks to the multitude of colours available, this hammock offers a range of options to help you match the décor and style in your home.
  • Family-Friendly –The lightweight yet durable material used in this hammock is machine-washable, perfect if you’ve got kids who want to hang out with snacks. Plus, the tighter weave doesn’t have any gaps kids can get stuck in, making it a safe option, too.

Don’t Take Our Word For It: Praise from Happy Customers

A little bit of heaven in my backyard!

“I replaced my old hammock that I had forever with this one ... and discovered a new world of rest and relaxation ... I never knew just how awesome it was to get all comfy and sway under the trees ... in the shade during the day … and looking up at the stars at night. Just happened upon this site and impulse bought ... best impulse I've had! Totally recommend these guys … and this product.”

- Theresa A

No Regrets

“This hammock is great. The fabric is of high quality and definitely tough enough to hold a big adult (at least). As stated on the website, and in my opinion too, the diagonal position works best.”

- Davor

Better Than Anything You’ll Find in the Hammock District

“I wasn't even looking for a hammock but a friend read me the confirmation and shipping emails that he was sent and I thought, “This is a company I want to support. If they put this much effort into such a small, often overlooked part of their customer experience, how amazing must the products themselves be?” I bought the Deluxe Brazilian Double Hammock an hour later and I honestly love it! It is very comfortable and feels quite durable. Myself, my partner and our dog have all spent a few hours in the hammock together and it supports everyone. Buy this hammock!

...I realize that I sound a little TOO into this hammock and that you may be suspicious that I work for the company but I assure you, I don't. I'm just a guy from Newfoundland who loves his new hammock.”
