You raided the Lost Ark.
You united the Seven Kingdoms.
You restored balance to the Force (again).
Now you're looking for the World's Best Hammock...and you've found it.
(Questions about the hanging kit options? Learn more here.)
This is the hammock that put us on the map.
It's called the Double, but don't think of it as just a two-person hammock.
Sure you can fit, and even sleep, two people comfortably. But the Trek Light Double Hammock is really all about you.
The key to relaxing or sleeping in a hammock like a pro is to lie at an angle across it to achieve a flat, better-than-your-bed-at-home surface that conforms to your body without pressure points.

For every hammock sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant two trees in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change. Your simple purchase creates a chain reaction that will feed the hungry, create small business, and generate a huge amount of social good and happiness. You get an amazing hammock and create a legacy of change.
Always test your hanging points for stability and never set up your hammock at a height where a fall or malfunction could cause injury to you, or in any way that could injure the people around you.
Equipment, even brand new equipment, can fail. Trees or structures that appear sturdy are not always what they seem. Be smart and always think about your safety first.
We realize that our customer base consists of responsible and knowledgeable outdoor lovers capable of maintaining a safe environment even in situations that appear dangerous to the outside eye. If you choose to disregard our safety recommendations and hang your hammock from anything above a safe height (3′ or higher), you should always have a safety backup plan in case of failure – a harness, safety ropes, etc. that would protect you from any injury.
When used properly and on trees with healthy, strong bark, your hammock suspension should not cause any damage to the tree. However, not all trees are created equal and some trees have a soft bark layer which can be damaged if you're not careful when you hang your hammock.
Killing a tree so you can enjoy a nap isn't a fair trade in our book. If you have any reason to think the tree you're hanging from could be damaged from your hammock use you should always add a layer of padding underneath your hammock ropes or hang elsewhere. Items like a towel or piece of clothing can be used to pad and protect trees while you're on the trail.
We always recommend getting out of your hammock and checking things out after a few minutes of use to make sure you're not causing any damage to the tree. It's up to you to be smart about your impact - leave no trace!!
I bought this hammock for hanging with my family in our back yard. From the minute I found the site til the first time we hung it and got in, it was a pleasure. The color, material, ease of use and interaction with the company is all great. Super easy to use. Quick to put up and take down.
Sorry . . but I prefer my cotton ones. Trek Light Gear is indeed light, and great for camping trips . . but at home, I find the woven cotton far more comfortable and easier to use. I have used all types of hammocks for years. While I like the lightness of this, and the fact that it dries quickly after getting wet, I don't find it as comfortable to use as the woven cotton of the same style. With the latter, I can sit on the side of it, almost like a hammock chair, and it is extremely easy to get out of. With the nylon, the sides are higher, preventing sitting on the side of it . . and I find the nylon to be hotter than the open weave cotton. so not ideal for daytime naps.
I manage an animal hospital and the days can get crazy, exhausting and emotional. It can go from Zero to Fractious Feral Cat in a hot second. No matter how rewarding it is, sometimes we just need some decompression time. At some point, as a hospital team, we decided to get a hammock to have on the back porch of our clinic (our clinic is a tiny converted house in Campbell) to have for breaks, lunches and some chill times. It has been amazing for the morale of the hospital having this hammock to set up on our back patio! And I myself recently borrowed it from the clinic to take with my husband, friends and I to a cabin in the mountains, and it was so peaceful! I love this hammock! The shipping was also fast, and it's so easy to set up and take down! AND the donating of trees is a great perk and helps you feel even better about your purchase!
