How many times have I told you?
There's always money in the banana (hammock) stand.
- George Bluth III
Two things are true about Trek Light Gear:
We've heard just about every banana hammock joke under the sun.
And we hate cancer.
So we've decided to finally do something about both of them and are proud to introduce the all-yellow, cancer-fighting, (Double) Banana Hammock.
Together we're donating $5 from every Banana Hammock sale directly towards cancer research and the fight to eradicate cancer once and for all.
Available right now in a limited quantity, you can be the first on your block to own the only banana hammock you can use as a bed (you could also find a way to wear it if you're creative enough) and help the world's mission to eradicate cancer at the same time.Banana Hammock Bundle Includes:
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 feet 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!!
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.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.
You get an amazing hammock and create a legacy of change.
Our warehouse is continuing to take all necessary measures to ship orders and keep our team safe. Life may feel like it's returning to normal in your local area (we hope!), but the impact of COVID is still extremely present in the world of shipping and fulfillment.
Most orders for in-stock items are leaving our warehouse within 1-3 business days, but please be understanding if it takes additional time to get your order shipped.
If you choose an express shipping rate (FedEx Overnight or FedEx 2-Day) we're still getting most expedited orders out the door within one business day from when you order.
Please note that even though FedEx Ground or Priority Mail may cost more than Standard/Free Shipping, they're not considered an expedited shipping method. Any delivery times quoted are estimates only and it may not ship for 1-3 business days after you order as noted above.
Bottom line: We're doing everything we can to get your order to you quickly and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time!
Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our daily mail pickup will be shipped in the order received.
If you choose a shipping option that has a quoted time like "FedEx Ground (2 Business Days)" or even "FedEx Overnight (1 Day)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly 1 or 2 days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).
When it comes to the carriers, the quoted times should also always be thought of as estimates, not guarantees. Expedited methods like FedEx 2-Day or Overnight are pretty reliable in their delivery times (hence the cost), but services like Ground/Priority can certainly be optimistic with their estimates.
We offer the ability to pre-order and backorder some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.
Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory.
Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!
We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing a separate order so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.
Please see our Can I Request A Specific Shipping Carrier? page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.
When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.
PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!
If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!

The hammocks look awesome! So glad to hear your daughter loves her hammock!
The hammock material is great, and it’s nice and wide! I love the bright yellow too! I’m 5’2” and my husband is 6’1” and we both love this hammock!
I am currently doing a lot of shoveling, live just south of Lake Tahoe, currently dealing with 5' snow.😳❄🌧☃️. I love the customer connection I've felt since ordering and receiving this very cool item. The STOP Hammock Time key ring makes me smile, as until this snow melts and the sun can dry things out, I am patiently waiting. I know this hammock will beat the other three I have had. No doubts at all. Customer service for questions were answered quickly and some humor thrown in too!🤗🙃🥰🤗
You rock, Kathie! Enjoy the snow while it lasts but we hope the sun is shining your way soon for some hammock time!
I'm excited to finally have a banana hammock I'm proud to take out in public!
Ha! This is hilarious. Hammock on and enjoy!
I bought this as a camping tool but instead started to use it for a replacement for my bed. I have chronic lower back pain and I found this Banana Hammock amazing. Really, I had extreme doubts that sleeping in a Hammock could ever have such a positive benefit in my sleeping habits. I get to sleep faster, and I sleep harder. I been getting less sleep but I have a lot more energy then I would when I sleep in a bed.
Putting the Hammock up was quick and easy. I can put it almost anywhere. I bought two eye hooks and installed them so I have a hammock above my bed.
I now sleep in my hammock and in a regular bed. I noticed from my fitbit that I sleep a lot longer and with less movement. Over all this has been a very good investment and I plan to get a tarp and insect net for when I do go camping. I can't wait. I want to get another one because they are amazing. The XL is a must it allows for more room and it is not as bad with two people. It is diffidently a snuggle me closer hammock.
